Turbo is a new animated film from Dreamworks. The film is about racing, but its star is a snail. Yes, a snail. It does not go much beyond that. I don’t know if this will be a mostly animal-centric film, or if humans will be involved as well. I was a bit taken aback when the music from Drive started playing. I think it borders on blasphemy to use that music for an animated film, even if it is only a teaser.
Turbo features the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg, and Samuel L. Jackson.
“From the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail who kicks into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own. So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams, before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500.”
Turbo is in theatres July 19, 2013.
