On Wednesday morning, Paramount Pictures gave the first glimpse into the live-action adaptation of the scholastic books.
While the footage is just a teaser, it shows the title dog in all its glory – and includes a couple of real, smaller dogs for perspective so viewers can get an idea of how big he actually is.
The movie, due out next year, stars Jack Whitehall, Darby Camp, Tony Hale, Sienna Guillory, David Alan Grier, Russell Wong and John Cleese.
« When middle school student Emily Elizabeth (Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (Cleese) who gives her a little red pup, she never expected to wake up to find a giant ten foot dog in her tiny New York apartment « says the official synopsis.
« While her single mother (Guillory) is out on business, Emily and her fun-loving, but impulsive Uncle Casey (Whitehall) embark on an adventure that will keep you posted as our heroes play a role in Biting Off the Big Apple, « it continued. « Based on the beloved scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big! »
