First Look At The Live-Action Clifford The Big Red Dog Movie

Well guys, it's here. The first look at the most hotly-anticipated movie in decades. We're talking - of course - about Clifford the Big Red Dog.


Yes, the waiting is over, and we've finally got a sneak peek at the live-action version of the children's cartoon classic canine.

So, perhaps you were unaware that this was even being made - if you've been living under a rock, that is - but it actually hasn't been easy for the movie, simply entitled Clifford the Big Red Dog, to get to this point in the first place.


The film - like so many other films in this wretched year - fell by the wayside and was forced to mothball production thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

That means that instead of being able to enjoy Clifford's live action silver screen debut this November, we've now got to wait until November 2021 until we'll see the finished product in its full glory.

So, what can we learn from this brief glance into the movie?


Well, it's going to be about a dog, that dog is big and red, and his name is Clifford.

To be honest, we haven't actually learned an awful lot about the production that we couldn't have hazarded a decent guess at before.

That being said, the big red dog in this clip is pretty cute, so that's nice. It's probably not going to turn out like the first go at creating the CG Sonic the Hedgehog.

That was pure nightmare fuel.

Clifford the Big Red Dog is based on a series of Scholastic books that became a popular kids' TV show.

The film will follow a schoolchild called Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) who runs into a magical dude who rescues animals - played by Monty Python star John Cleese, no less.

That's how Emily Elizabeth came to be the owner of a lovable red pup called Clifford.


Then she awakens the following day to discover that the puppy is now absolutely massive.

Who could have seen that coming?

Anyway, that will inevitably lead to situations of intrigue and hilarity as they attempt to navigate their lives in New York with an absolute unit of a dog running about the place.

Also starring Jack Whitehall and Sienna Guillory, we'll find out exactly what all the fuss is about when the film eventually releases on 5 November next year.
