Benedict Cumberbatch's The Grinch to be released in India on November 8
This is the second big-screen adaptation of the story after 2000's live-action adaptation by Ron Howard, featuring Jim Carrey as the Grinch
The animated film, The Grinch, directed by Scott Mosier and Yorrow Cheney, and voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, will hit the screens in India on November 8.
The Illumination and Universal animated feature is based on Dr Seuss' 1957 book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, that tells the tale of the titular grouch who plots to ruin Christmas for the residents of his neighbouring village of Who-ville. He lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with his loyal dog, Max, and with each Christmas, his peace is disturbed by bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realises there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas.
Cumberbatch has voiced the iconic character of Grinch, while actors Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely and Angela Lansbury are also a part of this film. This is the second big-screen adaptation of the story after 2000's live-action adaptation by Ron Howard, featuring Jim Carrey as the Grinch.
