Take a look at the teaser trailer released for Smallfoot, an upcoming CG-animated feature boasting a cast that includes Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Common and LeBron James, among others.

The plot follows Migo (Channing Tatum), a Yeti whose life takes a turn when he comes across something he thought was only a myth – a human. This “smallfoot” brings Migo fame and a chance with the girl of his dreams, but it also throws his Yeti community into an uproar.

The film is directed by Karey Kirkpatrick, whose directing credits include Over the Hedge and Imagine That and writing credits include Chicken Run and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Jason Reisig, supervising animator on Kung Fu Panda and Trolls, co-directs.

Corden, by the way, is certainly embracing voice work; last year he provided his vocal stylings to Trolls, this year to The Emoji Movie (shudder), and next year to Peter Rabbit, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, and this Yeti adventure.

Smallfoot, also featuring voice work from Gina Rodriguez, Danny DeVito, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry and Jimmy Tatro, arrives in Australia on September 27 and opens in the US on September 28, 2018.

Official synopsis for Smallfoot:

An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human. News of this “smallfoot” brings him fame and a chance with the girl of his dreams. It also throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in a rollicking story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.
