screen adaptation of Beatrix Potter's beloved children classic which jumps into theatres next February in US and March in Europe.
  PETER RABBIT the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter's feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover (Rose Byrne) who lives next door. James Corden voices the character of Peter with

playful spirit and wild charm. Margot Robbie and Daisy Ridley are also in the voice cast. The first reactions to the trailer are very negative, saying that Potter is probably turning in her grave watching Peter turned into a party animal instead of living in an innocent, charming world that has captivated so many childhoods.
