One of the most beloved rivalries in history rekindles when Jerry moves into New York’s premier hotel on the eve of the “Wedding of the Century” and forces the desperate planner of the event to hire Tom to get rid of him. The cat and mouse fight that followed threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and possibly the hotel itself. But soon an even bigger problem emerges: a devilishly ambitious employee who conspires against all three. Tom and Jerry’s new big screen adventure, a breathtaking mix of classic animation and live action, breaks new ground for the legendary characters and forces them to do the unthinkable. Work together to save the day.
The film follows Chloë Grace Moretz (Suspiria) Kayla, a new employee at the extravagant Park Hotel, who hires the broken street cat Tom to get rid of Jerry the mouse to keep her job. Michael Peña (Ant Man & the Wasp) has pledged to appear as Terrance, the hotel’s deputy general manager, who is tyranting Kayla and clashes with his new hire when she impresses senior management with her fight against the animal duo.
In addition to Moretz and Peña, Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), Colin Jost (Saturday night live) and Ken Jeong (Crazy rich Asians). Tim Story is a director for Warner Bros. based on a script by Kevin Costello.
