Join Gallery Nucleus on Saturday March 22nd for a very special presentation of the making of the film by the talents behind it as they share rarely seen images and reveal interesting details about the creative process.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a highly anticipated upcoming 3D computer-animated comedy adventure film based on the characters from the Peabody’s Improbable History segments of the 1960s animated television series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. The film features Mr. Peabody, a talking dog who is the smartest being in the world, and his adopted boy Sherman. When Sherman’s misuse of their time traveling WABAC machine results in disastrous and comical events, it is up to them to put things on track before the space-time continuum is irreparably destroyed.
