DreamWorks Animation plans monster fun with the 'Abominable' trailer

From DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio comes an epic 2,000-mile adventure that will take audiences from the streets of Shanghai to breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes. Check out the first trailer for the animated movie “Abominable” in the player below!

When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.

But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.

Abominable is written and directed by Jill Culton (“Open Season,” “Monsters, Inc.,” “Toy Story 2”) and is produced by Suzanne Buirgy (“Kung Fu Panda 2,” “Home”). Peilin Chou of Pearl Studio also produces. The film is executive produced by Tim Johnson (“Over the Hedge,” “Home,” “ANTZ”), Frank Zhu (“Checked In,” “Lotus Code”) and Li Ruigang (“Kung Fu Panda 3,” “The Taking of Tiger Mountain”) and is co-directed by Todd Wilderman (“Trolls,” “The Croods”).

“Abominable” will be released by Universal Pictures worldwide beginning September 27. In China, the film will be distributed by Pearl.
