Live-Action Clifford the Big Red Dog to Debut in Theaters & Paramount+

Nearly two months since Paramount Pictures had pulled Clifford the Big Red Dog off its theatrical schedule, Deadline brings word that the studio has officially set a new release date for the live-action/CG-hybrid film. However, this time, instead of a traditional theatrical release, they’ve opted to give the long-delayed comedy a simultaneous theatrical and streaming release.

Originally scheduled to debut last September 17, the live-action Clifford the Big Red Dog film has now been slated to premiere on Wednesday, November 10, in theaters and on Paramount+.
