Netflix has released the official trailer and key art for their newest animated film America: The Motion Picture, featuring a voice cast led by Channing Tatum as George Washington. The video features Tatum’s George Washington in an alternate historical timeline where he leads a revolution against Benedict Arnold and King James, with the help of the unlikely group of individuals that he assembled. The film will be available for streaming on Wednesday, June 30.
In this wildly tongue-in-cheek animated revisionist history, a chainsaw-wielding George Washington assembles a team of rabble rousers – including beer-loving bro Sam Adams, famed scientist Thomas Edison, acclaimed horseman Paul Revere, and a very pissed off Geronimo – to defeat Benedict Arnold and King James in the American Revolution. Who will win? No one knows, but you can be sure of one thing: these are not your father’s Founding… uh, Fathers.
Check out the official trailer below:
The voice cast includes Channing Tatum as George Washington, Simon Pegg as King James, Judy Greer as Martha Dandridge, Bobby Moynihan as Paul Revere, Raoul Trujillo as Geronimo, Jason Mantzoukas as Samuel Adams, Olivia Munn as Thomas Edison, Will Forte as Abraham Lincoln, Killer Mike as Blacksmith, and Andy Samberg as Benedict Arnold.
America: The Motion Picture is directed by Matt Thompson (Archer) from a screenplay written by Dave Callaham (The Expandables, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings). Producers are Callaham, Tatum, Adam Reid, Peter Kiernan, Will Allegra, and Reid Carolin along with Oscar-winning animated producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
