Paramount Pictures is getting the word out early about its upcoming Clifford the Big Red Dog movie, as they’ve chosen today to reveal a first look at the titular furry friend. Based on the beloved Scholastic kids books of the same name, Clifford the Big Red Dog is a family movie that doesn’t hit theaters until November 5, 2021, but this first look teaser fully unveils how they’re bringing Clifford to life. The answer? CG of course, but he looks kinda cute!
We don’t see any actual movie footage in this teaser, as it’s really just meant to showcase how Paramount is bringing Clifford to life. CG effects have improved tremendously over just the last few years, but it’s still a bit too early to tell if Clifford will be convincing throughout the entire movie or if he’ll serve as a cartoony distraction like in the recently released Call of the Wild, in which Harrison Ford interacted solely with a CG pup.
