Lifetime Network has released the Grumpy Cat movie trailer, giving us our first look at Aubrey Plaza voicing the internet’s favorite cat (whose real name is actually “Tardar Sauce”, no joke) in her first fictional film adventure Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. Hit the jump to watch the first trailer for Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.
Grumpy Cat Movie Trailer
We previously told you that Jane Lynch was initially offered the role of Grumpy Cat before Aubrey Plaza became involved. While I think she is the perfect actress for the voice role, the film is still a television movie produced by Lifetime, so its no surprise that the quality is on par with their other productions, television movies like The Real St. Nick or The Christmas Consultant.
In Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, Plaza voices Tardar Sauce, a cat living in a pet shop at the mall. Her lonely existence has led to a sour outlook, but her life changes one day when 12-year-old Chrystal (Megan Charpentier, Mama) walks into the store. The two become friends after Chrystal realizes she is the only person who can hear Tardar Sauce talk. Their ensuing adventure involves evil dognappers, life-and-death situations and, of course, the true meaning of Christmas.
In “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” Grumpy Cat is a lonely cat living in a mall pet shop. Because she always gets passed over and never gets chosen by customers, this kitty develops a sour outlook on life until…one day during the holidays, a very special 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal enters the pet store and falls in love with Grumpy Cat. A unique friendship is formed between the two when Chyrstal finds she is the only person who can hear this unique feline talk. In the middle of the holiday rush, Grumpy reluctantly thwarts the kidnapping of an expensive exotic dog she can’t stand and rescues Chyrstal after the mall closes on Christmas Eve. Will Grumpy Cat learn the true meaning of Christmas, or will it be in Grumpy’s words, “Worst. Christmas. Ever?”
Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever will premiere on November 29th 2014 on Lifetime.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
