We have yet to see any serious animated footage from Jerry Seinfeld’s Bee Movie. The two previous teaser trailers involved the comedy actors in Bee suits (if you haven’t seen them, check them out – the Steven Spielberg cameo is not to be missed). The first theatrical trailer has been released, and finally we get our first real look at the film itself. Watch the new trailer after the jump.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not yet sure about this one. The animation looks fine, but I’m not completely sold on the story. What is the story?
The official plot synopsis follows: Barry B. Benson (Seinfeld), a bee who has just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a special trip outside the hive, Barry’s life is saved by Vanessa (Zellweger), a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue us.
Moviefone has the new trailer in full High Definition for those interested.
The voice cast for the project includes: Jerry Seinfeld, Renee Zellweger, Matthew Briderick, John Goodman, Chris Rock, Rip Torn, Eddie Izzard, Alan Arkin, Oprah Winfrey, Kathy Bates, Larry King, Larry Miller, Barry Levinson, Colin Quinn and more. Bee Movie hits theaters on November 2, 2007.
