After a surprisingly short trip to the big screen, the live-action version of ‘Tom & Jerry’ can now be seen on the HBO Max platform. The production debuted this Friday (09) in the calendar.
In the plot, Jerry the Mouse lives inside the walls of a large New England country house, where he befriends the former owners, a loving elderly couple. Their unique and comedic friendship comes to an end after the death of the elderly couple and their house is put up for sale. When a young family moves in, Jerry is determined to scare them into taking over his house. The family quickly adopted a stray cat named Tom to help them get rid of their pest problem. In an epic battle for the house, Tom and Jerry soon discover their growing adoration for their family and must work together to protect them from an outside threat. Through teamwork, the two learn the supreme value of family and friendship.
The cast consists of Michael Peña, Chloë Grace-Moretz, Ken Jeong, Rob Delaney, Jordan Bolger and Pallavi Sharda.

‘Tom and Jerry’ began as a series produced in short episodes, averaging seven and 10 minutes each. Between 1940 and 1958, the Hanna-Barbera studio made 114 short films for MGM. Building on the worldwide success of animation, the duo ended up winning a real television series in 1975, titled – initially – “The Tom and Jerry Show”.
