Whether it’s joking or not, the news that host Ratinho would be voicing Jerry in the upcoming live-action ‘Tom and Jerry’ didn’t please netizens.
Through social media, the public has spoken out against the use of the presenter’s image because of his constant controversial statements, such as the defense of the military dictatorship in Brazil, and his flirtation with fascist ideologies (such than the murder of corrupt people and social cleansing.).
I would take my kids to see Tom and Jerry at the movies, if @wbpictures_br weren’t meant to dub a guy who advocates a military coup and the execution of those who don’t agree with it. # ratinhonão #TomEJerryOFilme

#TomEJerryOFilme in Brazil only subtitled, too bad @WarnerMedia and @ATT ended up like the movie even before its release in Brazil.

Recalling that the film is already screened in national cinemas.
The cast consists of Michael Peña, Chloë Grace-Moretz, Ken Jeong, Rob Delaney, Jordan Bolger and Pallavi Sharda.
Jerry, the rat, 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 elderly couple pass away and their house is put up for sale. When a young family moves in, Jerry is determined to scare them and not take back 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 family and must work together to protect them from an outside threat. Through teamwork, the two learn the supreme value of family and friendship.
“Tom and Jerry” began as a series produced in short episodes, averaging seven and 10 minutes each. Between the 1940s and 1958, the Hanna-Barbera studio made 114 short films for MGM. With the worldwide success of animation, the duo ended up winning a real television series in 1975, called – initially – “The Tom and Jerry Show”.
