Based on the iconic children’s series by Beatrix Potter, Peter Rabbit centers on the titular character, a self-confident and mischievous rabbit (Corden) who is determined to claim victory over the animal hating Mr. McGregor (Domnhnall Gleeson). McGregor is vying for the affections of his neighbor Bea (Rose Byrne), and it’s up to Peter and his siblings (voices of Margot Robbie, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki) to stop the coupling from coming to fruition. Will Gluck, who helmed the 2014 feature Annie, directs.
“I guess when he does mess up and make a mistake, he rectifies it in the best way possible,” said Corden. “And that I think is the best message for the film really which is everyone is going to make mistakes, all the time, all of us, whoever you are, there are screw ups coming your way. But what’s important is how you deal with those mistakes and who you are in those mistakes and that you learn from them and try not to make them again.”
