added: Tue, Sep 18th '18

He's mean. He's green. And he wants to steal Christmas! However, on the plus side, he has one helluva adorable dog!

Watch the new official trailer for "The Grinch," a new 3D animated comedy that features the esteemed voice talent of Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, Avengers: Infinity War).

The film, which hails from award-winning animation studio, Illumination Entertainment, who brought you "Despicable Me," "The Secret Life of Pets," and "Sing," is a new animated retelling of Dr. Seuss' classic Christmas tale, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!"

Cumberbatch voices the irascible Grinch, a green grouchy recluse who, over the years, have grown to despise the Christmas holiday. So much so that he has decided to disguise himself this year as Santa Claus, so he can sneak into Whoville to steal everybody's Christmas presents. He is truly a "mean one."

"The Secret Life of Pets" co-helmer Yarrow Cheney directs the animated film, sharing co-directing credits with filmmaker Kevin Smith's frequent producer partner Scott Mosier, who is making his feature directorial debut.

Featuring new songs by Tyler, the Creator, "The Grinch" will open in theaters on November 9th.

For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved holiday classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it's a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.

Academy-Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.

Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.

Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who -- a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer -- plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch's more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all?
