DreamWorks has released another teaser trailer for its upcoming feature film, Bee Movie. Like the first one, this ad features voice star Jerry Seinfeld in a bee costume trying to deal with the hardships of making a live-action movie about insects living in New York City. Famed director Steven Spielberg shows up and suggests that they make it a cartoon, and then we get a brief glimpse at how the film’s animation will look.
Sated for release on Nov. 2, Bee Movie is co-written and produced by Seinfeld, who voices the role of Barry B. Benson, a recent college graduate who wants to do more with his life than make honey. He ventures out of the hive, meets a florist named Vanessa (Renee Zellweger) and decides to sue the human race for stealing honey from bees.
The film’s all-star cast also includes Chris Rock (Madagascar), John Goodman (Monsters, Inc.) Kathy Bates (Popey’s Voyage: The Quest for Pappy), Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine), Matthew Broderick (The Producers) and Patrick Warburton (The Emperor’s New Groove).
Bee Movie is being directed by Simon J. Smith (the Shrek 4-D amusement park attraction) and Steve Hickner (The Prince of Egypt), with Christina Steinberg (National Treasure) producing with Seinfeld. The family comedy will follow the debut of DreamWork’s Shrek 3, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 18, 2007.
