The Garfield Movie, a 2024 animated film from Sony Pictures, features an impressive cast of franchise stars.
Set to release May 24, 2024, and inspired by Jim Davis's comic strip, The Garfield Movie follows the lazy, lasagna-loving cat Garfield as he embarks on an adventure with his estranged, street cat father named Vic.
The Garfield Movie is the third theatrical Garfield film but only the second to feature a brand-new cast of actors voicing the classic comic strip characters.
Every Main Actor & Character in The Garfield Movie
Chris Pratt - Garfield
Not only is Chris Pratt a familiar face in live-action franchises, such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, but his voice is becoming equally familiar in the world of animated blockbusters having voiced Emmet in The Lego Movie and Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
For The Garfield Movie, Pratt once again voices the star of the film; and from what the first trailer revealed, his Garfield is staying true to the comic strip's character's love of carbs and the pampered house cat life.
However, the upcoming film also looks to show Garfield outside his comfort zone as he embarks on an outdoor adventure with his estranged father.
Harvey Guillén - Odie
While Odie often bears the brunt of Garfield's sarcasm and disdain in the comics and 2004's Garfield: The Movie, this film's trailer only shows Garfield introducing Odie to his father and Odie then joining Garfield on his newest adventure.
Samuel L. Jackson - Vic
While Jackson is best known for his live-action roles, he's no stranger to voice acting having lent his voice for Frozone for The Incredibles, Mace Windu in Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie, and Nick Fury in What If...?
Vic isn't a new Garfield character but has been redesigned for the film and he now sports orange fur, just like Garfield, and is significantly bigger and more muscular.
Nicholas Hoult - Jon Arbuckle
While previous Garfield movies featured a live-action Jon Arbuckle, Garfield and Odie's owner, Nicholas Hoult is the first to voice the character in a theatrical film.
The Garfield Movie trailer opens with Jon looking lonely, a theme from the comic strips, before finding and then adopting a baby Garfield. While the footage doesn't show how Vic's arrival impacts Hoult's version of Jon, other shots hint at his care and devotion for both Garfield and Odie.
While Hannah Waddingham's character in The Garfield Movie has yet to be revealed, the actress has appeared in Game of Thrones, Sex Education, and won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Ted Lasso.
Another actor whose Garfield character remains under wraps is Samuel L. Jackson's Pulp Fiction co-star, Ving Rhames, whose big-screen roles range from the Mission Impossible franchise to Lilo and Stitch.
In addition to her tenure on Saturday Night Live and Schmigadoon!, Cecily Strong recently voiced the character of Ms. Malkin in the animated Netflix film, Leo.
Best known for his role as Roy Kent in Ted Lasso, and for which he won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor, Brett Goldstein's Garfield character has yet to be announced.
The award-winning Saturday Night Live star Bowen Yang has a history of live-action and voice acting roles, including Monsters at Work, Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, and Awkwafina is Nora from Queens.
The Garfield Movie arrives in theaters on May 24, 2024.
