In the trailer, we get our first glimpse of Kick-Ass' Chloë Grace Moretz, Catastrophe star Rob Delaney, MCU favourite Michael Peña and Ken Jeong mixing it up with the animated characters.

The movie is directed by Ride Along's Tim Story and produced by Ready Player One's Chris DeFaria.

Previously, Peña waxed lyrical about his experience working on the project, with particular emphasis on Moretz's talent.

"Oh, man, that was so cool," he said. "Sometimes, you show up on these movies and the actor is still trying to find it. I don't know if they're not prepared or whatever, but it happens every so often.
