First peak at the love story of the year – Gnomeo and Juliet

There is nothing we like more at TFR Towers than a garden gnome or two, so imagine our delight when we saw the trailer for Gnomeo and Juliet.

A sneak peak of the film hit the internet yesterday, as did the first images of the Touchstone Pictures film which will be in 3D.

As you may have worked out, Gnomeo and Juliet is a re-telling of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet, but it features star-crossed gnomes rather than humans.

Yes, the concept may sound rather silly, but check out the cast! Director Kelly Asbury has got some pretty legit actors involved. The award winning James McAvoy is the voice of Gnomeo and The Devil Wears Prada star Emily Blunt is his leading lady as Juliet.

The rest of the cast is just as impressive, listen out for the voices of Jason Statham, Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Patrick Stewart, Jim Cummings, Julie Walters, Matt Lucas, Stephen Merchant, Ashley Jensen and Ozzy Osbourne. Phew!

However what we are most excited about is the fact that only bloody Elton John has done the soundtrack.

Sounds good doesn’t it? Do you think it will better than what Disney and Pixar have been doing recently?
