New Tom & Jerry Movie Coming in November

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced this week that a new, animated movie based on the characters of Tom and Jerry will be coming to DVD in November. Titled Tom & Jerry: Snowman's Land, the film will follow on the heels of the just-announced Trick-Or-Treat, Scooby-Doo!, marking the second big brand at Warner Animation to get a seasonal special in two months, with both heading direct to DVD. In this movie, a snow mouse comes to life, giving a Frosty the Snowman-style adventure with little mousey buck teeth that give a little bit of an "Olaf from Frozen" vibe.

This is the first big release featuring the character since last year's Tom & Jerry, a live-action/CGI hybrid feature from Fantastic Four director Tim Story, which brought the characters to New York City and introduced them to a young hotel employee played by Chloe Grace Moretz. Originally created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, the characters have been a near-constant presence in popular culture since then, with over 150 shorts, a number of different TV shows, and 13 direct-to-DVD movies, with Warner Bros. sometimes treating the pair like The Muppets and fitting them into existing stories to create projects like Tom and Jerry and the Wizard of Oz and Tom & Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

You can see the trailer for Snowman's Land below.
