The world-famous orange tabby cat is back, and this time, with a new voice.

In this newest escapade, Chris Pratt lends his vocal talents to the lasagna aficionado, ensuring a fresh and comedic spin on the beloved cat’s personality.
## A Star-Studded Cast for Garfield’s Journey

## Nostalgic Flashbacks and New Exploits
The beginning of the trailer tugs at the heartstrings with a touching flashback featuring a young Garfield encountering his future owner, Jon. Their first meeting unfolds in an Italian restaurant, where the endearing kitten instantly wins Jon over—perhaps more so with his appetite than his cuddles.
The film teases what’s in store with its official synopsis:
> “Garfield, the renowned Monday-hating, lasagna-craving feline, finds himself gearing up for a zany adventure overseas. Having stumbled upon his long-lost father, the ragtag alley cat Vic, Garfield, alongside his loyal pup Odie, will reluctantly leave their cushy life behind to partake in an uproarious high-stakes heist.”
## More Than Family Ties
It becomes evident that Vic’s return isn’t a simple family matter. He ropes Garfield and Odie into a mysterious caper, promising action and laughs alike. Chris Pratt and Samuel L. Jackson lead an impressive lineup featuring Nicholas Hoult, Hannah Waddingham, Brett Goldstein, Ving Rhames, Cecily Strong, Bowen Yang, and Luke Cinque-White.
Helmed by Mark Dindal and crafted by scriptwriters Paul A. Kaplan, Mark Torgove, and David Reynolds, the film is set to deliver a rich narrative and entertaining antics.
