(Welcome to ...And more, our simple, no BS guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could afford to know.)
Adaptations of children’s books have a big moment with the recent announcement of “Oh, the places you want to go!” and the upcoming Netflix atisation of the Broadway musical based on Roald Dahl’s “Matilda.” Next year will also bring a movie version of the popular children’s book, “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.” Using what is likely to channel a similar hybrid style of live-action / animation used in films such as the “Paddington” series and “Clifford the Big Red Dog”, here’s everything you need to know for next year’s release of “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile”. “
Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile Release Date and Where to See It
This is not the first time that “Lyle, Lyle Crocodile” has received the cinematic treatment, as it has been transformed into a Storybook Musical for HBO in 1987. The new live-action / animation hybrid film was originally scheduled to premiere on July 22, 2022 , but “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile” will be released in cinemas by Sony Pictures Releasing on November 18, 2022.
What is Lyle, Lyle Crocodile about?
An adaptation of the esteemed children’s story from 1965 of the same name by Bernard Waber, “Lyle, Lyle Crocodile” centers on the titular reptile that lives on East 88th Street in New York City. Lyle helps the Primm family with daily chores and becomes friends with the kids in the neighborhood, and Lyle is perhaps the happiest crocodile in the entire world. Everything seems to be going great with the Primm family until one of their neighbors, Mr. Grumps, decides that Lyle will best be kept in a zoo. Mr. Grumps and his cat Loretta very much dislike Lyle and all the crocodiles for that matter, and any attempt Lyle makes on trying to win them does not go according to plan. It will require all of Lyle’s strength and courage to prove to Mr. Grumps that behind that crocodile smile is a friend. Don’t worry, you can “awww” anytime now.
Lyle, Lyle Crocodile Cast
While specific cast have not yet been announced, “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile” has a solid cast with Javier Bardem (“No Country for Old Men”, “Skyfall”, “Mother!”, “Dune”), Winslow Fegley (“Timmy Failure”) : Mistakes Were Made “,” Nightbooks “,” 8-Bit Christmas “), Constance Wu (” Crazy Rich Asians “,” Fresh Off The Boat “,” The Lego Ninjago Movie “,” Wish Dragon “), Lyric Hurd ( “Roxanne Roxanne”, “Secrets”) and Brett Gelman (“Fleabag” “Married”, “Eagleheart”, “Stranger Things”). It’s safe to assume that the child roles should play child roles, but then again, one of them may pronounce Lyle. Our hope is that Lyle will be voiced by Bardem, but he would be a great Mr. Grumps.
