An Early Dip Into "Flushed Away"

by | February 8, 2006 | Comments

DreamWorks’ next animated feature, "Flushed Away," doesn’t hit the screens until November, but the studio thought you might just like a little peek behind the scenes of their Brit-centric new comedy. It’s about an ritzy rodent who gets flushed down the loo and suffers through all kinds of adventures in the London sewers. Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet star, and the early sneak peek is available right here.

"Roddy is a decidedly upper-crust "society rat" who makes his home in a posh Kensington flat, complete with two hamster butlers named Gilbert and Sullivan. When a common sewer rat named Syd comes spewing out of the sink and decides he’s hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the "whirlpool." Syd may be an ignorant slob, but he’s no fool, so it is Roddy who winds up being flushed away into the bustling sewer world of Ratropolis. There Roddy meets Rita, an enterprising scavenger who works the sewers in her faithful boat, the Jammy Dodger. Roddy immediately wants out, or rather, up; Rita wants to be paid for her trouble; and, speaking of trouble, the villainous Toad-who royally despises all rodents-wants them iced.literally. The Toad dispatches his two hapless hench-rats, Spike and Whitey, to get the job done. When they fail, the Toad has no choice but to send to France for his cousin-that dreaded mercenary, Le Frog."

Also on board the voice cast are Andy Serkis, Ian McKellen, Bill Nighy, and Jean Reno.
