Garfield, a well-known cartoon pet since its debut in the 1978 Jim Davis comic strip, has become a global icon with various TV series, holiday specials, films, and merchandise. Despite a dedicated fanbase, only two live-action/CGI films, both featuring Bill Murray as the main character, have been released in almost 20 years. Now, fans’ wishes are coming true as the lasagna-loving cat is gearing up for its first animated theatrical release.

In 2016, Alcon Entertainment announced its venture into animation with a Garfield project, which faced initial production challenges. However, things picked up in November 2021 when Chris Pratt was revealed as the voice behind the beloved character. With a steady stream of promotional updates, we bring you a straightforward overview of all the current details about The Garfield Movie.
