Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile: you're not ready for the trailer for this weird musical

Singer Shawn Mendes lends his voice to a crocodile in Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, a crazy musical comedy that is revealed in a first trailer .

Dogs singing while barking is adorable and everyone knows it, and in movies a lot of animals seem to be endowed with a certain talent for singing. From Happy Feet to All On Stage to Alvin and the Chipmunks, animals have proven that they, too, deserve to become singing stars and the studios have understood this. It's Sony's turn to offer its music-loving beast in Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, a musical about a singing crocodile.

Canadian singer Shawn Mendes lends his voice to the friendly crocodile in this film directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, who have already directed Happy Brothel! and A Very Modern Family, two comedies with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, as well as The Kings of Skateswith Will Ferrell, we are therefore dealing with two specialists in comedy. Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile revealed himself in a cheerful and fun trailer, although downright high.

As in Alvin and the Chipmunks, the crocodile of Lyle, Lyle, Crocodileisn't really a realistic creature without either being an animated character like in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? for example. The Primm family, who have just moved to New York, find Lyle in their attic, a tame croc who wears a scarf, who apparently likes to take baths with lots of bubbles and who has only one thing on his mind: break into the music. Its owner and manager, the whimsical Héctor P. Valenti, is played by Javier Bardem.

Constance Wu and Scoot McNairy play Mrs. and Mr. Primm, the happy parents of Josh (Winslow Fegley), the little boy who will befriend the reptile. The synopsis tells us that Lyle's freedom will be challenged by Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the family's neighbor, who considers the croc's place to be in a zoo.

The songs in the musical were written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the lyricists of The Greatest Showman, the musical biopic starring Hugh Jackman, as well as La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen and the next Snow White. Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is the adaptation of the book of the same name by Bernard Waber published in 1965.

The musico-croco film will land in French theaters during the All Saints holidays, October 26, 2022.
