Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Sony Pictures Releasing International has shared a new trailer for its 2018 film Peter Rabbit.

Directed by Will Gluck, the big-screen adaptation of Beatrix Potter's beloved stories features the voice talents of James Corden as the titular, animated bunny, and Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki and Daisy Ridley as Peter's sisters: Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. Rose Byrne plays the live-action role of kind-hearted Bea and Domhnall Gleeson portrays Peter's human nemesis Mr. McGregor.

"Every British child falls in love with Peter Rabbit sooner or later. I hope that a new generation will see this film and rediscover the incredible books and storytelling of Beatrix Potter and fall in love with the character as I did. That's why I wanted to be part of this film," Corden said in a statement, announcing this week's 2 1/2-minute preview, which shows Peter trying to escape Mr. McGregor's clutches.

"In making this film, we've always felt as humble custodians entrusted with Peter's legacy. My parents introduced Peter to me, and I, in turn, introduced him to my own children -- and it's my great honor to be directing a film that will bring him to cinemas everywhere," Gluck added.
