Despite being a film targeting a younger audience, the titular cat’s smile is the stuff of nightmares and we reveal where to watch The Amazing Maurice, confirm if it’s streaming, and introduce you to the voice cast.
Fans of the popular fantasy novelist, Terry Pratchett, will instantly recognize this movie as an adaptation of the author’s 2001 novel, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.
Co-directed by Toby Genkel and Florian Westermann working from a screenplay by Terry Rossio, the computer-animated comedy, The Amazing Maurice, follows a cocky ginger cat who uses his street smarts to come up with a financial scam while working with a group of rats.
Where to Watch The Amazing Maurice
Interested parties will be able to watch The Amazing Maurice in cinemas within the US on Friday, February 3, 2023.
The UK premiere of the animation took place back in December 2022, therefore, the states are somewhat lagging behind.
