Third Trailer for Illumination's 'The Grinch' with Benedict Cumberbatch

Pharrell Williams Benedict Cumberbatch

Illumination's The Grinch will get a boost from the studio's good luck charm, Pharrell Williams, set to serve as the film's narrator.

The film is directed by Scott Mosier and Yarrow Cheney, adapted from Dr. Seuss' book by Michael LeSieur and Tommy Swerdlow. Williams provided music for all of those movies, and his song "Happy", which appeared on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, became a massive hit in 2013. For the upcoming holiday season, Tyler, The Creator has made a decision to take part, and will remake the theme song for the iconic children's film How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Watch the trailer for the movie featuring Tyler, The Creator and Danny Elfman's new version of "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" below via Pitchfork. Producing are Illumination's Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, with Latifa Ouaou, Audrey Geisel and Chris Renaud the executive producers.

Benedict Cumberbatch voices the title role of The Grinch, with Rashida Jones, SNL's Keenan Thompson, Cameron Seely and Angela Lansbury providing the other main voices, with Lansbury voicing The Mayor of Whoville. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food. "The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit". Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus?
