Adam Sandler’s next project for Netflix is animated comedy Leo, and the trailer for it has landed.
Under his lucrative deal with Netflix, Adam Sandler has made several films for the streaming service, including the Murder Mystery films and Hubie Halloween.
His latest film is animated comedy Leo. The synopsis reads as follows:
Actor / comedian Adam Sandler delivers signature laughs in this coming-of-age animated musical comedy about the last year of elementary school – as seen through the eyes of a class pet. Jaded 74-year-old lizard Leo (Sandler) has been stuck in the same Florida classroom for decades with his terrarium-mate turtle (Bill Burr). When he learns he only has one year left to live, he plans to escape to experience life on the outside but instead gets caught up in the problems of his anxious students — including an impossibly mean substitute teacher. It ends up being the strangest but most rewarding bucket list ever…
The voice cast also includes Cecily Strong, Jason Alexander, Sadie Sandler, Sunny Sandler, Rob Schneider, Jo Koy, Jackie Sandler, Heidi Gardner, Robert Smigel, Nick Swardson, Stephanie Hsu, and Nicholas Turturro.
Robert Smigel co-directed the film with Robert Marianetti from a script they co-wrote with David Wachtenhei.
Leo will stream on Netflix from the 21st November.
