British animation The Canterville Ghost lands in September, and the first trailer for it has landed.

Legendary comedy double act Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are reunited, if only in voice form, in animated family comedy The Canterville Ghost, an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde story – Fry portrayed the playwright in 1997’s Wilde.

In the works since 2014, and originally slated for release in 2016, the synopsis reads as follows:

This Oscar Wilde tale adaptation reunites the actors Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie and a fantastic voice cast in this spooky animated adventure. The poor ghost of Sir Simon Canterville is roaming his castle searching in vain for a brave descendant who will release him from the Canterville curse by performing a brave deed. An American family moves in and finds the ghost amusing, but a young girl in the family can release him – if she dares.

The voice cast also includes Freddie Highmore, Toby Jones, Hugh Laurie, Imelda Staunton, Stephen Fry, Miranda Hart, and Emily Carey.

It marks the feature directorial debut of Shaun The Sheep storyboard artist Kim Burdon, who co-directed with Robert Chandler from a screenplay by Giles New and Keiron Self.

The Canterville Ghost will be released in UK cinemas on the 22nd September.
