From the makers of "The Incredibles" comes a new animated adventure film, "Ratatouille."
Releasing June 29 – just in time for summer break – "Ratatouille" tells the story of a rat named Remy who dreams of becoming a great chef. Yes, it's an unthinkable combination: a rat and a five-star gourmet restaurant. Ewww. But let's give the little rodent a chance here. He's got big dreams to become a great chef, even though his family is against it and there's the fact that ... ummm ... he's a rat.
But that doesn't seem to stop Remy, as he winds up in a Parisian restaurant with a famous foodie hero at the helm – Auguste Gusteau. Remy forms a partnership with a garbage boy named Linguini, who inadvertently discovers his new friend's talents. And from there the hijinks ensue as the culinary world of Paris is turned upside down.
Voice talents in "Ratatouille" include Patton Oswalt, Brian Dennehy, Brad Garrett, Janeane Garofalo, Ian Holm, Peter O'Toole and John Ratzenberger.
