Video: Calvin and Hobbes Are All Grown Up in Movie Trailer Spoof
Have you ever wondered what would happen if your childhood fantasies stayed with you throughout adulthood? If the monsters under your bed never left; the imaginary friends grew up alongside you and became real?
Well, a group of writers and filmmakers envisioned a world just like that, for a young man named Calvin and his stuffed tiger Hobbes. The creators, a team called Gritty Reboots, released a trailer for a fake movie wherein Calvin is a young adult, and his imagination — which once served as his best friend — has created a world that he can't escape.
On their YouTube page, they call the video a "fan-made trailer devoted to our favorite comic strip," noting that they won't be monetizing it out of respect for Bill Watterson, the strip's creator.
Gritty Reboots has also made videos spoofing movies of Pokeman Snap and Harvest Moon, and claims on their Twitter that they'll release new videos every two weeks.
Here's the Calvin and Hobbes trailer, in all its glory:
