Remember when the Sonic the Hedgehog movie freaked people out, due to the way that Sonic was animated? So much so, that the animators completely changed his look? Well, ever since Paramount Studios dropped their trailer for the upcoming live-action movie Clifford the Big Red Dog, folks have been similarly freaked out.
People seem to be more frightened of the furry beast, giving too much of an accurate representation of what Clifford would be like in the real world.
The plot centers around middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) who meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy. She never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment. While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on an adventure and, of course, hijinks ensue.
Watch the trailer below:
Twitter users had fun with the terrifying trailer:

Another user pointed out the usage of BTS’ song “Dynamite” during the trailer:

Based on his dimensions alone, Clifford the Big Red Dog appears to be a long term sequel to Chernobyl. pic.twitter.com/pzyY2SWMmE— Paul Myers (@pulmyears) June 30, 2021
