New Norm Of The North Trailer Couldn’t Be More Adorable

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for the upcoming animated film, Norm Of The North.

A polar bear of many words, Norm’s greatest gripe is simple: there is no room for tourists in the Arctic. But when a maniacal developer threatens to build luxury condos in his own backyard, Norm does what all normal polar bears would do…he heads to New York City to stop it.

With a cast of ragtag lemmings at his side, Norm takes on the big apple, big business and a big identity crisis to save the day.

Directed by Trevor Wall, the movie features the voices of Rob Schneider, Heather Graham, Ken Jeong, Gabriel Iglesias, Loretta Devine, Michael McElhatton, Colm Meaney, and Bill Nighy.

Wall won a Daytime Emmy for “Individual Achievement in Animation” for his storyboard work in Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks, in 2007.
