The first trailer and poster for the upcoming live-action/CGI cartoon adaptation Yogi Bear has shown up online. The movie will join Garfield, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Marmaduke, Scooby-Doo, and the upcoming release of The Smurfs as similar cartoon makeover movies we’ve seen made.
Yogi Bear features the voices of Dan Aykroyd as Yogi and Justin Timberlake as Boo-Boo. The live-action roles will be filled with Anna Faris as Rachel, Tom Cavanagh (TV’s Ed) as Ranger Smith, and Cloverfield‘s T.J. Miller as Ranger Jones.

The movie tells the story of Jellystone National Park and its two most famed residents, Yogi Bear and his sidekick, Boo Boo. The park has been losing a lot of business, causing the Mayor to decide to close it forever and sell the land. This forces Yogi to team up with the Park Rangers and try and save the place that they love.
Yogi Bear will be released this upcoming holiday season on December 17, 2010.
