Sony debuts new poster and trailer for Harold and the Purple Crayon

In 2001 author Crockett Johnson’s Harold series was turned into an animated series focused on the first book Harold and the Purple Crayon. Now the popular beloved children’s book is getting the live action treatment with a new feature film aptly titled Harold and the Purple Crayon starring Zachary Levi, Lil Rel Howery, Benjamin Bottani, Jemaine Clement, Tanya Reynolds with Alfred Molina and Zooey Deschanel from Rio and Ice Age franchise director Carlos Saldanha. 

Harold and the Purple Crayon follows adventurous Harold who can make anything come to life simply by drawing it inside of his book. After he grows up and draws himself off the book’s pages and into the physical world, Harold finds he has a lot to learn about real life—and that his trusty purple crayon may set off more hilarious hijinks than he thought possible. When the power of unlimited imagination falls into the wrong hands, it will take all of Harold and his friends’ creativity to save both the real world and his own. 

While you will have to wait until August 2nd to see the film in theaters, you can check out the new poster and new trailer here now from Sony.
