Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the live-action/animated film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail.
When Mr. Thomas McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson), inherits his uncle’s place, Peter realizes that the battle for control of the vegetable garden – and the heart of their next-door neighbor, Bea (Rose Byrne) – has only just begun. Peter enlists his sisters Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail, cousin Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, and other characters in the original tales.
Peter’s iconic blue jean jacket is very important to him and he doesn’t go anywhere without it. The classic denim jacket will be a hot trend this spring thanks to Peter and it should be a staple in your wardrobe. I seem to always take my blue jean jacket with me just like Peter, it’s perfect for any outfit and you can now find this classic in many variations. Wearing shorts and sneakers? Your jean jacket is perfect if you get a chill. It also looks adorable if you’re dressed in business casual or a skirt.
I actually wore it over my dress at the premiere and I felt very trendy.
Peter Rabbit doesn’t just bring back a classic story but Peter is bringing back the iconic blue jean jacket. The triplets had a classic fashion style in the original story but they bring a trendy updated look in the movie. The hung up their capes and dresses that went to the ground to change into cute trendy tops. Flopsy wears her crop red shirt with a black collar that ties together. Mopsy, the eldest sister, wears a more conservative yellow button up shirt, but to give it style she ties it at the bottom. Cottontail wears a light blue denim shirt with dark buttons but she leaves it open, but no worries for costume malfunctions, these are three classy bunnies!
This is truly a film for the entire family. It took me back to the memories of my mom reading me the book. You will see Beatrix Potter’s original paintings throughout the movie which gives it more integrity. The film also brings back the slapstick violence we all grew up laughing at. Remember Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny, or Tom and Jerry? Peter goes after McGregor but it takes a spin to teach us all about jealousy, what happens when you try to hurt someone, and how to fix it!
What’s your favorite outfit to wear with your blue jean jacket?
