When Jonathan Swift wrote his novel in the 18th century, the world hadn’t yet been fully explored, so the idea of an island populated by tiny people didn’t seem that far-fetched.
In a modern, 3D family comedy take on the classic tale, Jack Black (KUNG FU PANDA, SCHOOL OF ROCK) is Lemuel Gulliver, a lowly mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the Bermuda Triangle, he goes there only to be transported to an undiscovered land, Lilliput.
In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is, at last, a bigger-than-life figure both in size and ego, especially after he starts telling tall tales, taking credit for his world’s greatest inventions, and placing himself at the centre of its most historic events. Gulliver’s position is enhanced even further when he leads his new friends in a daring battle against their long time enemies. But when Gulliver loses it all and puts the Lilliputians in peril, he must find a way to undo the damage.
Ultimately, Gulliver becomes a true giant among men only when he learns that it’s how big you are on the inside that counts.
