The story revolves around a samurai cat who fights to save a town from becoming the litter box of a nefarious feline warlord, re-envisioning Mel Brooks’s seminal film, ‘Blazing Saddles.’ Also starring Mel Brooks himself, as well as George Takei, Aasif Mandvi, Gabriel Iglesias, Djimon Hounsou, Michelle Yeoh, Cathy Shim, and Kylie Kuioka.

Directed by Mark Koetsier (‘The Grinch, ’ ‘Big Hero 6, ’ ‘Madagascar: Escape to Africa’) and Rob Minkoff (‘The Lion King, ’ ‘Mr Peabody & Sherman, ’ ‘Stuart Little’), and from the mind of comedy genius Mel Brooks, this Japanese-inspired animated comedy teaches kids and adults alike that embracing diversity is what truly makes you a hero.
