Today, Disney dropped an action-packed, goofy trailer for what’s sure to be a hilarious reboot. Cheaper by the Dozen is coming back with a vengeance and will be released exclusively to Disney+ on March 18. The teaser shows viewers some new looks at everyone’s favorite giant family, the Bakers.
The new trailer introduces us to Zoey (Gabrielle Union) and Paul (Zach Braff), the proud parents of ten rambunctious kids. The kids take front and center in the trailer, as well as in their parents’ lives. We get a taste of Zoey’s personal life and love for her kids while she visits a spa with her friends and see one of the kiddos, who is always living on the edge, zoom through the house on a scooter only to fly face-first into a closed-door—don’t worry, he’s alright! The silly antics of Paul are also featured in the teaser as he becomes injured while doing a split at what looks to be a halftime show during one of the kids’ school sporting events. Ever the embarrassing parent, Paul’s son DJ asks him to tone it down and to just be a normal dad. With all the comedy smashed into the short peek, the revamp of the 2003 film looks like it will be able to hold rank with the Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt led original, which was technically a spinoff of the 1950 film of the same name.
Starring alongside Union and Braff to make up the rest of the Baker household will be Journee Brown, Kylie Rogers, Andrew Robinson, Caylee Blosensky, aryan simhadri, Leo A. Perry, Mykal-Michelle Harris, Christian Cote, sebastian coteand Luke Prael with an ensemble cast of Erika Christensen, Brittany Daniel, Cynthia Danieland Rum Funches.
