In the new footage, Peter Rabbit reveals that the animals want their land back from the farmer. He says: "Who does he think he is?! This is our land… This is our ancestors' land! It's time to get our garden back." Domhnall Gleeson plays the mean farmer, while Rose Byrne plays Bea, an animal lover who lives just next door, and loves all of the animals, particularly rabbits!

 

Speaking about the film, James told People magazine: "Peter Rabbit is a timeless story with a classic character who is easy to love. Peter is the classic underdog – he's a rascal, he's mischievous, and he is fearless. He thinks he has power and ability beyond what's in him, as all children do." James is perhaps best known for his Carpool Karaoke segment on the Late, Late Show, which most recently starred Pink.

The pair instantly clicked together as they harmonised some of the singer's most popular tunes, including What About Us, Raise Your Glass and Get the Party Started. James also spoke about his partner Julia's pregnancy, saying: "Pregnancy's going well, obviously she's tired but she's pulling through it." The pair also spoke about how she was once asked out by Joey Fatone of NSYNC, explaining that she used to open for their tour. She said: "First tour ever! Opening from NSYNC. I was 19 and they were really sweet and Joey Fatone used to come into my dressing room every day and visit with us. He took me to Friendly's. As a friendly date! Not a date date. We were in the friend zone."
