Hey kids, do you like gnome-related puns and fart jokes? You do? Well then, you may be interested to learn that a trailer has arrived for SHERLOCK GNOMES, the long-in-the-works sequel to the Annie Award-nominated animated film GNOMEO & JULIET (2011).

Blige and Johnny Depp, SHERLOCK GNOMES finds both Gnomeo and Juliet arrived in the English capital, with their garden party event quickly arriving in the coming Spring. Unfortunately, family members and friends of the pointy-hatted couple turn up missing. With all of their best-laid-plans turned to mulch, Gnomeo (James McAvoy) and Juliet (Emily Blunt) decide to hire the storied detective Sherlock Gnomes (Johnny Depp) to help solve the case.

Upon accepting their case, Gnomes calls upon his sworn protector and friend, Watson Chiwetel Ejiofor) for aid. Together, the group go on a wild adventure filled with danger,dancing, and of course, fart jokes, in an effort to win the day and still throw one hell of a rager, once all is said and done.
