The Grinch is equal parts mean and adorable in new trailer

The Grinch a true green meanie whose name alone has become synonymous for anyone who hates anything, and all because he’s mean, vile, crude and oh my god look how f**king adorable he was as a young lad! He has a little scarf on and he’s all poofy and he just wants to have Christmas, but he can’t have Christmas because he’s in an orphanage and apparently they don’t have Christmas in those! Phew. That was a lot to process. If you want to see what that was all about all you need to do is watch the new trailer for Illumination’s take on THE GRINCH starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

The story follows the classic Dr. Seuss tale as The Grinch attempts to steal Christmas away from the citizens of Who-ville. Along with his trusty dog Max, Grinch will try to pull off the heist of all heists, thus ridding the world of the joy that annoys him so much. This means wrangling some reindeer and stepping on crunchy snow so loud it echoes like the cracking of a volcano. 

Here is the official synopsis:

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food. Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.

Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?

THE GRINCH arrives November 9.
