The Garfield Movie

The Garfield Movie is a 2024 American animated adventure comedy film based on the comic strip Garfield created by Jim Davis. Directed by Mark Dindal from a screenplay by Paul A. Kaplan, Mark Torgove, and David Reynolds, the film stars Chris Pratt as the voice of the titular character, alongside the voices of Samuel L. Jackson, Hannah Waddingham, Ving Rhames, Nicholas Hoult, Cecily Strong, Harvey Guillén, Brett Goldstein, Bowen Yang, and Snoop Dogg. In the film, Garfield is reunited with his long-lost father, a street cat named Vic, being forced into joining him on a high-stakes adventure.


Garfield is an overweight, lazy, orange cat who lives an average pampered lifestyle with his beagle dog best friend, Odie, and their owner, Jon Arbuckle. One night, while getting a midnight snack, Garfield and Odie are kidnapped by two dogs named Roland and Nolan, who take them to an abandoned mall as hostages. Garfield and Odie are soon rescued by Garfield's estranged father, Vic, whom Garfield resents for abandoning him in an alley when he was a kitten. The dogs' boss, Jinx, a vindictive Persian cat, arrives to exact revenge on Vic for leaving her behind during a milk heist at Lactose Farms before she was caught and imprisoned. She agrees to forgive Vic if he, Garfield, and Odie break into Lactose Farms to steal a large quantity of milk as extortion for her imprisonment, which they reluctantly agree, while Roland and Nolan watch over them.
