Everyone’s favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear brings his meal-mooching ways to movies in this live action/CG-animated adventure. Starring Dan Aykroyd as the voice of Jellystone Park’s famed troublemaker Yogi Bear and Justin Timberlake as the voice of Yogi’s faithful pal Boo Boo.

Jellystone has been losing business, so conniving Mayor Brown has decided to shut it down and sell the park’s land for profit. Faced with the loss of his home - not to mention access to plenty of pic-a-nic baskets, Yogi must prove he really is “smarter than the average bear” as he and Boo Boo join forces with Ranger Smith to find a way to save his beloved park from closing forever. Also featuring the voice talents of Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, TJ Miller and Andrew Daly in this wonderful new imagining of Hanna-Barbera’s classic cartoon.
