The Tale of Despereaux brings Kate DiCamillo's beloved children's book to the big screen for the very first time. This wondrous tale revolves around three unlikely heroes: A misfit mouse who prefers reading books to eating them, an unhappy rat who schemes to leave the darkness of the dungeon, and a bumbling servant girl with cauliflower ears. Their fates become intertwined with that of the castle's princess, and it is Despereaux who will save them all. We recently met up with the voice cast behind this exciting adventure, as well as the author behind the original novel. To watch our exclusive featurette with Matthew Broderick, Emma Watson, Sigourney Weaver, and Kate DiCamillo, click on the video clip below:

The Tale of Despereaux opens December 19th in theaters across the country.
