Jim Davis has written and ‘executively produced’ a Garfield movie entitled Garfield Gets Real which will be released on DVD on November 20th. The movie is CGI and the plot is described as:
Tired with his routine as a comic strip star, Garfield escapes the page and heads into the â??real world.â? While living the low-key life of a real house cat, he learns his comic will be cancelled if he doesnâ??t return before the newspaper goes to print, but no character who has escaped to the real world has ever returned. To complicate the situation, evil forces are blocking his path back to Cartoon World!
