The excitement for The Garfield Movie is building by the day. While the Chris Pratt movie has released in a few countries already, it is set to release in India on the 17th of May, 2024.

The Garfield Movie Team Have Decided To Release Their Movie Only In 3D To Curb Piracy

Sony Pictures Entertainment India has announced the first-ever exclusive 3D only release in its first week for their new film The Garfield Movie, as a strategic move to combat piracy in India. This decision has been made to curb piracy as 3D version will look blurred on camera and it will consequently promote great viewing experience for everyone in 3D.

The Anticipation For The Garfield Movie Is High

The Garfield Movie is keenly anticipated by Indian moviegoers. The character of Garfield is often referred in pop-culture, and of course Chris Pratt's voiceover will add more authority to the new Garfield movie. Sony India has also roped-in Varun Sharma to do the Hindi voiceover of Garfield and his familiarity will only help the film's prospects.
