the nut job movie

Mark your calendars for January 17th!  There's an adorable new animated movie coming our way featuring the voices of Katherine Heigl, Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Liam Neeson and Gabriel Iglesias in The Nut Job

The movie's synopsis, "Surly, a curmudgeon, independent squirrel is banished from his park and forced to survive in the city. Lucky for him, he stumbles on the one thing that may be able to save his life, and the rest of park community, as they gear up for winter: Maury's Nut Store. "

Katherine shared the photo above on Twitter today, writing "That's one wide-eyed looking squirrel! My character Andie in The Nut Job looks on nervously."  it looks like this may be Katherine's first time voicing an animated character.

Check out the trailer below and tell us – will you be heading to the theater for this one?
