Forgot which one first set a barefoot on the new continent, maybe it was Garfield in 2004. Since then, a hunch of other movies copied this new style, to put a talking pet, sometimes maybe not pet but just talking animals, under the spotlight to serve as the leading characters, whereas the supporting roles who, more often than not, were the closest friends or masters of these talking creatures. Here are a lot of examples, just to name a few, Alice in Wonderland, The Smurfs, Alvin and the chipmunks series, etc. But, never one called a toy into real life, cartoons are not counted in this category, until Ted was premiered.
Ted, directed, co-produced and co-written by Seth MacFarlane, was a 2012 American comedy movie. It starred Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Seth MacFarlane as leading characters. Produced by Media Rights Capital and distributed by Universal Pictures, the movie was originally released on June 29, 2012. And as it turned out, it met huge critical and commercial success, becoming the 10th highest-grossing film of the year.
Just yesterday, Ted Blu-ray Combo Pack was released. Aside from a Blu-ray and a DVD version, this pack also included a Digital Copy of the movie, or on demand version as you may address to, compatible with all Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod devices, as well as Android smartphones.
