Bunyan and Babe (also known as Bunyan and Babe 3D) is an upcoming live-action/animated film set for release in 2011. It is directed by Jim Rygiel and Tony Bancroft and features the voices of John Goodman as Paul Bunyan and Jeff Foxworthy as Babe the Blue Ox.[1]



Loosely based on the folklore of Paul Bunyan (John Goodman), two children exiled on their grandfather's farm in Minnesota discover a lair where Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox (Jeff Foxworthy) have resided since their disappearance from the Dead Forest. The story sees Bunyan and Babe teaming with the two kids to stop an evil land developer from destroying a town.[2]


12 year old Travis Barclay and his little sister Whitney are sent begrudgingly on a summer trip to visit their grandparents’ farm in Delbert County. A greedy land developer, Norm Blandsford, has been buying up the little country town, running the hard working residents off their land.  After Travis has a run-in with one of Blandsford's men, he is chased into the forest where he stumbles upon a magic portal to the hidden world where Paul Bunyan lives.  Paul has been in self-imposed exile for 100 years, ever since the advent of machines made his role in society obsolete and left him feeling of little value to the new world.  Paul, reluctantly, escorts Travis back to the farm. But upon returning,Paul witnesses Blandsford’s sinister plan.  Suddenly filled by a long-forgotten sense of purpose, Bunyan and Babe, the blue ox, get wrapped up in a brand new adventure and together with the help of their new friends, Travis and Whitney, they save the town. Together they learn firsthand that you don't have to be big to do big things.
