If you, like me, spent much of your formative years watching Tom and Jerry cartoons, you might be keen to hear that a brand new feature length Tom and Jerry movie is now available on HBO Max.
But this isn’t necessarily the Tom and Jerry you remember. In the spirit of movies like Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Space Jam, this new flick places Tom and Jerry in the real world.
The movie features quite the live action cast — Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena and Ken Jeong all feature. Check out the trailer below for a look…

It might end up being worth a watch, especially because the movie is “free” for HBO Max subscribers. That’s right: In the spirit of recent releases like Mulan and Wonder Woman 1984, Tom and Jerry is available from day one to stream in your home.
How to watch
Tom and Jerry is available to watch on.
Right now, HBO Max costs $15 a month. When Disney’s live-action Mulan came to Disney Plus in September, even subscribers had to pay an extra $30 for Mulan (until Dec. 4, when it became free for all subscribers). Tom and Jerry doesn’t require any extra charges. Just tune in to HBO Max as you normally would, and you’ll be able to watch.

When will it be available?
Tom and Jerry went live on HBO Max as of 12:01 a.m. PT (3:01 a.m. ET), on Friday, February 26. Note, however, that it will only be available for about 31 days.
Is there a free trial?
Currently HBO Max doesn’t provide free trials. That stopped around the time it allowed users to stream Wonder Woman 1984 as part of its service.
But if you’re not currently a member of HBO Max you might consider signing up? We have a lengthy explainer on the service, which has a fat library of other movies and programs you could check out, including Lovecraft Country, Rick and Morty, the Studio Ghibli movies and more.
