Description by Wikipedia

Curious George is a 2006 American-German animated adventure comedy film based on the book series by H.A. and Margret Rey. It was directed by Matthew O'Callaghan, who replaced Jun Falkenstein. Ken Kaufman wrote the screenplay based on a story by him and Mike Werb. Ron Howard, David Kirschner, and John Shapiro produced. It was released on 10 February 2006 by Universal Studios. It stars Will Ferrell as Ted, the Man in the Yellow Hat, who embarks on a mission to restore the museum's reputation by finding a fabled statue, only to come across George accidentally. The film costars Drew Barrymore, Dick Van Dyke, David Cross, Eugene Levy, Joan Plowright, and Frank Welker as George.

The film had been under development at Imagine Entertainment for a long duration of period, dating back at least 1992, but it is possible that it was conceived years before. Although a traditionally animated film, it blends animation with computer-generated, 3D scenery and objects that take up 20% of its environment. The film was Universal's theatrical feature-length entirely animated film since Balto, released in 1995, and also Imagine's first animated film. It features a musical score by Heitor Pereira, with songs produced by the musician Jack Johnson.

The film grossed $69.8 million from a $50 million budget and has a 69% approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes, which calls it "a bright, sweet, faithful adaptation".
