Tom & Jerry (marketed as Tom & Jerry: The Movie) is a 2021 American live-action/computer-animated slapstick comedy film based on the cartoon characters and animated theatrical short film series of the same name created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, produced by the Warner Animation Group and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film is directed (and executive produced) by Tim Story and written by Kevin Costello.The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Colin Jost, Rob Delaney, and Ken Jeong in live-action roles. Nicky Jam, Bobby Cannavale, and Lil Rel Howery also feature in voice roles, while the titular characters are voiced by William Hanna, Mel Blanc and June Foray, via archival recordings, alongside Frank Welker.

Originally intended as a live-action/computer-animated film in 2009, the film languished in development hell, with plans eventually shifting to producing an entirely animated film, in the same vein as the original theatrical shorts, in 2015. The film again became a live-action/animated hybrid, using the shorts as inspiration, in 2018, with filming beginning in 2019.

Tom & Jerry was theatrically released by Warner Bros. Pictures in the United States on February 26, 2021, with a one-month simultaneous streaming release on HBO Max. It is the first theatrically released film starring the characters since 1992's Tom and Jerry: The Movie. It has grossed $5 million worldwide against a $50 million production budget.
