Disney releases The Odd Life of Timothy Green trailer and poster

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

Ever pictured Australia’s Joel Edgerton as a Disney dad and married to Jennifer Garner? That is the foundation of this quirky trailer that has us very intrigued.

Synopsis: Academy Award®–nominated director/writer Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?) brings enchantment to the screen with The Odd Life of Timothy Green, an inspiring, magical story about a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim—and their small town of Stanleyville—learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.

This looks like it could be a return to the old-school charms of live-action Disney films, and has completely snuck in under our radar. Here’s the poster as well:
