Move over, Remy — there’s a new CG rodent in town. For The Tale of Despereaux, his first script since 2003’s Seabiscuit, writer-producer Gary Ross adapted the ‘03 kids’ book about Despereaux, a brainy mouse (voiced by Broderick) who is banished from Mouseworld when he befriends a kindly human princess played by Emma Watson.
