'Gnomeo and Juliet' Trailer Looks as Good as Anything Based Entirely on a Pun Would

Can you believe it's been over two years since we were promised a "loose and edgy adaptation" of Romeo and Juliet as told through lawn gnomes and pop culture references? I have no idea how we managed to wait so patiently, but a trailer has finally arrived, offering to take audiences to a world that blends the Shakespeare play, Toy Story, Travelocity commercials, and an Elton John Best Of CD into one horrible concoction that I'm guessing probably won't end as tragically as the Romeo and Juliet you vaguely remember from high school. Enjoy:

Phew, good thing the director of Shrek 2 managed to work in shoving a mushroom-shaped phallus into someone's mouth to the character's delight. I was worried things wouldn't get unnecessarily sexual.
