Please Don’t Destroy , the popular comedy trio that gained fame on the internet before being picked up by Saturday Night Live to create the show’s digital shorts, is set to release their debut film on Universal’s sister streamer Peacock.
The untitled film, written by Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy, was initially slated for a theatrical release in August but will now premiere on Nov. 17 on Peacock.
The movie centers on three childhood friends who live and work together and are questioning where their lives are headed. Feeling completely out of their element, they embark on a journey to find a lost treasure rumored to be buried in their local mountains.
Paul Briganti, a director on SNL, helmed the movie, which stars Conan O’Brien, Bowen Yang, Meg Stalter, X Mayo, Nichole Sakura, Cedric Yarbrough, and Sunita Mani, alongside the three leads.
Judd Apatow produced the film under his Apatow Productions banner, along with Jimmy Miller for Mosaic. Marshall, Higgins, and Herlihy served as executive producers, alongside Josh Church, M. Riley, Sam Hansen, and Michael Sledd.

The decision to move the Please Don’t Destroy project to Peacock is unclear. However, it has resulted in a reshuffling of Universal’s release schedule, with the R-rated dog comedy Strays taking over the August 18 date.
Strays, which was previously set to open opposite Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, will now debut on the same day as the DC superhero movie Blue Beetle.
The upcoming film marks the feature debut for Please Don’t Destroy, who have previously worked with high-profile talent such as Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Rami Malek, and Ana de Armas while creating digital shorts for SNL.
