Well, file this under ‘U’ for unexpected, unbelievable, and utterly awesome. One of our very, very favorite films from the last decade is, hands down, The Croods. What Dreamworks and team did was deliver something so inventive, so imaginative, and so darn fun, I can’t understand why it hasn’t captured more of an audience. We raved about it in 2013 (check out our glowing review here) and I’ve loved it every single time I’ve seen it since. And now we have a sequel!!
There’s something so incredibly charming about this family dynamic (including the stellar cast who are all back for this sequel) set against the simply gorgeous pre-hysterial narrative and wondrous landscape. It just works. So while most people are calling 2020 a wash, we now have one thing about it to enjoy, and I can’t wait to see this follow up.
Behold, the first trailer for The Croods: A New Age!
The Croods have survived their fair share of dangers and disasters, from fanged prehistoric beasts to surviving the end of the world, but now they will face their biggest challenge of all: another family.
The Croods: A New Age features the voice talent of returning stars Nicolas Cage, Catherine Keener, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman. They’re joined by new stars Peter Dinklage, Leslie Mann and Kelly Marie Tran.
The film is directed by Joel Crawford and is set for release in theaters this Fall on November 25.
