Universal Pictures has shared the first trailer for The Croods: A New Age, which is a sequel to the 2013 animated film The Croods. The film comes from DreamWorks Animation, and it looks like a fun and amusing sequel that fans of the original film will enjoy!
The Croods: A New Age features the voice talent of returning stars Nicolas Cage as Grug Crood, Catherine Keener as Ugga Crood, Emma Stone as their daughter, Eep; Ryan Reynolds as Eep’s boyfriend, Guy; Clark Duke as Thunk and Cloris Leachman as Gran. They’re joined by Peter Dinklage as Phil Betterman, Leslie Mann as Hope Betterman, and Kelly Marie Tran as their daughter, Dawn.
Here’s the synopsis:
The Croods need a new place to live. So, the first prehistoric family sets off into the world in search of a safer place to call home. When they discover an idyllic walled-in paradise that meets all their needs, they think their problems are solved … except for one thing. Another family already lives there: the Bettermans. The Bettermans (emphasis on the “better”)—with their elaborate tree house, amazing inventions and irrigated acres of fresh produce—are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. When they take the Croods in as the world’s first houseguests, it isn’t long before tensions escalate between the cave family and the modern family. Just when all seems lost, a new threat will propel both families on an epic adventure outside the safety of the wall, one that will force them to embrace their differences, draw strength from each other and forge a future together.
The Croods 2: A New Age was directed by animation filmmaker Joel Crawford, who is making his directorial debut with this film. The screenplay is written by Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman, and the film will be released in theaters starting November 25th.
