‘The Croods 2′ Is Put Back On DreamWorks’ Schedule For A 2020 Release | Film News
After a whirlwind of a journey, The Croods 2 will finally see the light of day in 2020, it has been announced by DreamWorks. It has been confirmed that the original cast will be returning to voice the film’s characters, though co-director Kirk DeMicco will not, as he is busy directing Sony Pictures Animation’s Vivo.
When The Croods was released in 2013, it managed to garner a decent gross of $587 million. It wasn’t a masterpiece, but it was simple and funny, and some were left wanting more. That wish seemed to be granted when a sequel was announced that same year, only for production to be pushed back, and back.
All hope died after Universal’s acquisition of DreamWorks in 2016, when production was cancelled and the project was taken off their schedule entirely. In fantastical fashion, The Croods 2 has risen from the ashes.
The Croods is set in a fictional prehistoric era; when a “Leader of the Hunt” is threatened by the arrival of a young revolutionary genius, his stubbornness drives his family away as he jeopardises their safety in favour of the traditional. As they embark on a dangerous journey in search of a new home, he learns to “live” and not just “survive“.
Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Cloris Leachman, Clark Duke, Chris Sanders, and Randy Thom voiced the first film, and will return for the sequel.
Plot details are currently unknown, and whether there’ll be another surprise cancellation before the projected September 18, 2020 release will remain a mystery. I’d like to think DreamWorks will stick to it this time.
