DreamWorks Plans The Croods 2
The cave family will be back

The Croods

After the seemingly disappointing box office figures (and resulting financial write-off) of the actually-decent Rise Of The Guardians, there was much relieved wiping of brows at DreamWorks Animation recently when caveman family comedy The Croods proved a hit. So how is the company responsible for four Shreks, three Madagascars, three Kung Fu Pandas, at least two How To Train Your Dragons responding? By ordering up a sequel, of course! The clue was in the list of follow-ups we just mentioned.

The first film’s writing/directing team Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders are planning to return, but the details beyond that are still a mystery. It doesn’t even have a release date yet, which is a refreshing change given how studios work these days.

Croods found Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman as a family in a weird, fictional pre-historic period where evolution has created a load of hybrid creatures and the Earth is undergoing massive seismic shifts.

When their safe cave is destroyed, Grug (Cage) and his family must venture out on a quest to find a new home. They meet Guy (Ryan Reynolds) a more developed human who introduces them to a raft of new ideas. The sequel will no doubt find them facing fresh challenges, and we’d expect the whole original cast to return.

PROVED TO BE A HIT!!!
Yes Empire it was a HIT yet your review said otherwise. Do you concede your review was inaccurate then? Maybe for the sequel you should have a reviewer that actually enjoys a no-brainer family movie :) More
