The Croods: A New Age trailer introduces the Bettermans
Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation have released the official trailer for their long-delayed animated sequel The Croods: A New Age, featuring the return of our favorite cavemen family as they meet a new modern family called the Bettermans. Starring Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds, you can check out The Croods: A New Age trailer in the player below!
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 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.
In 2020, DreamWorks Animation invites you on an all-new adventure back in time with The Croods: A New Age. The sequel will see the return of the first film’s voice cast consists of Nicolas Cage (Mandy), Emma Stone (Maniac), Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2), Catherine Keener (Kidding), Cloris Leachman (American Gods) and Clark Duke (I’m Dying Up Here) as The Croods face their biggest threat since leaving the cave: another family.
New voice cast members include Star Wars alum Kelly Marie Tran as the only child of the Bettermans named Dawn with Leslie Mann (Blockers) and four-time Emmy winner Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) as Dawn’s parents. The sequel is directed by Joel Crawford with Mark Swift set to produce.
In the first film, the world was introduced to the first family of the prehistoric era, The Croods. The Academy Award-nominated comedy about a clan dealing with their changing world captivated global audiences, reminding us of the timeless importance of family… and just how little we’ve evolved.
The development of the film has been a long tormented road, with production initially set for two years after the release of the first film, but release dates continually were pushed back before DreamWorks announced its cancellation back in November 2016. Following Universal’s acquisition of the animation studio, it was announced production had been revived and is slated for a November 25 release date.
