The Wild Life Trailer Does Robinson Crusoe with Talking Animals

Summit Entertainment releases the animated The Wild Life trailer

Summit Entertainment has debuted a first look at their animated film The Wild Life (formally known as “Robinson Crusoe”), which is an animal-centric twist on the classic Daniel Defoe adventure story. Check out The Wild Life trailer below, along with photos from the film in the gallery.

From the over-exuberant parrot Tuesday to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise. Then Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering new “creature.” No matter their differences, castaway human and quirky animals embark on an hilarious new adventure, building the island’s first tree-house and surviving together. But when two conniving members of the animal kingdom — the savage cats Mal & May – pounce into a battle for control of the island, Crusoe and his animal posse must uncover the true power of friendship against all odds (even savage cats).

Directed by Vincent Kesteloot and Ben Stassen (A Turtle’s Tale 2: Sammy’s Escape from Paradise) from a screenplay by Lee Christopher, Domonic Paris and Graham Welldon, The Wild Life will swing into theaters on September 9, 2016.
