THE CROODS Sequel Greenlit and My Review of the Movie


With the success of The Croods, DreamWorks Animation has confirmed that there will be a sequel for it.  This should come as no surprise to anyone, really, and yet, there are viewers that didn’t think the movie warranted it.

Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco, who wrote and directed the film, are on board to perform the same duties on the sequel.

The voice cast, including Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman, are expected to be back as well.

I went into the 3D theater expecting something fun and colorful and exciting, and I was not disappointed.  The story of a girl who wishes to do more than just live in a cave with her family is quite simplistic, but that’s not to say that it’s boring.  That’s the difference.  It is a family movie, after all, and all too often, there are many animated movies that tend to give something to the adults to laugh about while essentially ignoring the thought that many children will not understand what was said.

In this movie, I believe that everything said and done could be understood by every viewer watching and not only that, the digital animation really took careful consideration in creating such a wonderfully lively world.  The animators spent more than a regular amount of time in giving the movie life and it shows.

And throughout all that color and water and fire and smoke, the story still stayed true and held up pretty well.  I would definitely like to see more of the world of The Croods, so I am looking forward to doing so as soon as they’re able.
