After releasing the news that The Croods 2 is a movie that will be happening, Dreamworks called for the voice actors of the first movie to reprise their roles for the sequel. Those who have signed thus far include Emma Stone as Eep, Ryan Reynolds as Guy, and Nicolas Cage as Thug.  Though some were afraid that being released around the time Monster’s University and Despicable Me 2, it made over 585$ million dollars in the box office. So, as per usual with these franchises, it is getting a sequel.

If you are unfamiliar with The Croods, here is a short synopsis from the movie’s wikipedia page found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Croods

 The film is set in a fictional prehistoric Pliocene era known as The Croodaceous, a period which contains fantastical creatures, when a man’s position as a “Leader of the Hunt” is threatened by the arrival of a prehistoric genius who comes up with revolutionary new inventions, like fire, as they trek through a dangerous but exotic land in search of a new home.

Personally, I really enjoyed this movie and it was one of my favorites from 2013. It thought it was colorful, emotional, and above all Chris Sanders is one of my favorite directors and animators in the industry. You will probably hear me talk about him a lot.
