Cavemen Somehow Still Aren’t Extinct at DreamWorks Animation, Studio Expected to Announce ‘The Croods 2’

The Croods

Considering that we live in a world that has multiple animated Smurfs movies, it’s not shocking that DreamWorks Animation is reportedly setting up a sequel to their own unexpected hit The Croods. The recent riff on cavemen, evolution, and the progression of historial eras (fun!) has banked a solid $385m for DreamWorks and Fox and, still better, it’s actually not a bad family film. Deadline Hollywood reports that the studio is “expected to announce” a sequel, and with Fox’s Cinema Con panel scheduled for Thursday, this week is certainly looking like a good time to do so. Evolution is cool again, you guys.

With voice talent from Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman, the animated adventure centers on the world’s first family unit as they attempt to survive a changing world around them. Filled with actually funny lines and classic comedic gags, fantastic animal creatures (including a bunch of things that look as if they jumped right off a Lisa Frank folder), and a sweet family-friendly message, we could all do far worse when it comes to kiddo movies, so a Croods sequel sounds rock solid to us.
