Watch: Trailer For Animated Prehistoric Comedy 'The Croods' Voiced By Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone & More

“Never leave the cave!” Voiced by Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman, DreamWorks Animations‘ “The Croods” is the company’s big animated family comedy of 2013. Directed by Chris Sanders (the filmmaker behind “How to Train Your Dragon” and the illustrator who created “Lilo & Stitch“) and Kirk DeMicco (writer of “Space Chimps” and the upcoming “Hong Kong Phooey” adaptation), one can only assume that if the film takes off like they hope, franchise is in the cards (and when isn’t it for the lucrative field of animation?).

Here’s the synopsis:

The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.

“The Croods” leave the cave on March 22nd, 2013. Watch the trailer — with its inspirational and dramatic tones more focused on wonder and awe then comedy — below. [Apple]

This is one of the most wonderful animated movies I have seen and I just loved it.


It looks interesting but I just can't get past Nicolas Cage voicing the father. It doesn't feel right. That voice doesn't sound like it belongs to that body. Oh well… it might work in the context of the film.


The story's quite changed from the time when the film was called Crood Awakening and Aardman was involved. Back then it was about a prehistoric tribe's encounter with a caveman who brought revolutionary new inventions like fire.
