■ ■ ■ ■ CG Animation The latest animated feature film from DreamWorks Animation sends a naïve but energetic family on a survival quest during prehistoric times Was a family road trip ever as prehistoric as the one forced upon Grug (Nicolas Cage) and his family in The Croods? Written and directed by Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders, the DreamWorks Animation comedy shakes up a world of fun and danger as the Crood family members discover life in a big, wide, wonderful (mostly) world. On the way, the accidental travelers discover that the most important changes are happening within the family. In addition to Cage, the film stars the voice talent of Emma Stone as Grug's adventurous daughter Eep, Catherine Keener as good wife Ugga, Clark Duke as the meathead son Thunk, Cloris Leachman as irascible mother-in-law Gran, and Ryan Reynolds as the charming, inventive Guy, who is not a member of the caveman family. Before The Croods, Kirk DeMicco was writer/director for Vanguard Animation's Space Chimps and the writer for Alligator Planet's Here Comes Peter Cottontail: The Movie, Alcon Entertainment's Racing Stripes, and Warner Bros.' Quest for Camelot. ©2013 DreamWorks Animation LLC. 32 March/April 2013 CGW0313-Croodspfin.indd 32 3/14/13 12:43 PM
