It has been seven years since Dreamworks’s The Croods debuted in theaters, and now the stone age family is coming back for a sequel. Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for The Croods: A New Age. Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, and Ryan Reynolds return to reprise their roles as the hunter-gathering tribe who survived all sorts of dangers and disasters. But nothing as prepared them for what they will face at the end of the world. Another family.
Now The Croods, Grug Crood (Cage), Ugga Crood (Catherine Keener), Eep (Emma Stone); as Guy (Ryan Reynolds), Thunk (Clark Duke), and Gran (Cloris Leachman) will be joined by The Bettermans, who like their surname are a slightly more evolved humans, who have better inventions to help improve their domesticated lives and irrigation systems to help with their farming. Peter Dinklage will voice Phil Betterman, with Leslie Mann voicing Hope Betterman, and Kelly Marie Tran as their daughter, Dawn.
However, things get a hostile as Crood’s hunter-gatherer lifestyle clashes with Betterman’s technological dependence. But they will have to find a way to put their differences aside when a new danger crosses over the wall to threaten all of their lives.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for The Croods: A New Age.
“The Croods have survived their fair share of dangers and disasters, from fanged prehistoric beasts to surviving the end of the world, but now they will face their biggest challenge of all: another family.
The Croods need a new place to live. So, the first prehistoric family sets off into the world in search of a safer place to call home. When they discover an idyllic walled-in paradise that meets all their needs, they think their problems are solved … except for one thing. Another family already lives there: the Bettermans.
The Bettermans (emphasis on the “better”)—with their elaborate tree house, amazing inventions and irrigated acres of fresh produce—are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. When they take the Croods in as the world’s first houseguests, it isn’t long before tensions escalate between the cave family and the modern family.
Just when all seems lost, a new threat will propel both families on an epic adventure outside the safety of the wall, one that will force them to embrace their differences, draw strength from each other and forge a future together.”
The Croods: A New Age opens in theaters on November 25, 2020.
