Category: Edition 2021

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 – 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.

Director’s statement
“Luckily, Mark [Swift, the producer] got along right away. Mark is so honest, he’s down to earth and he’s very smart. It’s not just because of his English accent... he’s a really smart guy. We laughed a lot together. With Mark we started discussing the various elements of the story together with the writers Kevin and Dan Hageman. We had the father-daughter relationship, the continuation of the Guy and Eep story, and a number of elements from the previous versions that we loved and wanted to keep. We therefore looked for a formula that would allow us to join them together in a harmonious way."
