DreamWorks 2013 Animation Sneak Peek!

Dec 04, 2012

By: Lynn Barker

A prehistoric family caveman adventure starring the voice of Emma Stone, a snail who wants to be a street racer and a mega-smart dog… who adopts a boy. These are the stories of The Croods, Turbo and Mr. Peabody and Sherman, fun animated films hitting screens next year from DreamWorks and 20th Century Fox.

On the 20th Century Fox studio lot in L.A., Kidzworld got to see a preview of these colorful movies and we’ve gotta say, all of them look original, teen/kid and family-friendly and just plain funny, heart-felt and entertaining.

Emma Stone spoke to us via a filmed message saying how stoked she was to have voiced cavegirl Eep in The Croods due out March 22nd, 2013. As Emma explained, Eep is a typical teen in that she is tired of her over-protective dad Grug (Nicolas Cage) keeping her in the family cave and warning her against experiencing anything new.  When she meets and falls for caveboy Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who warns her that the world, as they know it, is ending and a bad earthquake seems to prove his point, the family has to find a new home. Their trek through a wild new territory changes them forever.  We were impressed not only with the voice talent in the movie but the many very strange animals that threaten or befriend the family. This is going to be fun!

 

Coming next summer (July 19th) is Turbo, a movie about a snail with a need for speed! Little Turbo (Ryan Reynolds..he gets around) is obsessed with racing despite warnings from his conservative, way slower bro (voiced by Paul Giamatti). When a crazy accident gives Turbo super speed, he meets other snail racers, runs slime rings around them then learns that they are special as well. With his new crew, can Turbo go on to win on the big racing circuit?  This one is full of trendy trash talking, fun Fast and The Furious-style street racing and, come on, there is just something hilarious about a snail with a speedster dream. Very, very cute.

Finishing off 2013 is Mr. Peabody and Sherman, a very funny, time-traveling story about a super smart dog who adopts a boy and then invents a time machine to take him back to historical moments so that he’ll learn truth rather than myth.  This duo is a part of my childhood. They were featured on “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle”, a very hip, smart and funny TV show about a talking flying squirrel and a large talking moose. Ask your parents and grandparents.  The new adventure is modernized and looks great but still has the clever comments and heart of the original…. plus time trips to ancient Egypt, the French Revolution and more. Way worth a trip to the cineplex.

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
