It’s official – The Croods 2 has been cancelled. And while this news saddens me quite a bit, in the end, I’m choosing not to be angry.
For one thing, WE STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL CROODS! It’s a great movie about family and love and the stupid emotions that occasionally threaten both. It’s funny and heartwarming and – if you’re not dead inside – makes you tear up every time you watch it! That in itself is amazing, and I am grateful to Chris Sanders, Kirk DeMicco and everyone else at DreamWorks who made the film.
For another thing, CHRIS SANDERS IS NOW FREE TO CREATE A NEW CAST OF QUIRKY AND LOVABLE CARTOON CHARACTERS! This is the guy who co-wrote and directed Lilo & Stitch (2002), How To Train Your Dragon (2010) and The Croods (2012). I am ready for another one of his hilarious and heartbreaking odes to the fragility of family!
