We received a copy of The Croods: A New Age for review. All opinions are my own.
Valentine’s Day is just a few days away so we were excited to get a surprise package in the mail from our friend Eep! It came packed with everything we needed to decorate Croods-themed Valentine’s Day cards such as colorful heart-shaped stickers, red and pink gel pens, and heart-shaped candy.
You can print out your own The Croods: A New Age Valentine’s day cards here to make with your kiddos.
My kids spent the morning decorating cards and envelopes to get them ready to mail to friends and family. They had a great time. With the cards done, they were ready for a fun movie night. We got a digital code with our surprise package and the kids couldn’t wait to watch The Croods: A New Age again.
We have shared a full review of The Croods: A New Age here that you can read. The movie is so funny and I loved how it picks up at the end of the first The Croods movie. The new characters that are introduced are hilarious and I love the modern references and humor. This is a great family film that everyone will enjoy.
About The Croods: 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 features the voice talent of returning stars Nicolas Cage as Grug Crood, Catherine Keener as Ugga Crood, Emma Stone as their daughter, Eep; Ryan Reynolds as Eep’s boyfriend, Guy; Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine) as Thunk and Cloris Leachman as Gran. They’re joined by new stars Peter Dinklage (HBO’s Game of Thrones) as Phil Betterman, Leslie Mann (Blockers) as Hope Betterman, and Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: Episode VIII-The Last Jedi) as their daughter, Dawn.
The film is directed by Joel Crawford, who has worked on multiple DreamWorks Animation films, including Trolls and the Kung Fu Panda franchise, and is produced by Mark Swift (Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted).
