Studio green lights sequel.

DreamWorks Animation has announced that it has started development on a sequel to the prehistoric comedy adventure ‘The Croods.’

Written and directed by Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders, ‘The Croods’ follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Travelling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.

DeMicco and Sanders are set to return for the follow-up with voice stars Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman all in talks to return.

Released back in March, the animated adventure proved to be a big hit for the studio, taking in near to €300 million at the global box office.
