Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will release The Croods: A New Age through digital retailers Feb. 9, followed by a Blu-ray Disc, DVD and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc release Feb. 23.
The DreamWorks Animation film, a sequel to 2013’s The Croods, finds the first prehistoric family facing a new challenge when they encounter a walled-in paradise created by the sophisticated Betterman family. As they try to coexist, the differences between the two families escalate into a full-blown feud, until a new threat forces them to work together.
The voice cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Peter Dinklage, Kelly Marie Tran and Leslie Mann.
The film earned $43.9 million at the domestic box office.
The disc and digital versions (depending on retailer) will include the exclusive short films Dear Diary: World’s First Pranks and Family Movie Night: Little Red Bronana Bread.
Other bonus materials include filmmaker commentary, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and several behind-the-scenes featurettes:
- “The Croods’ Family Album” — A look at the actors who voice the Croods and Bettermans;
- “The Evolution Of …” — A discussion about growing the franchise with the cast and filmmakers;
- “How to Draw: Caveman Style” — a DreamWorks illustrator demonstrates how to draw one of the characters;
- “Famileaf Album” — Fans can learn to create their own unique family album using real leaves or green construction paper for pages, and string (or dental floss) to hold it all together;
