In a week where we were given new trailers for Kung Fu Panda 3 and Ice Age 5: Collision Course, an animated movie trailer that stands out from the other two has surfaced, and from one you probably haven’t heard of. From the studio that brought us The Lego Movie, Warner Bros. welcomes us to Storks.
Kelsey Grammer (Toy Story 2) and Andy Samberg (Hotel Transylvania) lend their voices as storks who, instead of following the folklore of delivering babies, deliver packages that are ordered online. That is until a mishap involving Hunter causes the Baby Making Machine to activate, and must do the tradition baby drop as a consequence.
Produced by Warner Animation Group, comedy filmmaker Nicolas Stroller (known for directing Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, and Neighbors) is helming the film’s writing and direction with veteran Pixar animator Doug Sweetland sharing the directing job with Stroller. Warner Bros. Pictures will deliver the movie to US theatres on September 23rd, 2016.

While movies involving babies don’t partially appeal to me, the trailer got me quiet intrigued by the modernised concept of the folklore. Plus the solid animation, nice designs on the storks, and strong voice work from Kelsey Grammer makes this seem like an appealing movie, and something I’m now looking forward to. I wish Warner Bros. the best with this.
