Back in December, Warner Bros. has unleashed the first teaser trailer for their animated comedy adventure Storks, shortly after the first photo surfaced of Hunter, voiced by Kelsey Grammer. This comedy will put a new spin on these Storks, who have a much different purpose in life than their ancestors. While it isn’t known when we’ll see the next full trailer, the studio delivered a 60-second sneak peek of Storks during the Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon last night.
Storks deliver babies… or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore.com. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.
Back in April, Warner Bros. gave their upcoming family adventure Storks a September 23, 2016 release date. Since we still have several months left until this movie hits the big screen, there is still plenty of time for new trailers and clips to debut. The supporting voice cast is rounded out by Andy Samberg, Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Nick Stoller wrote the screenplay and directs alongside Doug Sweetland.
The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are executive producing alongside Glenn Ficarra, John Requa and Jared Stern. Storks will be the first feature film developed under the new Warner Animation Group, along with the first foray into animation for filmmaker Nick Stoller. He has previously directed live-action comedy movies such as Neighbors, The Five-Year Engagement and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Storks will be going up against 20th Century Fox’s A Cure for Wellness, Sony’s remake of The Magnificent Seven and an untitled Sony Pictures Animation project this September. Take a look at the new footage from Storks below, and let us know what you think. Will you be flying to your local theater to check out Storks next fall?
