The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that 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. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.

The Stone Age meets the Modern Age as Neanderthal family The Croods attempt to acclimate themselves to the world outside their cave. The cautious leader of this caveman clan, Grug, is vocalized with intense hyper-vigilance by Oscar-winner Nicolas Cage, while his bodacious daughter Eep is played with gusto by Emma Stone. The boy that comes between father and daughter is called simply Guy, and he’s voiced by everyone’s favorite Green Lantern, Ryan Reynolds.
This unlikely trio shared the stage for a press conference in New York City where they talked about the hardships of a 2-to-3 hour workday and the occasional waterboarding tactics of animators.
Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Nicolas Cage are the trio of Hollywood A-listers who unite to voice the animated action in prehistoric family adventure The Croods.
Stone provides the voice of Eep, a teenage cave-girl with an over-protective father (Grug, voiced by Nicolas Cage) who hates change and invents the world’s first hug.
Ryan Reynolds is the light relief as a charismatic Neanderthal outsider called Guy, a character who hopes to lead the misfit family away from danger in their crumbling primal world.
Digital Spy caught up with the stars of the movie, alongside the movie’s directors Chris Sanders and Kirk Demicco, to discuss what the audience can expect from The Croods that hasn’t been seen before in animation.
“You’re going to see some visual wonderment,” admits Emma Stone.
“And you’re going to see a modern family in prehistoric times, which is a pretty great thing. And a lot of firsts.”
Cage added that the creatures in the film will be “exotic hybrids from a surrealist painting”.
The Croods opens in cinemas on Friday, March 22.
