This afternoon at CinemaCon, DreamWorks Animation announced that they have greenlit a sequel to The Croods. Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders will return to write and direct, and the studio is in negotiations with voice cast. No release date has been set.
The Croods has been a box office success for DreamWorks, grossing $386.6 million worldwide since its release on March 22, and the studio clearly wants to capitalize on this by positioning it as a potential franchise.
Let's just hope the sequel has a little more depth than the original.
