First look: The Willoughbys

Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming animated film, The Willoughbys.

The animated adventure follows the Willoughby children who long for a normal, loving family and feel discarded by the “insidious grownups” that are their parents.

The kids decide to craft a dangerous adventure that’ll see their parents embark on a trip to die for — literally — and thereby free them from the loveless life they share with them. Before they know it, the kids are off on a high-flying, candy-coloured (at times) expedition of their own with an all-cooking, all-cleaning, all-singing nanny in tow.

The film is on the children’s book of the same name by Lois Lowry and written for the screen by Mark Stanleigh and Kris Pearn (who also directs),

The voice cast includes Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Alessia Cara, Terry Crews, Martin Short, Jane Krakowski, Séan Cullen, and Ricky Gervais.

The Willoughbys will be available on Netflix from 22nd April.
