2013’s DreamWorks Animation release The Croods was a big hit for the studio, grossing $587.2m globally on a $135m budget. It was the first out of the gate under their new home over at 20th Century Fox and what a way to kick it off. A sequel had been on the slate for a while now with an original release date scheduled for 2017 then pushed back to 2018.
Well, DreamWorks Animation (DWA) is about to shift home again to Universal Pictures and, along with the shift, the planned sequel has been axed. The production itself, which DWA had been working on for the past 3.5 years, has had troubling time in securing the story and when the studio was sold to Comcast (the parent company of Universal Pictures) the decision was made to scrap the film.
DreamWorks Animation has The Boss Baby, Larrakins, and Captain Underpants on the way.
