Netflix released the first trailer for The Willoughbys, a highly stylized CG animated film starring Will Forte, Mya Rudolph, Alessia Cara, Terry Crews, Martin Short, Jane Krakowski, Seán Cullen, and Ricky Gervais.
Kris Pearn, the director of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2, wrote and directed The Willoughbys.
The film is based on the book by Lois Lowry and the film tells the story of the four Willoughbys children who yearn for a normal family with loving parents. The children believe they’d be better off raising themselves so they decide to send their parents on vacation and with a nanny’s help they go on their own adventure to find out what it means to be a family.
In the trailer, the narrator, voiced by Gervais says, “All the Willoughby children ever wanted was to have a normal family.”
The Willoughbys will be released on April 22.
