About the film

The Croods need a new place to live. So, the first prehistoric family sets off into the world in search of a safer place to call home. When they discover an idyllic, walled-in paradise that meets all their needs, they think their problems are solved … except for one thing - another family already lives there: the Bettermans. 

The Bettermans (emphasis on the “better”) are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. A new threat will propel both families on an epic adventure outside the safety of the wall, one that will force them to embrace their differences, draw strength from each other and forge a future together.
