A prehistoric family meet the future

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 a 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 are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. When the Bettermans temporarily invite the Croods into their home, it isn’t long before tensions rise between this cave family and a modern one.


Just when all seems lost, a new threat will push the two families together.


Join the fun when The Croods: A New Age opens in cinemas on November 26.
