As consistent and ubiquitous as their movie lines are, DreamWorks Animation hasn’t published many truly critical favorites. Except for what it is, the Croods franchise is without a doubt one among them. The fun and exciting family adventure stories told in both films and thus in the 2D Netflix spinoff series, “Dawn of the Croods”, are bound to be one of the most serious and refreshing stories within the studio’s work.
An example of this will be “The Croods: An Era of Replacement,” the 2020 sequel to the first movie of 2013. While Universal’s purchase of DreamWorks Animation almost completely eliminated animation, for a long time Universal managed to avoid the feeling of diminishing returns. The long-awaited sequels plague every expansion of the franchise within the genre, while keeping the film’s primary target on the character and family. As the first film to feature a serious part of the Croods’ journey, “A New Era” may be a must-see for anyone fascinated by their 2013 adventures.

What did we see in the first movie?
As the changing tectonic plates and continents of the planet forced the Croods out of the safety of their cave home, matriarch Ugga (Katherine Keener), Eep (Emma Stone) and Thunk (Clark Duke), teenage daughter and the son, Grug, became the ferocious five along with Sandy (Randy Thom) and Gran (Cloris Leachman) hilarious and mammoth-skinned tough.
They venture into a dangerous new world and meet Guy (Ryan Reynolds), one of the first Homo sapiens with a knack for invention and a lazy pet, a belt, well, a belt. Given the danger (and development) against Grug, who was struggling with life outside the cave and increasingly nervous about the growing affection between the inventive Guy and therefore the adventurer Eep, the scene was set for a battle of wills. which finally ended with benevolent protection and pain. He led the change and embraced the orphan boy as a member of the Croods.
