A new CG animated family flick takes wing thanks to Lionsgate this week, as A Stork’s Journey launches in the US and Canada Thursday, June 1. You can meet the flick’s fledgling hero — voiced by Drake Bell — in the clip below. As previously announced, the feature will also be available on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand, and will receive a theatrical release June 30.
Featuring the voice talents of Drake Bell (Superhero Movie, Drake and Josh), YouTube star Justine “iJustine” Ezarik, and Jane Lynch (Glee, Wreck-It Ralph), A Stork’s Journey follows Richard, an orphaned sparrow who believes he’s a stork, just like his adoptive family! But when winter comes and the flock prepares to migrate to Africa, his stork family must reveal his true identity and leave him behind in the forest with the other sparrows unable to survive the long journey. Determined to prove he is a stork after all, Richard ventures south on an epic adventure, accompanied by friends big and small, to unleash his true potential and be reunited with his family.
