Netflix has dropped the official trailer and key art for upcoming original animated feature Back to the Outback. Fresh from the security office fo the Australian Wildlife Reserve, the spot offers that last known footage of global cuteness icon Pretty Boy before he was brazenly koala-napped by a gang of fatal fauna! The re-wilding comedy-adventure for the whole family premieres December 10.
Tired of being locked in a reptile house where humans gawk at them like they’re monsters, a ragtag group of Australia’s deadliest creatures plot a daring escape from their zoo to the Outback, a place where they’ll fit in without being judged for their scales and fangs. Leading the group is Maddie (Isla Fisher), a poisonous snake with a heart of gold, who bands together with a self-assured Thorny Devil lizard Zoe (Miranda Tapsell), lovelorn hairy spider Frank (Guy Pearce) and sensitive scorpion Nigel (Angus Imrie).
…But when their nemesis — Pretty Boy (Tim Minchin), a cute but obnoxious koala — unexpectedly joins their escape, Maddie and the gang have no choice but to take him with them. So begins a hair-raising and hilarious road trip across Australia, as they are pursued by a zookeeper Chaz (Eric Bana) and his adventure-seeking son, Chazzie (Diesel La Torraca).
Back to the Outback also features the voices of Rachel House, Keith Urban, Celeste Barber, Wayne Knight, Lachlan Power and Jacki Weaver. The movie is directed by Clare Knight and Harry Cripps, written by Cripps from a story created with Gregory Lessans. The Netflix Original feature is animated by Reel FX (Scoob!, The Book of Life).
