Warner Bros. is offering up a glimpse at the fruits of its labors with the first teaser trailer for upcoming CG comedy Storks, set to hit theaters on September 23, 2016. The studio also released a first-look poster for the flick.
Co-directed by Nicholas Stoller and Doug Sweetland from a script by Stoller, Storks blends an age-old folktale with the trials of modern commerce. Once the go-to baby delivery birds, storks nowadays deliver packages for giant global e-tailer CornerStore.com. Junior, their top delivery story, is on the verge of promotion when he accidentally switches on the Baby Making Machine and creates an unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to hand off the little bundle before his boss notices, Junior and his human friend Tulip set out on their first-ever, totally wild baby delivery mission.
Storks features the voices of Andy Samberg, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Nicholas Stoller is best known for writing and directing live-action comedy features such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted.
