Warner Bros. celebrated the Kids Choice Awards with a new sneak peek video that sheds some more light on its upcoming original CG animated feature Storks (Sept. 23). The footage gives viewers a look at the film’s take on the human world, the storks’ very modern shipping warehouse, and the “happy accident” that causes all the chaos.
Storks takes place in a world where the birds in question have long ago given up delivering babies, and instead taken up delivering packages for an internet retailer. When a stork named Junior, set to take over the shipping operation, accidentally winds up with an “unauthorized” baby, he frantically tries to fix the situation before anyone finds out.
Produced by Warner Animation Group, Storks is directed by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors, The Five-Year Engagement) and animation vet Doug Sweetland (Disney’s Presto short). Stoller also penned the film and is producing with Brad Lewis. The voice cast stars Andy Samberg as Junior, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.
