The backwoods hijinx continue as Sony Pictures Animation announces the upcoming home entertainment release of Open Season: Scared Silly — the fourth installment of the CG animated feature franchise. The all-new comedy adventure is slated for a Spring 2016 release from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and is being directed by David Feiss (head of story on Open Season and creator of the Cow and Chicken TV series), with John Bush (The Simpsons, Family Guy) producing. Rainmaker Ent. is providing the animation.
Scared Silly opens with Elliot telling a campfire story about the legend of the Wailing Wampus Werewolf that lives in Timberline National Forest. Domesticated Boog is terrified by the story and decides to “chicken out” of their annual summer camping trip until he knows the werewolf i sogne. Determined to help Boog overcome his fears, Elliot and their woodland friends band together to scare the fear out of Boog and uncover the mystery of the Wailing Wampus Werewolf.
Director Feiss is an animation industry veteran whose first gig was serving as a story artist for Hanna-Barbera. His most recent completed works are four mini-movies created for the home entertainment release of Sony’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: Steve’s First Bath, Super Manny, Attack of the 50ft Gummy Bear and Earl Scouts.
