TRAILER: “Spark: A Space Tail” – Animation Scoop

TRAILER: “Spark: A Space Tail”

Here’s a nice surprise. The trailer for Aaron Woodley’s Spark: A Space Tail which is opening next month, on April 14th. Jessica Biel, Susan Sarandon and Patrick Stewart topline the voice cast on this film – from our friends who created The Nut Job. This looks to be a vast improvement in visual quality and storyline. It’s got a wacky fast-paced, sci-fi monkey-king vibe… I like it. Take a peek:

Storyline

Thirteen years ago, the power-mad General Zhong seized control of Planet Bana and tore it to pieces in the process. Now splintered into hundreds of shards, Zhong is Bana’s evil-overlord, ruling with an iron fist. Enter Spark, a teenage monkey and his friends, Vix, a battle-ready fox, and Chunk, a tech-savvy pig. Spark learns of Zhong’s secret plan to take over the universe by capturing a giant space monster known as the Kraken – a beast that has the power to create black holes. If Zhong manages to harness the Kraken’s power, he’ll have history’s deadliest weapon at his fingertips, and it’s up to Spark and his friends to stop him. Spark’s journey takes him to the farthest reaches of the universe, where he encounters great dangers and discovers the secret of his true identity. An action-packed space adventure full of humor and heart, Spark is the story of a boy who takes on great responsibility and in the process discovers his rightful place in the universe.

  • Looks almost like Journey to the West IN SPACE (I hope that was what they were going for..).

    Like The Nut Job, that movie is still bad.
