DreamWorks Animation and Universal cancel The Croods 2

The film was originally slated for release in 2017, but now all production has been cancelled.

DreamWorks Animation and Universal Studios have reportedly cancelled the upcoming sequel to its 2013 animation, The Croods.

Universal Pictures’ chairman Donna Langley confirmed that production of The Croods 2 will be stopped immediately, following a meeting at DreamWorks’ HQ.

As a result, around 30 employees who were working on the film will now be looking for new jobs.

However, workers have been told DreamWorks hopes to keep them at the firm and will work on other film projects.

The film was originally slated for release in 2017, but this was pushed back in August to 2018.
