Storks


#Storks

“You’re probably wondering how a stork, a girl, and a baby wound up in this situation…” - Junior


Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet retail giant Cornerstore.com. Junior (Andy Samberg), the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when the Baby Factory is accidentally activated on his watch, producing an adorable – and wholly unauthorized – baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop, in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.

The animated adventure “Storks” stars Andy Samberg (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “Hotel Transylvania”), Katie Crown (“Clarence”), Kelsey Grammer (“Toy Story 2,” “The Simpsons”), Jennifer Aniston (“We’re the Millers,” “Horrible Bosses”), Ty Burrell (“Finding Dory,” “Modern Family”), Keegan-Michael Key (“The Angry Birds Movie,” “Keanu,” “Key & Peele”), Jordan Peele (“Keanu,” “Key & Peele”) and Danny Trejo (“The Book of Life,” “Muppets Most Wanted”).

The film was directed by Nicholas Stoller (“Neighbors,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”; writer on "The Muppets”) and Oscar nominee Doug Sweetland (the animated short “Presto”; supervising animator on “Cars”), from a screenplay written by Stoller. “Storks” was produced by Brad Lewis (Academy Award-winning “Ratatouille,” “Antz”; codirector on “Cars 2”) and Nicholas Stoller. The executive producers are Glenn Ficarra, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, John Requa and Jared Stern. The film is edited by John Venzon (“Shark Tale,” “Chicken Run”). Music is composed by Mychael Danna (“The Good Dinosaur”; Oscar winner, “Life of Pi”) and Jeff Danna (“The Good Dinosaur”). Animation is by Sony Pictures Imageworks. “Storks” also features new songs “Kiss the Sky,” performed by Jason Derulo, and “Holdin’ Out,” from The Lumineers.

The action-packed, animated adventure “Storks,” from directors Nick Stoller and Doug Sweetland, takes audiences on a road trip like no other, as a super-focused stork with big ambitions, and a sunny 18-year-old orphaned girl with some wild ideas, rush to make one very special delivery. Braving danger and unforeseen setbacks, not to mention completely opposite points of view on almost everything, this unlikely pair of couriers makes the transformative journey of their lives, in an original story that celebrates friendship and family, amidst laughter and poignant moments of discovery.

Andy Samberg, who gives voice to ace delivery stork Junior, says, “The great thing about ‘Storks’ is that the emotion of the story is real and something I feel audiences can connect with. One of the characters is a child who really wants a sibling and there’s a whole family dynamic there that’s really sweet and will resonate with a lot of people. But at the same time, it’s jam-packed with jokes.”

Samberg’s interest was not only piqued by the story but the filmmakers behind it, including executive producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller of “The LEGO® Movie,” with whom he first worked on “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” “I have a ton of respect for Nick Stoller and Doug Sweetland. They showed me an early, loose animatic and it was already great, so I was in!,” he continues. “And we know Phil and Chris make incredible movies.”

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Warner Animation Group, “Storks” will screen in 2D, and in 3D in select theaters. It is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
