First Trailer for Lionsgate’s ‘The Wild Life’ Animated Feature

The Belgian Family Feature

Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have released the first trailer for their upcoming CG animated The Wild Life, yet another wacky talking animal pic due in theaters September 9.

Originally titled Robinson Crusoe, the film is actually the Belgian family feature, retitled for American audiences.

Directed by Vincent Kesteloot and Ben Stassen (A Turtle’s Tale 2: Sammy’s Escape from Paradise), the kids film has already opened in plenty of territories overseas and has made a solid impact at the box office.

I actually like the designs, they’re different looking. But yeah, the dialogue and the tone of the trailer seems annoying. See for yourself in the player below.

From the over-exuberant parrot Mak to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise. Then Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering new “creature.” No matter their differences, castaway human and quirky animals embark on an hilarious new adventure, building the island’s first tree-house and surviving together. But when two conniving members of the animal kingdom — the savage cats Mal & May – pounce into a battle for control of the island, Crusoe and his animal posse must uncover the true power of friendship against all odds (even savage cats).
