If there was ever an animated family that my family could relate with it is The Croods. Haha! We love The Croods in our house. When The Croods: A New Age was released we just had to watch it. The movie is visually stunning, the story is hilarious, and the music is rockin. Because of The Croods, my daughter is now into learning all about cavemen and the Ice Age. She was even excited to be invited to attend Camp Croods where she learned about the world of The Croods. While The Croods: A New Age is already out on digital now. The movie will also be coming out on Blu-ray and DVD soon. Below is all of the release information as well as all of the bonus features!
