The kids were so excited to see Surly!
- This was Bobby Moynihan’s first roll as the “bad guy.” When you meet him, you don’t see a bad guy. He actually seems really, super sweet and huggable!
- Will Arnett feels it is important to do family friendly films so he can share it with his kids (ages 7 & 9).
- Maya Rudolph is amazed with how they put the movie together. Going from working in a voice recording studio working with the director…then having her words transformed by the way they edited the movie! It’s so different than live acting.
- Gabriel Inglesias BOUGHT a car when he was offered the job! LOL…okay, so he may have been joking, but maybe he did?!?!
After the press conference, Kira and I were able to grab a few fun selfies with Gabriel and Maya.
The press and family were given a theater all to ourselves to screen The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature.
This movie makes you think about what’s right and what’s wrong. Andie has been trying to help the animals maintain their animal instincts. It isn’t until the nut shop blows up that all of the animals have to face the fact that they have to forage for their own food.
They have been depending on Surly and the nut shop to provide for them. Now that the nut shop is gone and the park is on the verge of being destroyed they have to band together to FIGHT for their home and their lives.
We laughed all the way through the entire movie. Logan’s favorite part was the deadly animal control trucks (it had a nice smiling squirrel on the side of the truck…but the truck had TEETH). Kira’s favorite part when Precious and Frankie fell in love and had puppies. My husband and I both loved Mr. Feng and his gang of mice (probably because Kira and I are totally into karate).
Surly Squirrel (Will Arnett) and the gang are back. We are once again in Oakton where the evil mayor has decided to bulldoze Liberty Park and build a dangerous amusement park in its place. Surly and his ragtag group of animal friends band together to save their home, defeat the mayor, and take back the park.
THE NUT JOB 2 also features the voice talent of Katherine Heigl (The Nut Job), Jackie Chan (Kung Fu Panda 3), Peter Stormare (Penguins of Madagascar), Bobby Cannavale (Ant-Man), Isabela Moner (Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life), and Maya Rudolph (The Angry Birds Movie).
This nutty sequel to the 2014 animated hit is NOW PLAYING!
