There have been many animated films made in 2021 so far. “Luca,” Raya and the Last Dragon, and “The SpongeBob Movie Sponge on the Run” provided thrilling adventures, amazing action, and much-needed chuckles during a difficult year. Some of this year’s animated feature stories covered a broad range of topics, including robot revolts and a superhero squirrel who saves the day with his human friend.
“Extinct,” which is a time travel adventure featuring a few characters that look like Homer Simpson’s favorite food, could be an addition to our 2021 animation list. The multinational partnership of production studios from the United States, China and Canada called “Extinct” was revealed for the first time in September 2019. This animated film features a hilarious voice cast and a co-director and writer team with great animated TV comedy chops.
This is all we know so far about “Extinct”.
Extinct (2021). : Release Date
Due to multi-national collaborations between studios from China, Canada and the United States, “Extinct” is the only film that has been released in certain regions. The film was released in the United Kingdom via Sky Cinema’s Sky Go service (via The Guardian) on August 20, 2021. The film will be released by Sony Pictures in the United States. However, there is no official release date. IMDb lists an October 16, 2020 release date for the United States. It is possible that this may be true, particularly since the film was already released in other countries.
A number of actors are part of the voice cast for “Extinct”. Variety reports that the film stars Adam DeVine and Rachel Bloom. Ken Jeong is also featured in the trailer for the film on Sky TV (via YouTube). DeVine plays Flummel Ed (a male Flummel), while Bloom plays Flummel Op (a female Flummel). Jeong is Clarence, a Pomeranian wearing a red-sweater in the trailer. The three actors are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to voice talent. “Extinct” takes Ed and Op on a time-traveling adventure and meets a variety of supernatural creatures. The cast of “Extinct” includes Zazie Betetz, Jim Jefferies and Reggie Watts according to IMDb. EDM.com also has Steve Aoki, a DJ Flummel called Vinny, lending his voice to “Extinct”.
Although “Extinct” may be a family movie, its creative team, which includes all the people who worked on “The Simpsons,” will bring plenty of laughs for everyone. Screenwriters Joel H. Cohen and John Frink were among the show’s creators. Raymond S. Persi and David Silverman, co-directors on “Extinct,” directed many episodes of the show. Silverman also helmed “The Simpsons” the feature-length movie in 2007.
Extinct (2021). Plot
“Extinct” examines the idea of time travel through twins Op, and Ed, who are both eccentric. According to Timeless Films which distributed the film in the United Kingdom, Op and Ed are part of a donut-shaped race known as Flummels that lived on the Galapagos Islands between 1835-1835. They meet up in Shanghai today during the annual Flower Festival of their species. Clarence, a dog who assists them in adapting to modern life, is a friend they meet. Op and Ed discover that their race is gone. Clarence’s scientist owner, Ed, has experimented with time travel and the three embark on an expedition to go back in time to save the Flummel siblings from extinction.
While “Extinct” may not go as far in terms of “timey wimey” pranks as a certain TARDIS doctor, they will encounter some unusual creatures and points in their journey. “Extinct” will also explore the mystery behind the Flummels’ death. We will have to wait to see if Op or Ed can save their race. But at the very minimum, it will be fun.
