Storks used to be known for delivering babies. Well now, in the new animated film, they are known for delivering packages for a global internet retail giant – and the do it very well! ‘Junior’ in particular, is an excellent delivery stork. He is so good, that the company is actually on the verge of promoting him when he accidentally turns on the Baby Making Machine and it pops out a precious and completely unauthorized baby girl.
Junior freaks out, and with the help of his friend Tulip (the only human employee at the company), he goes out on a mission to delivery this baby. The mission becomes one long and wild journey, when Tulip and Junior face tons of obstacles on their way to deliver the baby to a family who has been wishing for her.
The stars in the new animated film include: Andy Samberg (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “Hotel Transylvania”), Katie Crown (Cartoon Network’s “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”).
The film is directed by Nicholas Stoller (“Neighbors,” BAFTA nominee for “Muppets Most Wanted”) and Doug Sweetland (supervising animator on “Cars,” Oscar-nominated director of the animated short “Presto”), from a screenplay written by Stoller; and produced by Brad Lewis (“Ratatouille”) and Nicholas Stoller.
