New ‘Storks’ Trailer Proves Baby Delivery Is For the Birds
Not even sorry about that headline, guys. In more amusing news, here’s the latest trailer for Storks, a new animated adventure from Warner Bros. starring Andy Samberg(’s voice) as a stork who teams up with a human to deliver a bundle of joy to a hopeful family. Sounds pretty cute, but in a year filled with animated movies about talking animals, Storks is gonna need to give us a little something extra.
And it just might. Co-directed by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors) and Doug Sweetland (the Oscar-nominated short Presto), Storks looks like it might be a bit funnier than the trailers imply — at the very least, there’s some great physical comedy and Samberg seems to be up to his usual goofy antics. It’s going to be hard for WB to match up to the precedent they set with The LEGO Movie, but it should be enjoyable to watch them try.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for a global internet retail giant. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable, and wholly unauthorized, baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.
Storks also features the voices of Kelsey Grammer, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Danny Trejo, and hits theaters on September 23.
