The film by director and writer Joel Crawford and Kirk De Micco aired in December 2020. Over 80 minutes long, The Croods was in the shade of 20th Century Fox production studios.
The story goes back to ancient times. One of the ancient family of Homo Neanderthals lived in a cave. They consist of Grug (Nicolas Cage) the father, Ugga (Catherine Keener) the mother, Gran (Cloris Leachman) in-law, Eep (Emma Stone) eldest daughter, Thunk (Clark Duke).
Many ancient humans of their kind have become extinct. Types of humans after the Neanderthals Homo are Homo sapiens or modern humans. Grug (Nicolas Cage) is very protective of his family from attacks by outsiders and new things. It could also make their families still survive today. But Eep (Emma Stone) felt very bored to stay in the cave. He wants to see the outside world and new things.
