The 2021 animated film slate has already produced many great films. “Luca,” Raya and the Last Dragon, and the “The SpongeBob Movie Sponge on the Run”, brought a lot of fun, action, and laughter to a year that was difficult for many. The animated feature story lineup this year covered many topics, such as robot revolts or a superhero squirrel and his human buddy who save the day.
“Extinct” is a time-travel adventure that stars a couple who look just like Homer Simpson’s favourite food. It could be the next addition to our 2021 animated greats list. “Extinct” is a multi-national partnership between production studios in Canada, China, and the United States. It was first announced in September 2019, via Deadline. A brilliant, comedic voice cast is featured in the animated film as well as a writer/director team with impressive animated TV comedy chops.
Here’s what we know so far about Extinct.
Extinct (2021), : Release Date
“Extinct”, thanks to multi-national collaborations among studios in China and Canada, has been released in select regions but not in others. The film was made available in the United Kingdom by Sky Cinema’s Sky Go (via The Guardian) and released on August 20, 2021. Sony Pictures will release the film in the United States. No official release date has been established. IMDb lists a October 16, 2021 US release date. This is likely to be true even though the film has been released elsewhere.
Many well-known actors have been cast as the voice for “Extinct”. Variety claims that the film stars Adam DeVine (via YouTube), Rachel Bloom (via YouTube), and Ken Jeong (via Sky TV). DeVine portrays Flummel Ed, the male Flummel while Bloom plays Flummel O, the sister of Ed. Jeong plays Clarence, the red-sweater-wearing Pomeranian in the trailer. But, “Extinct” features Ed and Op traveling across time and meeting a variety supernatural creatures and animals. The trio are only the tip iceberg of talent in terms of voice talent. According to IMDb, “Extinct” features Zazie Beetz and Jim Jefferies as well as Reggie Watts and Alex Borstein. EDM.com has Steve Aoki lending his voice as Vinny, a DJ Flummel, to “Extinct.”
“Extinct,” while a family-friendly film, is sure to bring a lot of laughter for everyone. The film’s creative team, who all worked on “The Simpsons,” can be enjoyed by all ages. Joel H. Cohen, John Frink and Rob LaZebnik were the show’s screenwriters. Raymond S. Persi (co-directors of Extinct) and David Silverman (directors of several episodes of The Simpsons) have directed numerous episodes. Silverman was the director of the feature-length film “The Simpsons,” which was released in 2007.
Extinct (2021): Plot
Extinct” explores time travel through the eyes twins Op (who are eccentric) and Ed (who are Op). Op and Ed belong to a group of Flummels, a race made up of donut-shaped animals. They were seen on the Galapagos Islands, 1835 according to Timeless Films. The two end up in Shanghai, modern-day Shanghai, during their annual Flower Festival. Clarence, a canine companion, helps them adapt to the modern world. Op and Ed learn, however, that their race has disappeared. Clarence’s owner is an astronomer who has tried time travel. The three of them set out on an expedition to return in time and save the Flummel siblings.
“Extinct,” while unlikely to reach as far as a certain TARDIS traveling doctor in terms “timey-wimey”, the pair will still encounter strange creatures and points of time. “Extinct” will explore the mysterious reasons for the Flummels’ extinction. Although we’ll have to wait to find out if Op and Ed have the ability to save their race, at least their search will be entertaining.
