DreamWorks Update: 'The Croods 2' Is Uncancelled, 'Spooky Jack' and 'Voltron' Season 4.

Ever since Universal bought DreamWorks Animation, it hasn't been entirely clear how it would affect their future. But one of the first big changes that happened after the acquisition was the apparent cancelling of one of the Studio's films, a sequel to 2013's The Croods.

It was a surprising move: after all the stone-age comedy was one of the Studio's recent successes. This week, came the surprising news that The Croods 2 is back in production. The film has a new release date of  September 2020.

DreamWorks also announced a new film titled Spooky Jack for release the following year. It will feature three siblings who move into a new home which is full of mythological creatures. The studio describes it as "a comic look under the bed and in the closet of kids’ imaginations."

Spooky Jack is being co-produced by the highly successful Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions. Blumhouse has produced a number of very successful low-budget films, primarily in the horror genre, including The Purge and Paranormal Activity series, Split, and this year's breakout Get Out. They are one of the film world's recent biggest success stories, so to see them get involved with animation is a pretty big deal.

According to the IMDB listing, the film will be co-directed by Star Vs The Forces Of Evil creator Daron Nefcy (Making her feature debut) alongside Trolls director Mike Mitchell.

Last, but by no means least, we come to some DWA TV news. We already knew that  Season 4 of the smash hit Voltron Legendary Defender was on its way soon. Thanks to the brand new trailer we now have a firm release date.  Season 4 (which will be just 6 episodes long) will arrive on Netflix on Friday, October 13. Check out the trailer, below!

With Shiro back at the Castleship, Keith makes a choice that causes a rift between him and Team Voltron. As Allura and team focus on building the Voltron Coalition, Prince Lotor’s plans start to take shape.
