DreamWorks Animation plans sequel for 'The Croods'

For the caveman family of The Croods, the Stone Age isn’t over yet. The DreamWorks Animation movie is getting a sequel, EW has confirmed.

Since its release on March 22, The Croods has scored big at the box office, earning over $386 million worldwide. It was a welcome success for the company, following the disappointing performance of DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians in late 2012.

The Croods, about a family of cavemen on the dangerous but adventurous search for a new home, featured the voice talent of Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Nicolas Cage, and Catherine Keener. There’s no official word yet on which stars will return for the sequel or when the new film will be released.

Shine bright, shine far! Disney plans a sequel to Tyra Banks/Lindsay Lohan flick 'Life-Size'

Show me your 100 watt smile, Millennial nostalgia hounds!

The Disney Channel has confirmed to EW that it’s currently developing a sequel to Life-Size, the 2000 TV movie that starred a young, fresh-faced Lindsay Lohan as a lonely girl who accidentally brings a Barbie-like doll (played by Tyra Banks) to life. Banks is on board to reprise her role as Eve, the toy-turned-mother-figure; she’ll executive produce the sequel as well. And yes, Life-Size 2 will also feature a new version of “Be a Star,” the inspirational song Banks’s character sang in the first film.

Banks and the Mouse have been thick as thieves lately. Earlier this year, the supermodel guest starred on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up; she’s also developing a primetime series about her teenage years for ABC. The program is called Fivehead, a reference to Tyra’s famously robust forehead.

CAUTION: Food may eat YOU in 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' sequel -- EXCLUSIVE

Parents know it’s never good to play with your food — but it’s even worse if the food plays with you.

That’s a menacing possibility in the sequel to 2009’s animated Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, with the food that once fell from the sky now taking on the form of various voracious living beasts such as watermelephants, tacodiles, shrimpanzees, and apple pie-thons.

“Magically, every creature is a combination of a food item and an animal that results in just a cringeworthy pun,” producer Kirk Bodyfelt jokes in an exclusive interview with EW’s Family Room.

Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers will feature inventor Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader) and meteorologist Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) returning to the island town of Swallow Falls to help the clean-up crew battle these edible monstrosities.

Leftovers is also adding some new cast members to freshen things up.
