Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet retail giant Cornerstore.com. Junior (Andy Samberg), the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when the Baby Factory is accidentally activated on his watch, 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.
“Highlighted by its superb animation and strong messages, Storks greatly impressed the Truly Moving Picture Award jury,” said Greg Sorvig, Heartland Film’s director of programming and marketing. “Audiences of all ages will enjoy the film’s witty humor and themes of managing aspiration, family, and working together.”
The action-packed, animated adventure Storks, from directors Nick Stoller and Doug Sweetland, takes audiences on a road trip like no other, as a super-focused stork with big ambitions, and a sunny 18-year-old orphaned girl with some wild ideas, rush to make one very special delivery. Braving danger and unforeseen setbacks, not to mention completely opposite points of view on almost everything, this unlikely pair of couriers makes the transformative journey of their lives, in an original story that celebrates friendship and family, amidst laughter and poignant moments of discovery.
Storks hits theaters nationwide on Friday, September 23, 2016.
