Family movie night is a time in my house where we like to seek out new movies and shows that we enjoy and can share with the family. We also find it to be a time that the kids look forward to each week, where they can add some of their finds to the mix. So when we were sent the new DVD, Woody Woodpecker to review, my kids were excited to check it out and add it to our family movie night line up!
That iconic laughing bird, whose chaotic antics have entertained audiences for decades is back, and in his very own movie! In the family comedy, Woody Woodpecker, we get to see Woody Woodpecker in a feature like never before. Where the slapstick antics are at their best, leaving the family rolling with laughter as we follow along with the story. The story is one where Woody Woodpecker finds he must stop a big city lawyer from building his home in Woody’s backyard. Where you get a turf war between a big shot lawyer and a mischievous prankster, as Woody tries to avoid the poachers while trying to sabotage any plans to move forward. Along with the feature, we also enjoyed the various bonus features which include:
- Guess Who? The Evolution of Woody – Woody Woodpecker is one of the world’s most iconic animated characters. In this featurette, we explore how Woody’s look and personality have changed since his introduction in 1940.
- The Making of Woody Woodpecker – Filmmakers and cast discuss why this version of the Woody character is so appealing and how his brand of physical humor translates across audiences.
- Working with Woody – Filmmakers, cast and crew reveal the specific challenges of filming a movie whose main character is CGI.
We found this movie to be a great one to add to our family movie night line up and you can too when you head out to pick up your copy on February 6, 2018.
