Emily Blunt and John Krasinski's star-studded animation Animal Crackers is finally available to watch on Netflix, after years of struggling to find a distributor across the UK and US.
The film features the voice talents of the real-life married couple and A Quiet Place co-stars as well as Raven-Symoné, Ian McKellen, Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito and more. It centres on Owen (Krasinski), a man who stumbles across a box of magical biscuits that can transform the consumer into whatever creature they're shaped like.
Knowing that his nephew has been a circus enthusiast since he was a young boy, Owen's uncle Bob (James Arnold Taylor) leaves him his travelling show – which is struggling to bring in an audience.
Despite his wife Zoe's (Blunt) enthusiasm, Owen just can't see them restoring it to its former glory. That is until the couple's daughter Mackenzie encourages her dad to use the crackers to create acts to bring in the punters.
Of course, it wouldn't be a film without a little drama. Animal Crackers has its fair share, what with Bob's bitter brother Horatio trying to steal the circus from under them and there being a limited number of human cookies to transform himself back whenever he opts to take part in a show.
Will the Huntington's manage to make Owen's dream come true?
After being released in China back in 2018, Animal Crackers roll-out deals with Relativity Media, Serafini Releasing and Entertainment Studios fell through, meaning that it had no choice but to delay distribution.
It's just fortunate that streaming platform Netflix came to the rescue.
In other Blunt and Krasinski news, the couple's A Quiet Place sequel, A Quiet Place: Part II, has officially been pushed back to 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.
Animal Crackers is available to watch on Netflix now.
