Larrikins is a cancelled animated film from DreamWorks Animation. It was written by Harry Cripps and to be produced by Christina Steinberg. It was set to be released on February 16, 2018, before its cancellation was announced on March 5, 2017. Had been released, it would have been the first DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by Universal Pictures, whose parent company NBCUniversal acquired DWA in 2016.

Plot Edit

When an uptight bilby gets kicked out of the sheltered life of his family burrow, he ventures out and finds himself launched on a musical adventure across the mystical Australian outback. On the way, he must battle an evil army of monsters known as the Syvalionilas, or "Syvas" for short, and win the heart of his one true love.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

According to sources, it wasn't working out creatively. It had been pushed around the schedule and producer Gregg Taylor transitioned from his head of development job at DreamWorks Animation to work on the film. The project then made the move from 20th Century Fox to Universal Pictures after the studio was acquired by NBCUniversal via Comcast. This constant change of workplace and schedule may have been the reason why it was shelved, along with The Croods 2.

Result Edit

The film will be shelved permanently.
