In celebration of the Spring Solstice 2013 and in conjunction with the release of DreamWorks Animation's 3D The Croods, a family animation centered around the first ever pre historic road trip, a giant monument will be erected at Stonehenge this week. This marks the first time a modern structure has EVER been allowed on this historic site. Recreating the original construction of Stonehenge, the local boy scouts troop will also be on hand to help roll the new colossal monument into place.
The Spring Solstice or 'Vernal Equinox' recognizes the first day of spring and each year sees druids and pagans gather at Stonehenge early in the morning to watch the sun rise above the prehistoric stones. This year an additional monument, in the shape of The Croods, will become part of these special celebrations at daybreak. (All Druids and Pagans can send their complaints to DreamWorks Animation.)
Meet the first modern family, The Croods, whose world is rocked by generational clashes and seismic shifts that come to a head on a wild road trip filled with dazzling adventures, amazing firsts (like fire...and shoes), never before seen creatures and the epic discovery that they'll have to stay one step ahead of the ever-changing world or get left in the prehistoric dust.
The Croods was released March 22nd, 2013 and stars Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Cloris Leachman, Clark Duke, Chris Sanders, Randy Thom. The film is directed by Kirk De Micco, Chris Sanders.
