In a statement, Curtis and Perez-Castro said, “We believe Night of the Zoopocalypse to be a genre-defining film for the whole family. It is an ode to the monster movies that inspired us growing up and that feature jump scares, astonishing creatures, and an unforgettable cast of hilarious, lovable characters. We hope that our movie will expand the possibilities of animation as a storytelling medium in ways audiences have never imagined were possible.”
What is the Plot of ‘Night Of The Zoopocalypse’?
According to the film’s official synopsis, “One night, a meteor crashes into Colepepper Zoo, unleashing a virus that transforms the animals into strange and hilarious slobbering zombie mutants. Gracie, a young, quirky wolf, teams up with a gruff and fearsome mountain lion to find a way back to her pack. As the zoo is overrun, they must come up with a plan to get all the animals back to normal. Together with the help of a motley crew of survivors—Xavier the movie-obsessed lemur, Frida the fiery capybara, Ash the sarcastic, fabulous ostrich, and Felix the treacherous monkey—they embark on a perilous mission to rescue the zoo and defeat Bunny Zero, the deranged mutant king, determined to spread the virus beyond the zoo walls. Welcome to… the Zoopocalypse!”
The production is underway at well-established European animation studios Mac Guff (known for ‘Despicable Me’) and L’Atelier Animation (recognized for ‘Leap!’). The film is currently in production, set for release in Q4 2024, and will be distributed by Elevation Pictures in Canada and Apollo Films in France.
