QUACKERZ – Coming Soon from Shout! Factory Kids
Sometimes random movies end up in my mail box that I wasn’t expecting. QUACKERZ was one of them. This animated comedy is being released on DVD and two disc blu-ray 3D combo pack (which includes 2D blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy) from Shout! Factory Kids.
Your entire brood will flock to QUACKERZ!
When the peaceful island of the Mandarin Ducks is mistakenly invaded by the Military Mallards, a conflict flares up between the Mandarin Emperor and the Mallard Commander. Longway, the Emperor’s son, and Erica, the daughter of the Mallard Commander, meet… and before long, a friendship takes wing. While their feathered fathers fight and egg each other on, the wicked Ms. Knout is con-duck-ting a scheme to destroy the sun. The kids will have to get all their ducks in a row to battle their foe… but waddle they do if her foul plan succeeds?
Overall this was a cute film that the whole family can enjoy. There is a bigger plot at play that includes a witch, 2 bumbling thieves, the only cop in all of town, and the Sun but my favorite bits came from the Mandarin Ducks and the Military Mallards. Longway and Erica were both adorable as they slowly became friends and tried to stop Ducks, Mallards and Humans from fighting and destroying everything. QUACKERZ was actually produced in Russia which I didn’t know until after I watched the film so I realized that perhaps some of the jokes were just lost in translation which happens. I love the animation/design and their behaviors though I will say, I had issues with the cop but that may just be me.
QUACKERZ will be released on 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy on June 14, 2016 from Shout! Factory Kids! You can preorder now!
