Based on a script by John Cleese and Kirk De Micco, formerly titled "Crood Awakening," this is set in the Stone Age, to a previously undiscovered era known as the Croodacious - a time when Mother Nature was still experimenting and the flora and fauna we know today hasn't evolved yet. This is about a big man in a small village called Crood. His position as Leader of the Hunt is threatened by the arrival of a prehistoric genius who comes up with revolutionary new inventions... like fire.
