The Twits first edition

As part of Aardman Animation's "five-picture deal" with DreamWorks Animation, an animated film called Crood Awakening, an adaptation of the book called The Twits by Roald Dahl in caveman times, was in the early works at Aardman. The film was written by John Cleese and Kirk DeMicco.


Plot[]

The premise of the film would've been loosely based on the Roald Dahl book The Twits but set in the Stone Age.



Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Aardman and DreamWorks separated in 2007 after the box office failure of Flushed Away and executive meddling from DreamWorks.


Results[]

  • DreamWorks Animation & 20th Century Fox made an animated film in 2013 that was set in the Stone Age in 2013 with The Croods (where Cleese and DeMicco were heavily involved). 5 years later, Aardman Animations made Early Man in 2018.
