Here is a brief update for all of you animation
fans anxiously awaiting Paramount's Barnyard.
It turns out that Paramount figured that the title wasn't long enough or
they are setting up a new franchise.
Barnyard Title Extended To...
Barnyard: The Original Party Animals.
That is the new title for Barnyard. Why would Paramount
make such a change? Here is a reason:
That's because this film features more than your average livestock. The
cows, pigs, mules, sheep and other animals in this film are dancing, motorcycle-riding,
partying machines, so it's only right that the title should do them justice.
From Steve Oedekerk and Nickelodeon Movies, two of the co-creators of Jimmy
Neutron: Boy Genius, and filmed entirely in CGI, comes this hilarious
look at what really happens in a barnyard when the farmer's back is turned.
Barnyard is a lighthearted tale centering around
Otis (voiced by Kevin James), a carefree party cow, who enjoys singing,
dancing and playing tricks on humans. Unlike his father Ben (voiced by Sam
Elliott), the respected patriarch of the farm, and Miles, the wise old mule
(voiced by Danny Glover), Otis is unconcerned about keeping the animals'
humanlike talents a secret. But when suddenly put in the position of responsibility,
the “udderly” irresponsible cow finds the courage to be a leader.
So there you have it, Barnyard
is now Barnyard: The Original Party Animals.
Barnyard: The Original Party Animals will come to theatres
on August 4th.
