Exclusive: Bird bloopers
Rare is the film that lets you see what didn’t make it into the movie before you catch the actual finished project itself, but hey — storks are throwing away tradition these days.
In Warner Bros.’ animated feature Storks, in theaters Friday, the baby-bearing birds of lore have shirked their infantile responsibilities and reinvented themselves as mail carriers for a hi-tech online mega-store. At least, until one flyaway bird (Andy Samberg’s Junior) finds an errant baby and teams with the storks’ resident human orphan Tulip (Katie Crown) to deliver the newborn without alerting the boss (Kelsey Grammer).
You can read EW’s review of the “delightfully mapcap” film here, but prior to the film’s promising box office debut on Sept. 23, EW has an exclusive peek at some of the aerial antics that aren’t flying into movie theaters this weekend.
The Storks blooper reel bears everything you’d want in a montage of ornithilogical outtakes, with particular emphasis on Samberg’s Junior and the eccentric Pigeon Toady, voiced by Stephen Kramer Glickman. Watch ‘em here:
Storks is written by Nicholas Stoller, who co-directed with Doug Sweetland; the film also stars Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Anton Starkman, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Ike Barinholtz, and Danny Trejo.
