In anticipation of the January 17 release of 3D animated feature The Nut Job, licensee Cupcake Digital launches a film-based app.
Distributed by Open Road Films, The Nut Job is produced by Redrover, Toonbox and Gulfstream Pictures, and features the voices of Will Arnett, Liam Neeson, Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser, Stephen Lang, Jeff Dunham and Maya Rudolph.
The Nut Job app features an interactive story based on the film that sees Surly the Squirrel’s adventures in a big city park, where he becomes an unlikely hero when he plots the heist of Maury’s Nut Shop just in time to help the park animals get ready for winter.
The app includes a storybook, tap-to-paint scenes from the movie and four games. It will be available in the U.S. at an introductory price of $0.99 (full price $1.99) at the Apple App Store, Amazon Appstore, Google Play and Barnes & Noble’s Nook Store.
