Isla Fisher, Tim Minchin, Eric Bana, Guy Pearce, Miranda Tapsell, Angus Imrie, Keith Urban and Jacki Weaver star in the all-new animated comedy adventure that sets out to prove just because something is different, doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful; coming to the streamer December 10.
This December 10, Netflix goes down under in the new animated movie Back to the Outback, featuring some of Australia’s most dangerous creatures, all locked in a reptile house at the zoo, who finally get fed up with captivity. Tired of gawking humans who look at them like they’re monsters, this ragtag group of deadly creatures plots a daring escape to return to the Outback - a place where they’ll fit in without being judged for their scales and fangs.
Leading the group is Maddie (Isla Fisher), a poisonous snake with a heart of gold, who bands together with a self-assured Thorny Devil lizard Zoe (Miranda Tapsell), a lovelorn hairy spider Frank (Guy Pearce), and a sensitive scorpion Nigel (Angus Imrie). But when their nemesis — Pretty Boy (Tim Minchin), a cute but obnoxious koala — unexpectedly joins their escape, Maddie and the gang have no choice but to bring him along. So begins a hair-raising and hilarious road trip across Australia, as they are pursued by a zookeeper Chaz (Eric Bana) and his adventure-seeking mini-me (Diesel La Torraca). Directed by Clare Knight and Harry Cripps, the movie also features the voices of Rachel House, Keith Urban, Celeste Barber, Wayne Knight, Lachlan Power, and Jacki Weaver.
