Tyler Perry Gets Animated in ‘Madea's Tough Love’

Multi-hyphenate talent Tyler Perry makes his first foray into family animation with the straight-to-DVD release from Lionsgate on January 20, 2015.

In Tyler Perry's first animated film, the larger-than-life Madea gets herself into even more over-the-top and outrageous situations. The film features the voice talent of Tyler Perry as Madea and Uncle Joe, among others, and Cassi Davis (House Of Payne) as Aunt Bam along with Rolonda Watts (Curious George), Avery Kidd Waddell (Road Trip), William "Bootsy" Collins (Night at the Museum) and Cree Summer (WordGirl).

“After a run-in with the law,” reads the official description, “Madea is sentenced to community service. Determined to do good for the 'hood, Madea enlists Aunt Bam and Uncle Joe to try and save the Moms Mabley Youth Center from being shut down. With her irresistible sass and wisdom, Madea rallies the local kids to make a stand -- and proves that behind her tough exterior is a whole lot of love!”
