The all-new family comedy Woody Woodpecker is headed to DVD, Digital and On Demand on February 6th and, to celebrate, AWN has an exclusive clip from the film to share.
From Universal Pictures Home Entertainment production entity Universal 1440 Entertainment, Woody Woodpecker is directed by Alex Zamm (Inspector Gadget 2, The Little Rascals Save the Day) and produced by Mike Elliott. The film blends live action and CG animation to tell the crazy and humorous story of an all-out turf war between the mischievous prankster and a big-city lawyer who wants to build his dream home in Woody’s backyard.
Returning with his signature laugh, wacky antics and wisecracks, Woody (voiced by Eric Bauza) must protect his forest home from Lance Walters (Timothy Omundson), who starts building his dream mansion in the forest with his son, Tommy (Graham Verchere), and fiancée, Vanessa (Thaila Ayala). To make matters worse, Woody must avoid the clutches of two grizzly poachers. With a series of crazy hijinks to sabotage their plans, Woody proves he’ll stop at nothing to defend his turf.
