WATCH: Win 1 of 2 hampers worth R1 500

A family of ducks try to convince their overprotective father to go on the holiday of a lifetime.

This December, Illumination, the creators of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Minions, Despicable Me, Sing and The Secret Life of Pets, invites you to take flight into the thrill of the unknown with a funny, feathered family holiday like no other in the action-packed new original comedy, Migration.

A family of ducks decides to leave the safety of a New England pond for an adventurous trip to Jamaica. However, their well-laid plans quickly go awry when they get lost and wind up in New York City.

The experience soon inspires them to expand their horizons, open themselves up to new friends, and accomplish more than they ever thought possible.

Migration is a 2023 American animated adventure comedy film produced by Illumination and distributed by Universal Pictures.

The film is directed by Benjamin Renner, co-directed by Guylo Homsy, produced by Chris Meledandri, and written by Mike White, based on a story conceived by White and Renner.

It stars the voices of Kumail Nanjiani, Elizabeth Banks, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key, David Mitchell, Carol Kane, Caspar Jennings, Tresi Gazal, and Danny DeVito.

The story follows a family of mallards who try to convince their overprotective father to go on a holiday of a lifetime and attempt to migrate from New England, through New York City, and to Jamaica.

Illumination announced Migration in February 2022, with Renner, Homsy, and White attached as director, co-director, and writer, respectively. Renner, who had previously helmed traditionally animated films, was tasked with adapting his simple drawing style for a computer-animated film.

In hiring Renner, studio head and producer Meledandri sought to focus on a filmmaker’s vision for the project in comparison with Illumination’s recent films.

John Powell composed the score, marking his second collaboration with Illumination following The Lorax (2012).
The film opens in cinemas only on 22 December.
