Animals assemble in this thrilling intergalactic adventure that sees a teen monkey and his gang (including a pig, a fox and a bug) take on the evil Zhong, in a sci-fi comedy from the makers of The Nut Job, featuring the talents
of Patrick Stewart, Jessica Biel, Hilary Swank and Susan Sarandon.
Spark is a wisecracking, teenage monkey who lives on an abandoned planet with his friends Chunk the pig Chunk, a fox called Vix and some insects. Thirteen years ago, power- hungry Zhong seized control of their planet Beta, wiping out Spark’s family and sending him into hiding. Now, Zhong plans to use the deadly space Kraken to destroy the entire universe, and no one but Spark and his ragtag gang can stop him.
We like it because:
Move over Kung Fu Panda - there’s a new animated hero for the 21st century in town in SPARK, ninety minutes of sheer sci-fi pleasure in a hilarious, inventive and heart- warming new film from the makers of The Nut Job.
Beautifully animated, action packed, and filled with great gags and memorable characters, SPARK also features a magnificent line-up of voice talent, including Hollywood superstars Patrick Stewart (outstanding as the cranky Scottish Captain), Jessica Biel, and Oscar winners Hilary Swank and Susan Sarandon; with Rob deLeeuw (Turbo Kid) stealing the show as Chunk, and Alan C Peterson being wonderfully diabolical as Zhong. Jace Norman, who plays the lead in the TV show Henry Danger, voices the mischievous monkey Spark.
Fans of Kung Fu Panda, The Secret Life of Pets, Minions and Despicable Me will be in seventh heaven here, an out of this world adventure that kids’ll go ape for.
