Your kids will love the awesome environments. The filmmakers created more than 450 varieties of rocks and 250 trees, shrubs, leaves, and more to create the beautiful, fantastic settings. While the family start off living a small, cave-trapped life in a hostile environment ("We don't have a villain in our movie," says visual supervisor Markus Manninen. "Really the world is, to some degree, the villain, but it's also the place they live; it's home"), they are soon forced to move out of their dust-filled, color-free home.
Their new world quickly comes alive (in more ways than one) for both the Croods and the audience."This beautiful blossoming color world comes to life in front of them and shocks us as an audience because we're going through the journey with them," Manninen says.
