Take flight into the thrill of the unknown with a funny, feather family vacation like no other. This holiday season, the creators of Minions, Despicable Me, Sing, and The Secret Life of Pets are back with a new action-packed original comedy. Migration.
The Mallard family is in a bit of a rut. While dad Mack is content to keep his family safe paddling around their New England pond forever, mom Pam is eager to shake things up and show their kids—teen son Dax and duckling daughter Gwen—the whole wide world. After a migrating duck family alights on their pond with thrilling tales of far-flung places, Pam persuades Mack to embark on a family trip, passing through New York City, to Jamaica.
As the Mallards make their way South for the winter, their plans quickly go sideways. The experience will inspire them to expand their horizons, open themselves up to new friends, and accomplish more than they ever thought possible while teaching them more about each other and themselves.
From a screenplay by Mike White, the film stars a top-flight comedic cast led by Kumail Nanjiani as anxious Mallard dad Mack and Elizabeth Banks as Pam, the Mallards’ quick-witted matriarch.
Caspar Jennings plays Dax, the Mallards’ restless son, and, in her feature film debut, Tresi Gazal plays Gwen, the family’s innocent and lovable daughter.
Awkwafina voices the scrappy leader of a New York City pigeon gang; Carol Kane plays Erin the heron, the first friend that the Mallards make on their journey; Keegan-Michael Key voices a homesick Jamaican parrot locked away in a Manhattan restaurant, and David Mitchell plays the yogic leader of a mysterious duck farm. Danny DeVito co-stars as Mack’s curmudgeonly, adventure-averse Uncle Dan.
Migration is a film about overcoming your fears and opening yourself up to the world and its opportunities.
