WWE Studios announces new animated movie – “Surf’s Up 2: WaveMania”

Sony Pictures Animation and WWE Studios announced today an animated sequel to “Surf’s Up,” the 2007 Academy Award-nominated action-comedy about surfing penguins. The companies are co-financing and producing the movie, which is expected to release in 2017, in time for the original film’s 10th anniversary. “Surf’s Up 2: WaveMania” will be distributed by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment with WWE Studios providing marketing support by leveraging its extensive multi-platform reach.

Cody Maverick, hungry for a new challenge, convinces an infamous big-wave-riding crew known as The Hang 5, voiced by WWE Superstars John Cena, The Undertaker, Triple H, WWE Diva Paige and Mr. McMahon, to let him join them on their journey to a mysterious surf spot known as The Trenches, where, legend has it, they’ll find the biggest waves in the world. Cody soon discovers that the life he left behind might be more heroic than what any death-defying wave has to offer. Genndy Tartakovsky’s protégé Henry Yu (story artist on “Sym-Bionic Titan” and both “Hotel Transylvania” feature films) makes his directorial debut with this project, which is produced by Michelle Wong (production manager on “Hotel Transylvania 2”) and features computer animation from Rainmaker Entertainment Inc. Abdul Williams (“Lottery Ticket”) is writing the screenplay.

“We are thrilled to be working with Sony Pictures Animation to bring Cody Maverick back to audiences for more adventures, paired with our WWE Superstars in what promises to be a fun animated film for the entire family,” said Michael Luisi, WWE Studios President.

“WWE has a proven track record with family audiences, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with them and dive back into the fun world of our surfing penguins,” adds Kristine Belson, President, Sony Pictures Animation.

NY Toy Fair 2016: Mattel’s WWE Figures – Elite, Zombies, Basic – VIDEO

One of the lines that I collect with a rabid fever is Mattel’s WWE line. The company has had the license since 2009 and their figures continue to be solid. At NY Toy Fair 2016, there was not much new to show unfortunately, as most of the prototypes on display were of figures that were already out or about to come out. However, there were a few surprises that made me very happy.

Aside from the new elites and basic figures, we also got our first chance to see the Defining Moments exclusive Chris Jericho, as well as a new classic style Sting with an American jacket. The coolest item had to be the world debut of their WWE Zombies line, which includes John Cena, Triple H, Paige, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and The Undertaker in an undead style.
