US Trailer for Animated Comedy 'Son of Bigfoot' from nWave Pictures
"There's one more thing… you can talk to animals." Viva Pictures has debuted a new full-length official US trailer for an animated film titled The Son of Bigfoot, produced by StudioCanal in France, and animated by nWave Pictures in Belgium. The film is aimed towards younger kids and families, and is about a boy who goes "on an epic and daring quest to uncover the mystery behind his long-lost dad, only to find out that he is none other than the legendary Bigfoot." Surprise! Don't confuse this with the other animated bigfoot movie coming out this year - Smallfoot - which is made by Warner Bros. The voice cast for Son of Bigfoot includes Cinda Adams, Mari Devon, and Kirk Thornton. This really looks really bad, and I always wonder how animation this awful still gets made, because it seems like no one even tried to make a good movie. Oh well.
Official US trailer (+ intl. poster) for Jeremy Degruson & Ben Stassen's The Son of Bigfoot, on YouTube:
Teenage outsider Adam sets out on an epic and daring quest to uncover the mystery behind his long-lost dad, only to find out that he is none other than the legendary Bigfoot! He has been hiding deep in the forest for years to protect himself and his family from HairCo., a giant corporation eager to run scientific experiments with his special DNA. As father and son start making up for lost time after the boy's initial disbelief, Adam soon discovers that he too is gifted with superpowers beyond his imagination. But little do they know, HairCo. is on their tail as Adam's traces have led them to Bigfoot! Son of Bigfoot is directed by animation filmmakers Jeremy Degruson & Ben Stassen, both of whom directed the film Thunder and the House of Magic previously. The screenplay is written by Bob Barlen and Cal Brunker. The Son of Bigfoot first opened in the UK last August. Viva will release the film in select theaters + on VOD starting May 4th.

sorry, i cannot agree with "really really really bad" or "animation that awful" - i mean, out there, a lot of animations are much weaker than this one, so i dont think it deserves this kind of presentation. I am not saying it is good, but come on, there are a lot of other much worse animations than this one. I would say this is acceptable.

And I hate hate hate the argument that "well just because there's worse things than this, this isn't bad." Well, maybe this IS bad, and there are tons of worse things - which I agree with you on that point. But that doesn't mean this is a good? Seems like an odd defense... Did you work on this film or something? This is the kind of response that usually only comes from people who are so close to the film they overly-defend it instead of just admit the honest truth that it's pretty shoddy. Even though, yes, there are still other worse animated films this isn't much better...

Looks bad and being critical is part of the gig, Bruce.

Weird idea, to be honest. Bad government against a good Bigfoot family? Sometimes I'm glad for not being a kid anymore ...

Well,for such a bad animation film, this little movie did very well. Upon release, the film received positive reviews from critics and grossed $50 million worldwide against its $20 million budget. As of March 2018, the film had topped 8 million admissions worldwide. It is still playing in a number of territories. source: Wikipedia @Alex - guess this answers your question " I always wonder how animation this awful still gets made" - because it makes money. Also,did you see it? Did you hear if maybe kids liked it or not? Or was your "really bad" comments just based on the trailer? Also, to answer your question: i had nothing to do with this film. It was just an honest opinion, i just felt your comments regarding this movie were just your own feelings towards it. That's all.

Also, i respect your opinion, dont get me wrong. I really am not trying to defend this movie, it is also true it is not one of the better animations out there.

It's not as bad as it looks. I saw it three weeks ago (in Spain was premiered in february) with my 2 y/o son, and he really enjoyed it more than other recents films like The Smurfs or Early Man. Obviously, the conflicts are so simple, but it works for little kids, the animals are nice to see and it has a strong message against big pharma companies that is well deserved.

Imported the 3d Blu-ray from Brazil—really enjoyed the film. The animation is actually quite good, and film makes fantastic use of 3D—lots of depth and some really impressive pop out moments. It has a nice story, and a nice mix of action and humor. I like how someone who hasn’t even seen the film is giving it a negative review and commenting on the quality of the animation based solely on the trailer.
