Surf's Up 2 Press Release & Trailer

From Sony Pictures Association:

Sony Pictures Association and WWE Studios debuted today the brand new trailer for SURF'S UP 2: WAVEMANIA, the animated sequel to SURF'S UP, the 2007 Oscar animated comedy about surfing penguins.

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.

SURF'S UP 2: WAVEMANIA will be released by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in early 2017.
