“The kangaroo is hard-edged and unemotional, thinks everything is a bit of a joke, hates authority and all that good Aussie stuff — though it’s very important to me that the movie moves us beyond that,” says Minchin.
 
 
“Perry is an OCD, hyper-controlling, very fearful, very kind little dude compulsively stacking berries all the time. They go on this massive road journey together and Perry has to learn to be brave and Red has to learn to be more caring. It all sounds quite twee but it’s actually very funny. There are lots of laughs in it. The term Larrikin is used, but its definition is actually only obliquely discussed. We never clearly define it, that’s part of the charm of the word — it’s kind of ambiguous.”
 
 
“It’s an Australian story and I’m writing very much as an Australian writing about Australia,” adds Minchin.
 
 
As you’d expect, he will be making some political points along the way. There’s a song called "Proper Aussie", for example. “It’s sung by Howard the crocodile, who is a bureaucratic bully in charge of a bit of river that our heroes have to cross. He sees his job as preventing ‘non-native species’ from spreading. It’s quite fun because we get to talk about fauna issues as well as xenophobia,” says Minchin.

Revision as of 20:14, August 22, 2019

Larrikins is a cancelled[1] film from DreamWorks Animation. The film was to be written by Harry Cripps and produced by Christina Steinberg.[2] It was set for a February 16, 2018 release, before Minchin announced the film's cancellation on March 5, 2017[3].

Had it been made, it would have been the first DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by Universal Pictures, whose parent company NBCUniversal acquired DreamWorks Animation in 2016. This was the second 2018 DreamWorks film to be cancelled, after The Croods 2 (until September 17, 2017, when that sequel was put back into production). Ideas and assets from the film were repurposed for the 2018 DreamWorks short Bilby.

Plot

When Perry, an uptight bilby gets kicked out of his sheltered life of his family burrow, he ventures out and finds himself launched on a musical adventure across the mystical Australian outback. On the way, he must battle an evil army of monsters known as the Syvalionilas, or "Syvas", for short and win the heart of his one true love, a female bilby called Bonnie. He also befriends kangaroo, Red and cane toad, Andrew, who he must team up with in order to save the empire of the wind.
