BACK TO THE OUTBACK Exclusive Video Interview With Directors Clare Knight And Harry Cripps

Next month a new Australian animated feature film is coming to Netflix called Back to the Outback and we got the opportunity to speak exclusively with directors Harry Cripps and Clare Knight about the movie!

In precisely one month Netflix will be releasing their newest animated flick, titled Back to the Outback. Starring Isla Fisher, Guy Pearce, Eric Bana, and many other A-list performers, the animated musical comedy follows several "deadly" Australian animals who escape from the zoo on a quest for their true home.

Back to the Outback has locked in a December 10th premiere date to hit the streamer and looks to have the most significant appeal on fans of projects like Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda - both projects which director Clare Knight has credits for working on. When we had the opportunity to speak with her and her co-director for this film, we jumped at the chance to learn more about the outback-themed adventure.

We spoke with both directors Clare Knight and Harry Cripps about the animals they chose for the film, the musical aspects, and plenty of other bits. You can hear or watch the full interview below as we've included both the audio and video versions of our chat, and make sure you check out the trailer underneath it!

What do you guys think of our chat with directors Harry Cripps and Clare Knight? Will you be checking out Back to the Outback when it hits Netflix next month?

Regardless of your thoughts, be sure to check out the official trailer and synopsis for the film below and as always, share your thoughts in the usual spot!


 

Tired of being locked in a reptile house where humans gawk at them like they’re monsters, a ragtag group of Australia’s deadliest creatures plot a daring escape from their zoo to the Outback, a place where they’ll fit in without being judged for their scales and fangs. Leading the group is Maddie (Isla Fisher), a poisonous snake with a heart of gold, who bands together with a self-assured Thorny Devil lizard Zoe (Miranda Tapsell), a lovelorn hairy spider Frank (Guy Pearce), and a sensitive scorpion Nigel (Angus Imrie).


But when their nemesis — Pretty Boy (Tim Minchin), a cute but obnoxious koala — unexpectedly joins their escape, Maddie and the gang have no choice but to take him with them. So begins a hair-raising and hilarious road trip across Australia, as they are pursued by a zookeeper Chaz (Eric Bana), and his adventure-seeking mini-me (Diesel La Torraca).


Directed by Clare Knight and Harry Cripps, and also featuring the voices of Rachel House, Keith Urban, Celeste Barber, Wayne Knight, Lachlan Ross Power, and Jacki Weaver, BACK TO THE OUTBACK is an animated adventure that proves just because something’s different, doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful. They might look dangerous, but these wildly misunderstood creatures have hearts of gold — and they’re breaking out of captivity on a quest to find a home.


Back to the Outback debuts on Netflix on December 10th.
