Are you a fan of “The White Lotus” and jonesing for the next season? Well, good news! No, the third season of “The White Lotus” isn’t arriving on HBO anytime soon (the SAG strike delayed things), but instead, you can watch the next project from writer Mike White. There’s only one catch—instead of the dark comedy and wild characters of “The White Lotus,” you have to watch a film about a group of ducks who want to go to Jamaica. That’s right, Mike White is the writer behind the new animated film, “Migration.”
As seen in the trailer for “Migration,” the film follows the Mallard family, a group of ducks who are desperate for some adventure. They want to go to Jamaica and live the dream there. However, on their migration down there, they make a stop in New York City and find themselves in all sorts of wacky hijinks.
The film features the voice talents of Kumail Nanjiani, Elizabeth Banks, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key, David Mitchell, Carol Kane, Caspar Jennings, Tresi Gazal, and Danny DeVito. “Migration” is directed by Benjamin Renner, who is probably best known as the filmmaker behind the Oscar-nominated animated film, “Ernest & Celestine.”
“Migration” is set to debut in theaters on December 23. You can watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
The Mallard family is in a bit of rut. While dad Mack is content to keep his family safe paddling around their New England pond forever, mom Pam is eager to shake things up and show their kids—teen son Dax and duckling daughter Gwen—the whole wide world. After a migrating duck family alights on their pond with thrilling tales of far-flung places, Pam persuades Mack to embark on a family trip, via New York City, to tropical Jamaica. As the Mallards make their way South for the winter, their well-laid plans quickly go awry. The experience will inspire them to expand their horizons, open themselves up to new friends and accomplish more than they ever thought possible, while teaching them more about each other—and themselves—than they ever imagined.
