Vudu, the Walmart-owned VOD service, has announced that Adventure Force 5, produced by Studio71 US, will premiere December 19.
The family feature film, written and directed by Michael Younesi, stars Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Ernie Hudson, Dylan Arnold, Tate Birchmore, Donald Bowen, Lexee Davis, Marleik “Mar Mar” Walker and Kartik Ash.
Adventure Force 5 follows video game-and-comics-obsessed brothers Joey and Jack Zapata (Bowen and Birchmore) as they and their friends embark on an adventure when a mysterious swarm of flying creatures, Terra Borgs, invade their quiet beach town. Arnold (Halloween, Mudbound) plays the egomaniac young genius who invented the creatures, while Walker, Davis and Ash make up the brothers’ friends as a genius inventor, spunky skater and martial artist. The kids use their skills, knowledge of sci-fi and homemade gadgets, inspired by Walmart’s Adventure Force toy brand, to fight back.
Studio71 US produced the film, with Reza Izad, Dan Weinstein and Adam Boorstin serving as executive producers, and Michael Schreiber serving as producer.
This is the second Studio71 production for Vudu, with series Mr. Mom, a revival of the hit 1980’s feature film, launching earlier this year.
Adventure Force 5 will be available for free on Vudu on December 19.
