Gabriel and the Wacky Pack 3 is an upcoming 2017 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Geo LTD. Animation and released by Universal Pictures. It is the third installment in the Gabriel and the Wacky Pack franchise, which was loosely based on The Wacky Pack comic book series, and the sequel to the 2014 film Gabriel and the Wacky Pack 2. Directed by Frans Vischer, co-directed by Craig Kellman, and written by Tom Wheeler, the film features the reprised voices of Geo G., E.G. Daily, Jake T. Austin, and Nick Offerman from the first two films, Jenny Slate from the first film, Emma Thompson from the second film, as well as the new voices of Jason Drucker (replacing Zachary Gordon), Jacob Hopkins (replacing Nicky Jones), Odeya Rush, Will Arnett, Janelle Pierzina, and Andy Samberg.

The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on November 26, 2017, by Universal Pictures.

Plot

Three months after the events of Gabriel and the Wacky Pack 2, Gabriel, Roge, Leno, Cole, Loy and the Lars hear that Gabriel's parents Marvin and Celia are expecting to get married, thus making Celia Gabriel's step-mother. Then Leno begins to wish for a family of his own, and "adopts" a blue baby clay blob who has an ability to morph into things that he finds under the bushes and calls Aqua. However, Gabriel and his pals face a problem that they never expected: Roge's old nemesis Blues returns and controls Seth Oram, a new kid at Gabriel's old school, to speak in an annoying voice to take over The Wacky Pack's voices, and Gabriel finally gets a crush on a beautiful girl named Megan Brown.

Cast

Production

On July 15, 2014, during the post-production of Gabriel and the Wacky Pack 2Universal Pictures and Geo LTD. Animation announced a third installment in the Gabriel and the Wacky Pack series, with Tom Wheeler, the writer of Puss in Boots (2011), writing the screenplay. On December 23, 2014, Geo LTD. announced that Frans Vischer, a storyboard artist on the first two Gabriel and the Wacky Pack films, will direct the third film in his directorial debut, with John Cohen returning to produce it. It was also announced that Zachary Gordon will not return to voice Gabriel in the third film as his voice has deepened since the releases of the first two films. In February 2015, Isla Fisher, who voiced Lily Stampla from the previous film, has expressed interest in reprising her role or voicing other characters.

In September 2015, it was reported that Geo G., E.G. Daily, and Jake T. Austin will reprise their roles as Roge, Leno, and Loy, with Jacob Hopkins replacing Nicky Jones as Cole. On December 21, 2015, it has been announced that Andy Samberg, a newcomer to the series, will join the cast. In March 2016, it was announced that Jason Drucker would voice Gabriel, replacing Gordon. In addition to Drucker, Jenny Slate was revealed to return the role as Blues from the first film, with Janelle Pierzina of Big Brother fame joining the cast as Nurse Smith. Nick Offerman confirmed that his character Marvin Garza will return. It was also confirmed that Emma Thompson will return as Celia.

In December 2016, it was announced that Odeya Rush would play Megan Brown, Gabriel's love interest, and Will Arnett would play Freddie Clark, Blues' new assistant, with Alan Tudyk from the first film returning.

Music

In April 2016, it was reported that Heitor Pereira, who composed the score for the first two films, would not return to compose the score for this film due to "creative differences". By August 2016, he was replaced by Mark Mothersbaugh of the band Devo, who composed the score for the Wacky Pack television series ran from 1993 to 1997, Gabriel and the Wacky Pack Shorts, and MYCUN. In January 2017, it was announced that Josh Mancell would co-compose the score with Mothersbaugh, making it the first film in the series to be scored by two composers instead of just one.

Release

The film was initially set for a November 18, 2016, release. However, in April 2015, Universal postponed the film's release date to December 1, 2017. In June 2016, the release date was pushed up one week to November 26, 2017.

Marketing

The official teaser trailer for the film was released on March 2, 2017 and was later attached to Imaginary Animals the following day.

Their licence started in 2016 and they will design and develop products immediately with initial products arriving on shelves in 2017.

A tie-in video game has been announced to accompany the film's release. It will be developed by Criterion Games. As Geo LTD. no longer develops and publishes video games after they closed down Geo LTD. Interactive, Electronic Arts will publish the tie-in game.
