Evolupia is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated fantasy adventure comedy film produced by Gingo Animation for Universal Pictures. It was directed by Gary Hall and produced by Amy McNeill, with Geo G., Michael Wildshill, Audel LaRoque, Terry Ward and Steve Samono serving as executive producers. The film features the voices of Justin Long, Kate McKinnon, Elizabeth Banks, Willem Dafoe, Whoopi Goldberg, and Steve Zahn. The film centers on two teenage tourists named Al (Long) and Caressa (McKinnon), as they visit the ancient kingdom of Evolupia, where a dormant spell put on the kingdom by the wicked sorceress Cerramas (Banks) is concealed inside a chain of forest vines, which, if broken, will unleash its spell upon the kingdom, creating disastrous results. Al unwittingly breaks one of the vines and causes Evolupia to fall under the spell, which will be completed in two days unless Al and Caressa defeat Cerramas.
Evolupia premiered at the Boulder International Film Festival on March 12, 2016, and was released in the United States on April 1, 2016 by Universal Pictures. It received mixed to positive reviews from critics and grossed $315.1 million worldwide on its $70 million budget.
