Based On The Story Of Noah’s Ark
The story of Noah’s ark is one of the most well-known Bible stories. In it, God commands Noah to build an ark and fill it with two animals of each species before a huge flood comes and covers the earth. The ark then remains sailing on the waves for forty days and forty nights. In the end Noah and his family get out of the ark and repopulate the earth.
It is often mistakenly thought that this story is only related to Christianity and Judaism when, in fact, it is a story common to many people, as it is also present in the Quran. Although the details of the story differ depending on which tradition it comes from, the overall message is one of hope and rebirth.
The story of Noah’s Ark has been a popular source of inspiration for many artists and writers over the centuries.
The upcoming new animated film “The Ark and The Aardvark” is just one example of how this timeless tale can be adapted for modern audiences.
Writers Philip LaZebnik and Glen Dolman have reimagined the tale of the story of Noah’s Ark as a fun and humorous adventure. Director John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda, Shrek) brings the story to life with vibrant animation.
“It tells a story everyone is familiar with. We envision it as a border-crossing project that has yet to be done in animation, in the style of ‘Ice Age,’ ‘The Incredibles’ or ‘Open Season,’” said Keith Kjarval, one of the producers of the film alongside Kurt Rauer, Cecil Kramer, Ben Ruffman, and Steve Goldstein from United Pictures.
Meet Gilbert & Co
The animated feature “The Ark and the Aardvark” is a charming story of an unlikely hero. Gilbert, an outcast aardvark, becomes the reluctant leader of a group of misfit animals who must be led to the ark before the flood. It’s not going to be easy! Gilbert isn’t sure he’s up to the task, but along the journey, Gilbert discovers he has the inner strength and ingenuity to lead all the animals through many challenges. Along the way, they all learn important lessons about cooperation and teamwork. “The Ark and the Aardvark” is a fun and entertaining story that will delight viewers of all ages.

Unified Pictures’ upcoming animated film “The Ark and the Aardvark” is starting to come together, and we’ve learned that Aubrey Plaza has joined the team to voice Brain, a spider.
Miles Teller, Jenny Slate, Rob Riggle, Stephen Merchant, and Craig Robinson
The cast is very important given the number of animals in the story. Here are the principal actors who will interpret the voices of the characters in the story:
- Miles Teller (Fantastic Four, Insurgent) as Gilbert, the main protagonist
- Jenny Slate (Mary) as Mitzy, a narcoleptic ostrich
- Rob Riggle (Dumb & Dumber To), as The Todd, an Elephant
- Stephen Merchant (The Outlaws) as Croc, a crocodile
- Craig Robinson (This Is The End) as Clyde, a bullfrog
“Miles, Aubrey, Jenny, Chris, Rob, and Stephen are such comedic geniuses,” Kjarval said. “Under the creative direction of John Stevenson, the unique characters of our film will spring to life on screen and make a perfect film for both kids and adults alike.”
Although there is no trailer at the moment as the film is in production, I’m looking forward to the release of “The Ark And The Aardvark” in April 2023. Stay tuned for the latest news! I’ll be sure to post a trailer as soon as it’s available.
