Larrikins is a cancelled[1] film. The film was to be written by Harry Cripps and produced by Christina Steinberg.[2] It was set for a February 16, 2018 release, before Minchin announced the film's cancellation on March 5, 2017.[3]

Had it been made, it would have been the first DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by Universal Pictures, whose parent company NBCUniversal acquired DreamWorks Animation in 2016. This was the second 2018 DreamWorks Animation film to be cancelled, the other being The Croods 2. After the cancellation of Larrikins and The Croods 2, there will be no DreamWorks Animation films coming out in 2018, making the first year DreamWorks had skipped since 1999.


When an uptight bilby gets kicked out of his sheltered life of his family burrow, he ventures out and finds himself launched on a musical adventure across the mystical Australian outback. On the way, he must battle an evil army of monsters known as the Syvalionilas, or "Syvas", for short and win the heart of his one true love.
