Ring in the holiday season and get ready to laugh-out-loud with an all-out prank battle the whole family can enjoy, in the hilarious comedy, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA, now available to own on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on December 22, 2020 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. On Digital is available since December 15, 2020!
Based on Robert Kimmel Smith’s multi-award-winning beloved children’s book of the same name, the film follows a series of escalating shenanigans that ensue when a grandfather, played by Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, moves in with his daughter, forcing his grandson, role of Oakes Fegley, to begrudgingly give up his bedroom. Packed with heart and hysterical hijinks from start to finish, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA is the perfect “family-friendly comedy” (Pete Hammond, Deadline) everyone can enjoy during the holiday and beyond.
Sixth-grader Peter is pretty much your average kid—he likes gaming, hanging with his friends and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather Ed moves in with Peter’s family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom. Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won’t go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences.
Alongside De Niro and Fegley is a top-notch cast including Academy Award® nominee Uma Thurman, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin, Golden Globe® winner Jane Seymour, Laura Marano and Academy Award® winner Christopher Walken that bring even more laughs throughout the mischievously funny and charming film. From director Tim Hill with a script by Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember, THE WAR WITH GRANDPA is sure to entertains audiences of all ages.
