After a lifetime of pulling legendary heists, five notorious bad guys—Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Shark and Ms. Tarantula—attempt their most challenging job yet…going good. Nobody has ever failed so hard at trying to be good as 'The Bad Guys', an all-new animated feature film from DreamWorks Animation.

Based on the bestselling Scholastic blockbuster book series by Aaron Blabey, which has more than 8.2 million copies in print worldwide, 'The Bad Guys' is directed by Pierre Perifel (director, DWA award-winning short 'Bilby'; animator, the 'Kung Fu Panda' films), making his feature-directing debut, from a script by Etan Cohen ('Tropic Thunder', 'Get Hard') and Hilary Winston (NBC’s 'Community' and ABC’s 'Happy Endings'). The film is produced by Damon Ross (co-producer, 'Nacho Libre') and Rebecca Huntley (co-producer 'Abominable', associate producer, 'The Boss Baby'). The executive producers are Blabey, Cohen, Patrick Hughes and Jeff Berg.
