    Culver City, CA (July 30, 2007) – Get ready to ride the wildest, wettest wave ever, as Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases Surf’s Up, this summer’s biggest animated adventure from Sony Pictures Animation, on DVD, Blu-ray™ High-Def and PSP™ on October 9, 2007. Kevin Crust of The Los Angeles Times raves “Surf’s Up definitely hangs 10," and Peter Travers of Rolling Stone says that Surf’s Up offers "…waves of thrills and laughs." Starring the vocal talents of Shia LaBeouf (Transformers, Disturbia, Constantine, I Robot), Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski, Seabiscuit), Zooey Deschanel (Elf, Almost Famous) and Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory), Surf’s Up is filled with adventure and humor the whole family can enjoy. The film also features the talents of James Woods, Mario Cantone, Diedrich Bader, Sal Masekela and professional surfers Kelly Slater and Rob Machado.

    Surf’s Up bonus features include the all-new animated short “The ChubbChubbs Save XMAS,” (featuring the characters from the Academy Award®-winning short film) as well as three exciting interactive games. With the “Create Your Own Surfboard” game, players can create a custom surfboard by selecting their own board shape, color and style, and then see if Cody can ride the killer wave on the custom surfboard. The “Lava Surf” game challenges players to twist and turn their way thru the lava tubes while avoiding hot lava and other obstacles throughout the course, and the “Whale Hopping” game lets players navigate Chicken Joe across the ocean by jumping whale to whale.

    The Surf’s Up DVD also includes a three-part documentary about the technical achievements in making the film titled “Not a Drop of Water,” a music video of “Lose Myself” by Ms. Lauryn Hill, filmmakers’ commentary, and much more! This great addition to every family’s DVD collection is priced at $28.95 SLP for DVD, $38.95 SLP for Blu-ray and $28.95 SLP for PSP. Surf’s Up has an order due date of September 6, 2007.

    Synopsis:
    Surf’s Up goes behind the scenes of the high-octane world of competitive penguin surfing. Inspired by his hero, the legendary wave rider Big Z, Cody Maverick leaves his family and his town of Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off – Cody’s first pro competition. Cody believes that winning will bring him the admiration and respect he deserves. But when he unexpectedly comes face to face with Geek, a washed up old surfer, Cody begins to understand that the greatest champion isn’t always the one who comes in first.
