The Bad Guys Plot: What to expect?
Not much is known about what the plot will be like but according to the filmmakers, the upcoming animated movie will have a bit of a rip-off genre similar to the film ‘Shrek’ and ‘Kung Fu Panda.’ So, our guesses are the storyline will be a combination of fairy tales and some actions. The movie will centre the five criminals who are anthropomorphic animals that love to commit robbery. Their names are Ms Tarantula, Mr Piranha, Mr Snake, Mr Shark and Mr Wolf. However, one day they decided to leave their past behind as criminals and chose to do good deeds that will benefit everyone. We have no idea what’s in their mind and what they will do next but whatever they have decided on, it is going to be a tough challenge. Will they be able to take on the challenges? Or will they go back to their old ways?
Nonetheless, there’s scant detail on the upcoming movie storyline of The Bad Guys, and all we can do now is wait for the movie to arrive on the screens and watch what happens.
