Illumination animated adventure comedy directed by Benjamin Renner and Guylo Homsy. Migration (2023) follows the Mallards, a family of ducks. While dad Mack (Kumail Nanjiani) is content to keep his family safe paddling around their New England pond forever, mom Pam (Elizabeth Banks) is eager to shake things up and show their kids, teen son Dax (Caspar Jennings), and duckling daughter Gwen (Tresi Gazal), the whole wide world. After a migrating duck family alights on their pond with thrilling tales of far-flung places, Pam persuades Mack to embark on a family trip, via New York City, to tropical Jamaica. As the Mallards make their way South, their well-laid plans quickly go awry.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Pam: [referring to the flying ducks] Isn’t it beautiful?
Dax: This is awesome.
Pam: Maybe we should go say hi.
Gwen: Dax talked to a girl.
Mack: A girl?
Gwen: He wants to marry her.
Dax: What?! I didn’t say that!
Gwen: You said it with your eyes.
Pam: They must be migrating.
Mack: Migration? What a stupid idea.
Pam: Okay. You’re impossible.
Mack: Because I found a safe place for us to live?
Pam: I want us to get out and see the world.
Mack: What sort of father would I be if I put my young fowl in harm’s way for no reason, except a chance at a Caribbean vacation?
Pam: I don’t want to miss out on life because you’re afraid to leave this pond.
Mack: Here we go! Tail for the torsion.
Mack: Wing deployment.
Mack: Let’s fly.
Pam: Why are we the only birds heading this way?
Mack: What is this place?
Pam: I promised adventure, and this is exactly what I promised.
Pam: We are completely lost. We’re trying to get to Jamaica.
Pigeon Gang Leader: Come on, love birds. It’s this way.
Mack: Woh. We are not flying through this crazy death trap of a city.
Pigeon Gang Leader: Just stay close to me and everything will be alright.
Pigeon Gang Leader: [after getting hit by a bus] I’m okay. Yes. No. I’m okay. We can do this. Ha. Ha. You missed bus!
Pigeon Gang Leader: [after she gets hit by a scooter] Maybe you don’t stick too close.
Mack: What is that?
Delroy: Duck á l’Orange.
Gwen: What’s Duck á l’Orange?
Pigeon Gang Leader: It’s you with l’Orange on top.
Gwen: Ma, can we land?
Pam: You’re old enough to do it in the sky now.
Pam: [to Mack] We have a number two situation.
Gwen: But it’s gross.
Pam: Every bird does it in the sky.
Gwen: What if someone is looking down there?
Pam: No one is looking down there! I told you we are not landing. There is no way we’re landing.
Gwen: [after they’ve landed] Are you sure no one’s watching?
Pam: Gwen Mallard, do it now or we leave without you!
Gwen: Okay. Okay.
Uncle Dan: [as the family is huddled in a tree trunk for shelter] We’re not going to make it, are we?
Dax: Uncle Dan!
