BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 13, 2006-- WHAT: From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker John A. Davis ("Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius") and producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman ("The Polar Express"), the animated family adventure "The Ant Bully" tells a witty and heartwarming story about a 10-year-old boy who embarks on a remarkable journey. New in town, friendless and tormented by a neighborhood bully, young Lucas Nickle has been taking out his frustration on the innocent ant hill in his yard. But one day the ants retaliate. Using a magic potion, they shrink Lucas down to ant size and sentence him to live like an ant in their colony. In this strange new world Lucas will learn important lessons about friendship, get a whole new perspective on life and ultimately find the courage to stand up for himself.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Playtone Production, in association with DNA Productions: Julia Roberts, Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep, Paul Giamatti, Regina King, Bruce Campbell and Lily Tomlin star in "The Ant Bully," written for the screen and directed by John A.
