Cory is suddenly thrust outdoors, into an underground world of plant-lovers, secret greenhouses, and rogue hardware store employees who will stop at nothing to save the dying plants of the city. When a mob of negligent plant owners form to hunt down Plantman, Cory’s new allegiances are tested and he’s forced to answer a big question: how far would you go to save a dying plant?

In collaboration with Tideline and Mountain Top Pictures, we bring the audience into a world of plants, helping people reconnect with what’s important through The Dress Up Gang’s lens.”

“It’s an absolute delight to partner with The Dress Up Gang team on their very first movie,” said Hannah Pillemer, EVP and Head of Creative & Production of Tideline parent, MarVista Entertainment. “Frankie, Cory, Robb, Donny and the whole gang are a comedic force who are shaping the boundaries of contemporary comedy, which falls right in line with the kind of imaginative entertainment Tideline produces.”
