Cheech & Chong have worn many hats over the years — or, in Tommy Chong’s case, bandanas — but this April, the cannabis-inspired comics are back with a completely new look… cartoon animation.
That’s right, the dubious (or is it doobie-ous?) duo are releasing a new feature-length film, appropriately titled Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie, and it’s sure to include plenty of blunt humor, mellow drives, and monumental munchies to satisfy all of your 4/20 cravings.
If you want to attend the premiere for the movie, good luck; the “green carpet” event on April 17th at the legendary Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles is an invite-only VIP party. But fear not idle stoners, the sultans of the sticky icky just released the film’s soundtrack album on April 9th (via Ode Sounds & Visuals), and with song titles including ”Cheech & Chong Anthem (WEed Are the World)” and “Medical Marijuana Blues,” the record is sure to get you buzzed without even having to leave the couch.
For all newcomers to the comedians, prepare yourself for an epic trip (literally) with this record. It features nine original tracks produced by legendary and original Ode Records producer Lou Adler, along with support credits from Dominic Kelly, Eric D. Chambers, Branden Chambers, and Paris Chong. You can get the full inside scoop on the album from Cheech Martin and Tommy Chong themselves over on Spotify, where the duo will be releasing special commentary for each track.
If you’re hankering for a copy of the movie though, mark your calendars for April 23rd when the DVD and Blu Ray versions of the film hit retailers. In the meantime, be on the lookout for the music video for “Cheech & Chong Anthem (WEed Are the World),” which drops April 15th and features star-studded animated cameos from the likes of Kid Cudi, Whoopi Goldberg, Wiz Kalifa, George Lopez, Bill Maher, B-Real, Willie Nelson, Zach Galifianakis, and many more.
Catch all of the upcoming release dates from the stonerific comics after the jump, they’re guaranteed to make your 4/20 soundtrack truly dope.
