More Detail:

BIGFOOT FAMILY is the sequel to SON OF BIGFOOT and is streaming on Netflix.

The movie opens as Bigfoot’s son, Adam, gets ready for school in the morning. Because his father has the power to talk to animals, heal himself and use his big feet to run fast, Adam has all the same powers.

Adam lives with a raccoon, squirrel, bear, bird, and other forest animals that his father knew while he lived in the wild. Now back in the real world, Bigfoot is a sensation. He’s invited to a news broadcast and interviewed. Although he’s a celebrity and people are trying to make money off him, Bigfoot just wants to make the world a better place.

Amidst all the fan mail, Bigfoot finds a letter from a group protesting a large oil company drilling in Alaska. Bigfoot feels like it’s his destiny to help and heads to Alaska without his family.

With the help of Adam, Bigfoot grows the public’s awareness of what the oil company is doing in Alaska. However, Bigfoot goes missing. Adam, his mother, and two of Bigfoot’s furry friends jump in the family van to go to Alaska and save Bigfoot. As they search for Bigfoot, they could stumble across another major discovery that could take down the oil company for good.
