Writer/director/producer Tyler Perry makes his first foray into family animation with the release of  Madea’s Tough Love arriving on DVD January 20. The film will be available on Digital HD one week earlier starting tomorrow, January 13.

Having conquered stage and screen, Perry has now turned his attention to creating entertaining programs specifically for families to enjoy together. In Tyler Perry’s first animated film, fans of Madea can now watch all of their favorite characters including Madea, Uncle Joe and Aunt Bam in a whole new way. The always larger-than-life Madea gets herself into even more over the top and outrageous situations—all in the name of helping children save their youth center.

After a hilarious run-in with the law, Madea is sentenced to community service. Determined to do good for the ’hood, she enlists Aunt Bam and Uncle Joe to try and save the Moms Mabley Youth Center from being shut down. With her trademark sass and wisdom, Madea rallies the local kids to make a stand.

Including a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film and a sketch-to-screen storyboard comparison showing Tyler Perry in the recording studio voicing his characters, the Madea’s Tough Love DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
