Cory Edwards was born on August 21, 1968 in Anderson, Indiana, USA. He is a director, screenwriter and stand-up comedian best known for the animated sleeper hit, Hoodwinked!. Throughout his career, he had written scripts and stories for a couple of other projects, such as Hoodwinked Too! and Escape from Planet Earth. After the release of his first film, he was contacted by the Jim Henson Company to work on a Dark Crystal sequel. However he decided to be at the helm for their planned Fraggle Rock film adaptation instead. Neither project made it past development phase, and Edwards stuck with creating web cartoons from 2011-2012. On 2013, he began collaborating with Big Idea on most of the remaining episodes of VeggieTales, where he would work as a writer. Edwards wrote from 2013 until 2015, when the final episode Noah's Ark was completed.
