Steve Buscemi Joins Khumba Cast
Stuart Forrest, CEO of Triggerfish Animation, adds “We are continuously impressed with the amount of gifted actors that our film has attracted. Buscemi brings a unique skill set to Khumba and the voice work he’s recorded gives us a great deal of humor in the film. Anika Noni Rose likewise brings alive her character in a way that not many could.”
“Steve Buscemi was the original reference when we were first developing the character, so to have him actually voice the part is just incredible,” says writer and director, Silverston. “Anika Noni Rose joins fellow Princess and the Frog actress, Jen Cody who voices one of the other zebras and it's fantastic to have both actresses in the same herd, so to speak,” says co-writer, Delle Donne.
Noeltner’s CMG will be presenting the film in Cannes. The CMG team going to Cannes includes Dene Anderberg, Agatha Altarovici and Daniel Bort and their Cannes sales office will be located in the Palais des Festivals – Lerins S.15 from May 14-24th.
