Veteran actor will also join voice cast on Toonbox Entertainment and GAMA Entertainment animated feature now in production.
TORONTO -- Toonbox Entertainment and GAMA Entertainment have announced that Jackie Chan has been tapped as an executive producer and cast to voice in their upcoming production, Once Upon a Zodiac, which is currently in production.
Galen Walker, one of the film’s producers, said, “We are proud to have Jackie Chan part of this film as an executive producer. We are captivated by Jackie Chan’s talent and the leadership that he brings to our animated film.”
Set in a mystical, wondrous world populated with the animals of the Zodiac, Once Upon a Zodiac centers around a group of not-yet-friends brought together by fate. The strength of the Tiger champion and the brains of the Rat genius are nothing compared to the street smarts and courage of a plucky orphaned Dragon. This unlikely trio set out to find missing parents, solve a growing mystery, and help the Grand Council conquer chaos and distrust to usher their world – and ours – into a bright new future.
Sook Yhun, associate producer, added, “Having worked closely with Jackie Chan, we believe he brings just the perfect touch of voice talent to Once Upon a Zodiac.”
Known for his work on international hits like the Rush Hour franchise, Jackie Chan is a recognized veteran in animation. He notably voiced Mr. Feng in The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature and has been featured in all the Kung Fu Panda franchise films as well. In addition, he voiced in the Chinese editions of the Walt Disney Animation Studios production, Mulan, and in his own animated hit series, Jackie Chan Adventures.
Once Upon a Zodiac is a Toonbox Entertainment and GAMA Entertainment production with Walker and Hong Kim producing. Chan serves as the film’s executive producer.
