'My Life As A Zucchini' English Voice Cast Revealed
The distributor has now announced the lead cast of the English-language version of the film and revealed that it will debut at 2017's Sundance Film Festival in January. The theatrical release will follow in February in both dubbed and original language versions.
The cast will feature Will Forte, Nick Offerman, Ellen Page and Amy Sedaris. It's fairly typical casting for GKIDS, as the distributor has a habit of attracting talented actors to voice their dubs. They pick established names, but favour people appropriate for the roles over shoving A-listers into roles for the sake of it. Some bigger studios should take note...
The film follows a young boy nicknamed Zucchini (Courgette in the original) who moves to a foster home following his mother's death. There he befriends a police officer called Raymond and begins to search to find a new family of him own. The film has enchanted audiences everywhere it has played so far, so we can't wait to bring you more on this early in 2017.
