Toonbox Entertainment and GAMA Entertainment announced that Jackie Chan has been tapped to lend his voice to the animated film Once Upon a Zodiac, as well as serving as executive producer.
The official synopsis for the film reads:
In a mystical, wondrous world populated with the animals of the Zodiac, a group of not-yet-friends are 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.
“We are proud to have Jackie Chan part of this film as an executive producer,” said producer Galen Walker. “We are captivated by Jackie Chan’s talent and the leadership that he brings to our animated film.”
Jackie Chan does have plenty of animated experience, have featured in his own animated series Jackie Chan Adventures along with the likes of Kung Fu Panda, The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, and The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
