Toonz Entertainment has dropped a new teaser of the upcoming animated feature JG and the BC Kids. The new teaser features a schoolboy and a young science whiz who is trapped inside a fractal world, as well as JG, the female superhero and her band of darling dinosaurs who will mentor and encourage kids to believe in themselves.
Written by Janet Hubert and Yvette Kaplan, the movie has a star-studded cast and crew with Emmy Award-winning composer Wendell Hanes helming the music. Actors Raven Goodwin, Cheryl Alexander, Ezra Knight, Jasmine Hanes, Blaze Berdahl, Ahmad Maksoud, and Joey Taranto lend voice to the main characters while Hubert herself voices the narrator and several other characters. Hubert is an established voice actress who has voiced many commercials including the voice of BAYER. The movie is directed by Ron Myrick, Indra Narayan Datta, and Antony Leo.
Based on Hubert’s book A Sneaker Feature, JG and the BC Kids will bring street smart and book smart kids together to create life smart kids. JG, the female superhero, and her band of darling dinosaurs will mentor and encourage children to believe in themselves.
Targeted at five-nine years old, the movie has been produced in vibrant 2D animation with a blend of the hip as well as poignant, positive music that will be loved by parents and kids alike. The pre-production work of the project has been completed at Toonz’s Ireland-based Emmy Award-winning studio Telegael.
JG and the BC Kids is slated to be released in March/April 2022. The movie will be marketed worldwide by Toonz Entertainment, a subsidiary of Toonz Media Group, led by chief sales and marketing officer Bruno Zarka.
