Following its U.K. premiere as a Sky Original last May, Riverdance: The Animated Adventure is ready to bow on Netflix, joining a slew of tooned up titles hitting the streamer next month when it launches on January 14. Co-produced by U.K. animation studio Aniventure and River Productions and brought to life by the artists at Cinesite, the film translates the global stage phenomenon into a magical family adventure.
Riverdance: The Animated Adventure follows an Irish boy named Keegan (voiced by Sam Hardy) and a Spanish girl named Moya (Hannah Herman Cortes) as they journey into the mythical world of the legendary Megaloceros Giganteus, who teach them to appreciate Riverdance as a celebration of life. The film also stars Lilly Singh, Jermaine Fowler and Pauline McLynn and features a brand-new single by Irish musical performer Lyra. The movie is directed by Eamonn Butler and Dave Rosenbaum.
