Original Force Animation announces the most recent cast and talent additions to its debut animated feature, Duck Duck Goose, a family comedy due out in 2017. Joining the voice talent roster are actor, writer and comedian Jim Gaffigan and director, writer and actor Carl Reiner. Original Force has also signed on composer Mark Isham (Crash) to score the film.
Duck Duck Goose is centered on the most hilariously unlikely family. When rebellious but lovable goose bachelor Peng (voiced by Gaffigan) narrowly rescues two young orphaned ducklings, Chi and Chao (Zendaya and Lance Lim), from an eccentric yet deadly cat named Banzou (Greg Proops), the trio forms a makeshift family as they set out on a dangerous overland journey to return to their flocks while avoiding Banzou and other predators.
Christopher Jenkins (Home) directs from a screenplay he wrote with Rob Muir. Previously announced cast members also include Stephen Fry, Jennifer Grey, Molly Shannon, Diedrich Bader and Rick Overton. Carl Reiner will voice a wise and loyal turtle named Larry.
Duck Duck Goose is the first of three animated feature projects currently in production at Original Force Animation — one of China’s most successful digital animation studios, which last year opened an L.A. production and development office lead by Penney Finkelman Cox and Sandra Rabins.
