Eric Bana, Isla Fisher, Guy Pearce Voicing Netflix’s Animated ‘Back to the Outback’

Eric Bana, Isla Fisher, Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver, Tim Minchin and Keith Urban have joined the voice cast of Netflix’s animated comedy adventure “‘Back to the Outback,” which will make is global debut in the fall of 2021.

The voice cast will also include Miranda Tapsell, Angus Imrie, Rachel House, Keith Urban, Celeste Barber, Wayne Knight, Aislinn Derbez, Diesel Cash La Torraca and Lachlan Ross Power. Clare Knight (editor of “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” and the Kung Fu Panda trilogy) and Harry Cripps are the co-directors. Daniela Mazzucato produces and Weed Road Pictures’ Akiva Goldsman and Greg Lessans, who developed the story with Cripps, executive produce.

Cripps scripted the story, set in a reptile house where humans gawk at Australia’s deadliest creatures, who plot a daring escape from their zoo to the Outback. Leading the group is Maddie (Fisher), a poisonous snake with a heart of gold, who bands together with a self-assured thorny devil lizard Zoe (Tapsell), a lovelorn hairy spider named Frank (Pearce), and a sensitive scorpion called Nigel (Imrie). When their nemesis — Pretty Boy (Minchin), a cute but obnoxious koala — unexpectedly joins their escape, Maddie and the gang have no choice but to take him with them, pursued by Bana’s zookeeper.

“I have always been touched by stories of hidden beauty,” said Knight. “Maddie is both uniquely beauty and beast, and to get to present that message in comedy is the icing on the cake.”

Cripps said, “Growing up in Australia, I spent a lot of time in the Blue Mountains which has many different types of snakes and spiders, and I always preferred them to the cute cuddly animals, so it’s such a treat to make a film where the heroes are these poisonous but beautiful little creatures. This film is a love letter to Australia’s incredibly diverse and unique wildlife.”

Isla Fisher calls out social media for ‘threatening our planet and democracy’ in advance of ‘Godmothered’ release on Disney Plus

The new Christmas-themed film Godmothered is set to be released on Disney Plus on Dec. 4, but one of the film’s stars, Isla Fisher, feels strongly about the impacts around social media and the concept of “going viral,” one of the themes addressed in the film.

“I think social media, just as a platform, has to just be rethought in a major way,” Fisher said bluntly at a virtual press conference for the film. “It’s spreading conspiracy and hate and lies, and it’s threatening our planet and democracy, and the publishers should abide by…basic practices and standards and not be spreading nonsense, and being a platform for hate groups to join up.”

“I’m a big believer now that we’re on a precipice, we need to get in involved and…stop these big corporations changing the way we all think.”

Fisher’s character in Godmothered, Mackenzie, works at a local news station in Boston and her boss Grant, played by Utkarsh Ambudkar, loves a sensational news story. Mackenzie ends up meeting Eleanor (Jillian Bell), a young fairy godmother-in-training who is on a mission to show that there is still a place for fairy godmothers in the world. Eleanor finds a letter Mackenzie wrote as a 10-year-old and tracks her down to help bring her happiness, only to discover she is now a 40-year-old single mother who lost her husband years earlier.

Jillian Shea Spaeder and Willa Skye play Fisher’s two daughters in Godmother, but Spaeder in particular, has a bit of a different perspective on social media.

“Having grown up on social media though, I can say it is a negative space but also has this beautiful light to it where I’ve seen a lot of people my age and younger who are getting very involved in big topics they should be involved in,” the 18-year-old actor said. “It can be so negative but it also has this beautiful thing that none of us would have ever gotten to experience without it.”

Sky to release Blithe Spirit in cinemas and on Sky Cinema from 15 January

Sky today [Nov 20th] announces the acquisition of Blithe Spirit from STUDIOCANAL UK. The film will be released in cinemas and on Sky Cinema on 15 January across the UK and Ireland.

Blithe Spirit, based on the play by Noël Coward, stars Academy Award® and BAFTA winner Judi Dench (Skyfall, Victoria & Abdul) alongside Dan Stevens (Beauty & The Beast, Legion), Leslie Mann (Blockers, The Comedian), and Isla Fisher (Greed, Nocturnal Animals).

Sarah Wright, Director of Sky Cinema and Acquisitions at Sky UK & Ireland, commented: “2021 is going to be a big year for original film at Sky and what better way to kick it off than with Blithe Spirit? Based on the Noël Coward production, this sparkling comedy is full of fun, frolics and an all-star cast. A great way to banish the January blues!”

Blithe Spirit is a riotous reimagining of Noël Coward’s classic comedy, about love that just won’t die… Best-selling crime novelist Charles (Dan Stevens) is struggling with catastrophic writer’s block and a stressful deadline for his first screenplay. His picture-perfect second wife Ruth (Isla Fisher) is doing her best to keep him focussed in the hope of fulfilling her dream of heading to Hollywood. Charles’ desperate search for inspiration leads him to invite Madame Arcati (Judi Dench), a medium recently exposed as a fraud, to perform a séance in their home. They all get more than they bargained for when Arcati accidentally summons the spirit of his deceased first wife: the fiery and jealous Elvira (Leslie Mann) who embarks on a mission to kill Charles so she can spend eternity with him which leads to an increasingly comical and deadly love triangle.

Directed by Edward Hall (Downton Abbey, Spooks) and adapted by Nick Moorcroft and Meg Leonard (Finding Your Feet, Fisherman’s Friends) and Piers Ashworth (Fisherman’s Friends).

Blithe Spirit, a Sky Original will be released in cinemas and on Sky Cinema from 15 January. The film will also be available on streaming service NOW TV via the Sky Cinema Pass.
