David Tennant and Ariyon Bakare Among New Cast Members to Voice Characters in Animated Feature THE AMAZING MAURICE
David Tennant, Ariyon Bakare, and Rob Brydon will join previously announced stars Emilia Clarke and Hugh Laurie as voiced characters in the upcoming feature animation The Amazing Maurice, an adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld book The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents. The cast is rounded out by Julie Atherton, YouTuber Joe Sugg, David Thewlis, Himesh Patel, Gemma Arterton, and Hugh Bonneville.
“The Amazing Maurice” is the 28th book in Pratchett’s monumental “Diskworld” series and was the first aimed at kids. Riffing on the Pied Piper of Hamelin story, it turns on a cat which teams with a group of speaking rats on an ambitious extermination con game.
The film is set to launch on Sky Cinema and the streaming service NOW next year.
