Mark Hamill and 'Stranger Things' star Noah Schnapp to voice cast 'Hallowaiian: Adventure Hawaii'
'Hallowaiian: Adventure Hawaii' has reeled in 'Star Wars' actor Mark Hamill and 'Stranger Things' star Noah Schnapp to its voice cast.
London-based sales outfit Sc Films International's 'Hallowaiian: Adventure Hawaii,' an animated family feature film, will now boast of 'Star Wars' actor Mark Hamill and 'Stranger Things' star Noah Schnapp in its voice cast. Viva Pictures has picked up the North American rights for the project and is planning to release it in time for Halloween 2018.
Also in the voice cast are 'Hawaii Five-0' alumni Teilor Grubbs, who also acted in 'The Dawn,' Mark Dacascos, who is known for his work in 'Brotherhood of the Wolf,' 'Only the Strong,' and 'Drive,' Tia Carerre of 'Wayne's World' fame and Kiefer O'Reilly from 'Howard Lovecraft.'
The film is being directed by Sean Patrick O'Reilly at Arcana Studios, with is most recent releases, 'Pixies' (2015) and 'Howard Lovecraft' (2016) were both animated movies and though not receiving much fanfare, performed decently enough.
The screenplay for the animated feature will be helmed by David Swift, Scott Owen, and Steven Meier, and it will be produced by Fresh Baked Films’ Erick Dickens and Scoutabout Entertainment’s Page Feldman. The executive producers, however, will be Sc Films' Simon Crowe, along with Matt Joynes and Chad Donvito.
Sc Films will supposedly be debuting the first teaser for the film in Cannes this week. It will be set on the islands of Hawaii during Halloween and will follow three friends who must use the local legends to restore peace to their home after they inadvertently set free a mythical monster.
Talking about the latest venture, Dickens told Screen Daily, "The production of 'Hallowaiian' has opened a fun new avenue for us at Fresh Baked Films to connect with family audiences. We look forward to what these new opportunities may bring."
"This is a really entertaining project set in the beautiful islands of Hawaii. It’s an action-adventure experience for the whole family," Crowe similarly added.
