New-Gen: Lena Headey & Luke Wilson Join Sci-Fi Animated Series
Deadline is reporting that Golden Globe nominee Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) and Luke Wilson (Stargirl) have joined the voice cast for New-Gen, an upcoming sci-fi animated series based on the Marvel comic book series by J.D. Matonti, Chris Matonti, and Julia Coppola of A.P.N.G. Enterprises.
New-Gen follows twin brothers and nanotech-enhanced superheroes as they work to save the world of New-Gen from destructive war. The futuristic utopia of scientific and mechanical wonders seeks to balance nature and technology, weaving together an ecologically sustainable paradise.
The twin brothers will be voiced by Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) and his real-life brother Nick Wolfhard (The Last Kids on Earth). Anya Chalotra (The Witcher) has also joined the voice cast for the project.
Headey will play Thea, described as “beautiful and prophetic” and matriarch of the Association of the Protection of New-Gen. Wilson will voice Roboduck, a “comical and mischievous sidekick whose special ability is burping fire.”
Co-created by Matonti and showrunner Brent Friedman, and co-written by Eugene Son, production on the animated series is currently underway.
New-Gen is produced by Bardel Entertainment.
