The Witcher star Anya Chalotra who plays Yennefer in the Netflix series is set to voice in the sci-fi animation series “New-Gen,” alongside Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard.
Nick Wolfhard, brother of Finn who has appeared in “The InBetween” will also headline the voice cast of the animated series which is targeting the 7-plus kids.
The animated series is set in a futuristic utopia called New-Gen, which becomes threatened by a nanotech war. It follows twins who live as ordinary teenagers and nanotech-enhanced superheroes. The series is being designed as a multi-platform, multi-tech experience where viewers will be able to download an augmented reality app enabling players’ use of nanotech powers to battle various creatures from the show, and a web presence that weaves scientific fact and fiction to depict what nanotech is.
The Jetpack Distribution has the global rights and the series is currently in pre-production. Created by J.D. Matonti and produced by J.D. and Chris Matonti and Julia Coppola of APNG Enterprises, the show is based on the eponymous 2008 Marvel Comics series.
“New-Gen” is being produced with animation partner Bardel Entertainment (“Rick & Morty,” “Angry Birds”). The showrunner is Brent Friedman (“Star Trek: Enterprise”) and the series is co-written by Eugene Son, whose superhero TV series credits include “Avengers Assemble” and “Ultimate Spider-Man.”
