Actor Meryl Streep has now bagged yet another major project and even though we will not able to see her per se, we will be able to hear her voice leading a phenomenal cast.
The three-time Oscar winner will star with Chris O'Dowd (Sundance's State of the Union), Ruth Negga (Preacher) and Jacob Tremblay (Doctor Sleep) in Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth. The 36-minute film is based on Oliver Jeffers' best-selling 2017 children's book.
It's set to premiere April 17 on the tech giant's streaming platform, five days before the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day celebration.
Here We Are will follow a precocious 7-year-old (voiced by Tremblay) who over the course of Earth Day learns about the wonders of his planet from his parents (Negga and O'Dowd) — and from a mysterious exhibit at the Museum of Everything. Streep will narrate the film.
The project comes from independent animation house Studio AKA (The Amazing World of Gumball, Oscar-nominated short A Morning Stroll). Philip Hunt directed the film and co-wrote it with Luke Matheny (God of Love, Maron). Hunt, Sue Goffe and Jeffers executive produce. Alex Somers (How to Train Your Dragon) composed the music.
