Jane Fonda to have lead voice role in Apple/Skydance’s animated film, ‘Luck’

Jane Fonda has nabbed a lead voice role in “Luck,” the upcoming animation movie from Apple and Skydance Animation for AppleTV+, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fonda will voice the role of The Dragon, the exuberant CEO of Good Luck and the luckiest ancient being in all the land. But when bad luck starts to spin out of control, Fonda’s character must face her fears or risk losing good luck forever.

Yesterday it was announced that Apple and David Ellison’s Skydance Animation have closed a multiyear partnership first reported to be in talks in December, and today, the studios have given a first look at the two animated films that will premiere on Apple TV+, “Luck” and “Spellbound,” reports The Wrap.

Both “Luck” and “Spellbound” were set for release in 2022. The former is directed by Peggy Holmes, and follows the unluckiest girl in the world. When she stumbles upon the never-before-seen world of good and bad luck, she must join together with magical creatures to uncover a force more powerful than even luck itself. It was dated for Feb. 18.

“Spellbound” is a musical fantasy set in a world of magic where a young girl sets out to break the spell that has split her kingdom in two, which was slated for November 2021.
