Shailene Woodley and Jai Courtney Join Animated Feature ‘ARKIE’

May 20, 2017


Shailene Woody and Jai Courtney have joined online star Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor in the upcoming animated feature, ARKIE.

Currently being introduced to buyers in Cannes, the film is created by Nathan Jurevicius, an award-winning artist behind the Scarygirl graphic novel and video game, and directed by his brother Luke Kurevicius.

Arkie is a fantastical adventure about an inventive and inquisitive young girl, Arkie (Woodley) who must leave the safety of her home and embark on an epic journey to a dazzling but dangerous metropolis to rescue her father Blister from the clutches of the evil scientist Dr. Maybee (Courtney). Bachelor will play the role of Bunniguru, a comedic adventurer who relies on his “book of useless proverbs” and wit to get him out of many jams.


The Jurevicius Brothers said:

“It’s been a brilliant journey participating in ARKIE’s evolution over the years. We can’t wait to work with our wonderfully talented actors in bringing her world to life on the big screen. It’s so great that this film has attracted such significant talent. We knew Archie’s story was strong, but having Shailene, Jai and Andrew are important confirmation that we are creating something truly special.”

An Australian/Canadian co-production, Sophie Burne of Passion Pictures Australia and Nicole Stinn of Nitrogen Studios produce. John Stevenson executive produce.
