Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage to star in animated movie Hitpig

When we were kids, animated movies and TV shows were always at the top of our watch list. Some of us even enjoy them as adults. It is always a welcome surprise to find that our favourite stars have voiced in a popular animation. Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage will voice star in the upcoming animated movie Hitpig.

Dinklage, who’s amazing acting skills on Game of Thrones made Tyrion a fan-favourite, will collaborate with YouTuber Lilly Singh. The film’s director is Cinzia Angelini, famous for his animation hits like Minions and Despicable Me 3.

The movie has a futuristic setting. The story is based on a grizzled porcine bounty hunter who accepts his next hit: Pickles (Singh). Pickles is a naive, ebullient elephant who has escaped the clutches of an evil trillionaire. Hitpig (Dinklage) initially sets out to capture the elephant. The unlikely pair find themselves on an unexpected adventure crisscrossing the globe that brings out the best in them.

The characters Hitpig and Pickles are based on Berkeley’s picture book ‘Pete & Pickles’. The film, set up at UK animation firm Aniventure, is currently in production at Cinesite. The year 2021 is the scheduled release date for the movie.

Peter’s dialogue delivery and comic timing are sure to bring the audience to the edges of their seats. Dinklage also shared the screen with Jason Momoa in the movie Good, Bad and Undead. Are you excited about the movie? Tell us in the comments below!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to voice-star in English version of documentary ‘Flee'

Movies and shows are not just a form of entertainment. They are a powerful method of describing real-life situations. The Long Night 2020 left a vast number of families devastated. With fewer job opportunities and rising prices, many of them had to flee to survive. Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will be telling one such scintillating story in the documentary film Flee, directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen.

Flee tells the story of Amin Nawabi (a pseudonym), a child refugee fleeing his home in Afghanistan to safety in Denmark. Recounted mostly through animation to Rasmussen, his close friend and high-school classmate. Amin tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey. Riz Ahmed will take on the role of Amin, while Coster-Waldau voices Rasmussen in the documentary.

“I was floored by the emotional impact of Flee.’ This is a unique project that pushes forward our ideas of what documentary, animation, and refugee-centred narratives can be. I’m proud to help bring this project to life for English-speaking audiences,” said Ahmed.

Coster-Waldau said, “When I watched ‘Flee’ I was blown away. The power of a story told in a simple way. ‘Flee’ is a story of extreme perseverance and hope where all hope seems lost. Director Rasmussen captures the intensity of one refugee’s unbelievable journey from the streets of Kabul to the Danish suburbia. Amin is able to tell his story hidden behind his animated avatar. It feels so much more revealing and honest than had it been a standard filmed interview.”

Another Game of Thrones alum Peter Dinklage is also going to lend his voice to an animated movie Hitpig. How do you feel about the movie’s plot? Tell us in the comments below!
