I am thrilled to announce that I have been cast in the upcoming kids’ animated short film, ASALI: Power of the Pollinators! This is a dream come true for me, and I cannot wait to bring my character to life.
As Variety reported about or director, Maya Penn: Penn stars alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Monique Coleman (“High School Musical”), Ronen Rubinstein (“9-1-1 Lone Star”), Joy Ofodu (Mighty Express) and activist Lupita Pineda. Viola Davis and Julius Tennon serve as executive producers. In addition to starring and directing the short, Penn is also animating and producing the film with her production company Upenndo! Productions.
ASALI is a show that revolves around the adventures of a group of young pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
In the series, I will be voicing one of the main characters pictured, known for her quick wit and sense of humor, which I cannot wait to bring to the table.
Working on ASALI has been an incredible experience so far. The lean team behind the show is incredibly talented, and it has been an honor to work alongside them.
One of the things I love most about ASALI is that it is designed to be both entertaining and educational. It teaches kids about the vital role that pollinators play in our ecosystem, as well as the challenges they face. I believe that this is an important message that all children should learn, and I am proud to be a part of a show that is helping to spread awareness!
I cannot wait for all of you to see ASALI: Power of the Pollinators when it premieres later this year. It has been an incredible journey so far, and I am excited to see where it takes me. Thank you for your support, and I hope you enjoy watching the show as much as I have enjoyed working on it.
