It has been announced that Summer Glau, Elijah Wood and Ron Perlman will be voice starring in an animated motion comics of "Peter Panzerfaust." Summer Glau's character is Wendy.
Peter Panzerfaust is a high energy action story blending the unlikely combination of the wartime camaraderie with themes from the beloved classic children's story Peter Pan. The series is set in the city of Calais, the first city in France to fall to the Germans in the spring of 1940. A mysterious American boy named Peter rallies a handful of plucky French orphans, and they must work together to survive Europe's darkest hour!
Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings) and Summer Glau voice the indomitable characters of Peter and Wendy, while Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy) brings to life Peter's arch-nemesis, the Nazi officer Kapitan Haken, the series' incarnation of Captain Hook. Dante Basco, who played Rufio in the 1991 movie Hook, will return to the Neverland universe as the voice of Alain.
A trailer is set to be shown at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) on Saturday April 27, during a Peter Panzerfaust panel and Q&A with comic creators Kurtis Weibe (Writer), Tyler Jenkins (Artist) and Panzerfaust’s motion comic & TV series Executive Producer, Jeff Krelitz.
The motion comic isn’t all PETER PANZERFAUST fans have to look forward to. The companies behind the motion comic have announced that a live-action series based on the comic is also in development.
No indication that the voice actors will reprise their roles in the live action series, though.
As usual, you can comment under the News and in the dedicated thread in the forum.
UPDATE: Peter Panzerfaust's writer Kurtis Wiebe has released behind-the-scene photos from the recording session of the upcoming animated comic, featuring voice actors Summer Glau, Elijah Wood and Ron Perlman
