LUCK: Apple Announces August Release For New Animated Film, Casts Simon Pegg & Eva Noblezada In Starring Roles

Skydance and Apple are working together to bring a new animated film to audiences called Luck and along with an August release date, the voice actors who will portray the main characters have been revealed!

Animated media has continued to grow in popularity over the years. Still, the pandemic sent things into overdrive, making animated projects easier to navigate logistically.

Now it seems as though every platform is looking to add as many animated adventures as they can to their streaming lists. Luckily for fans of the storytelling medium, this means various new projects to choose from when viewing.

Skydance Animation and Apple Original Films have teamed up to create a slate of animation all their own, with three projects currently in development. The feature film Spellbound and an animated series, The Search for WondLa, are on the way, with another film, Luck, set to launch in just six months.
