Renowned animation distributor GKIDS has unveiled the English-language voice cast for lovely French animated film “Ernest & Celestine.” Forest Whitaker takes the lead, voicing vagabond bear Ernest, while child actress Mackenzie Foy (“The Conjuring,” “Twilight: Breaking Dawn”) will voice Celestine, a young mouse who wants to be an artist but feels pressured into dental school. The two eventually become outlaws together.
The film, which won the Cesar for Best Animated Film earlier this year, hits theaters December 6 (we’re currently calling it a frontrunner for an Oscar nomination in the animation race). Our TOH! review is here. Watch the trailer for the French subtitled version below.
Here’s the full list of voice actors:
