Johnny Depp to Voice Title Character in Puffins


Johnny Depp is set to voice Johnny Puff in the new animated series Puffins from Iervolino Entertainment, the production company founded by Andrea Iervolino and co-owned with Monika Bacardi.

Puffins follows the adventures of a group of puffins—Johnny Puff, Tic and Tac, Didi and Pie—who are servants of the walrus Otto. The birds live with a tribe of puffins in the land of Tana, where they embark on missions and tackle the small problems of everyday life. Throughout the series, themes such as gender and race equality and environmental protection are addressed.

The series will be produced between the Iervolino Entertainment Studios in Rome and Iervolino Studios in Serbia. Puffins, which is set to commence production later this summer, will be a mobile-first, short-content format animated series consisting of 250 five-minute episodes.

Iervolino said: “We’re so happy to reunite with Johnny for a second project. Experiencing a new and avant-garde project like this short series, alongside Johnny, has given me even more conviction to champion experimental genre and format fusions. Because making this type of content is new for me, I am beyond grateful that Johnny has shown belief in the project and is taking such an active part of it, sharing his thoughtful artistic ideas that are providing real added value to the Puffins universe.”
