Nick Cannon’s Ncredible Entertainment is partnering with Exodus Film Group to produce a full-length animated feature, Pierre the Pigeon-Hawk.
The cast features an all-star lineup, with Cannon (Wild ‘n Out, The Masked Singer) voicing the lead character and overseeing the film’s musical slate. Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost, The Lion King) will voice Cannon’s mother, Jennifer Coolidge (Best in Show, Legally Blonde) will voice his aunt, and Kenan Thompson (SNL, The Grinch) will voice Sniff, a street-savvy city squirrel, with E.G. Daily, best known for voicing Tommy Pickles on The Rugrats, also featured.
Ncredible’s Michael Goldman will serve as executive producer and Exodus’ John D. Eraklis is set to direct. The film is being produced and financed by Ciaran Crampton and Chase Muratore of Sugar Water Entertainment.
Set in NYC, Pierre The Pigeon-Hawk is a musically driven animated comedy that promotes diversity, inclusion and community. Half pigeon and half hawk, Pierre is rejected by both communities and sets out on a mission to find out where he belongs, meeting a colorful group of animal friends along the way and inspiring animals from all backgrounds to be open-minded.
Cannon said, “It’s always such a pleasure working with friends and combining forces with industry veterans to create fun content for all ages.”
Crampton said, “We couldn’t be more excited to be working with John and Nick and their seasoned teams at Exodus and Ncredible to bring this comedic, powerful and timely tale to life. This film will use music, laughter and terrific visual images to create thought-provoking emotions that will be shared by audiences young and old.”
