Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem would have joined the foundry musical animation movie voice Bewitched produced by Apple Studios and skydance entertainment. As a reminder, Skydance Animation has signed a multi-year partnership with Apple TV+ which has already resulted in several exclusivities for the platform (Blush, Luck and therefore Spellbound).
Spellbound tells the story of the princess Ellian – whose voice is performed by Rachel Zegler, the star of the film West Side Story – a young woman who embarks on a turbulent adventure to save the royal family after a mysterious spell turns them into monsters and plunges the kingdom of Lumbria into darkness. The rest of the voice cast includes John Lithgow and Jennifer Lewis in the respective roles of ministers Bolinar and Nazara Prone, as well as Nathan Lane and André De Shields who voice the oracles of the Sun and the Moon. Spellbound does not yet have a release date on Apple TV+.
