The German voice actors of Raven’s new movie adventure are currently having fun in the dubbing studio: This marks the third time that singer Jan Delay (right) lends cheeky Raven his unmistakable voice while Germany’s legendary actor, Dieter Hallervorden, speaks the role Grandpa Badger for the first time. Renowned actress Anna Thalbach can be heard as Mrs. Badger, while her daughter, Nellie Thalbach, voices Little Badger. World sales are handled by Beta Film.
One year before theatrical release, journalists stopped by to take a sneak peek at the production of new animated feature film THE ELFKINS. The filmmakers, together with director Ute von Münchow-Pohl and Professor Carl Bergengruen, the CEO of MFG Film Fund Baden-Württemberg, provided background information on the project and gave practical insight into the production process of a CG-animated feature film. On September 12th 2019, the ELFKINS will finally leave their underground home to conquer the cinema screens.
