Diego Luna & Constance Wu Join Animated VR Series ‘Rainbow Crow’
Apr 19, 2017

Diego Luna and Constance Wu have been added to the voice cast of Rainbow Crow, the new animated VR series from Baobab Studios that John Legend is producing and toplining. The first chapter of the series, which is based on a Native American legend, will be unveiled Friday in a world premiere screening at the Tribeca Film Festival.

In the series, carefree forest animals imagine that spring will last forever. However, winter comes and the animals soon realize that their lives are in danger. What they need is a hero: what they need is Rainbow Crow (Legend). Luna will voice Moth, and Wu will be Skunk, who are Rainbow Crow’s companions helping him along his journey to save the forest.

Baobab co-founder and chief creative officer Eric Darnell, whose credits include writing and directing DreamWorks Animation’s Madacascar franchise and Antz, is directing.

“We are thrilled that Diego Luna and Constance Wu feel that Rainbow Crow is an important story to tell and have come on board,” Baobab Studios CEO and founder Maureen Fan said. “Rainbow Crow is a tale about sacrifice, diversity, and self-acceptance, so we are proud to have an incredibly distinctive cast of talented storytellers who share our values. We can’t wait for audiences to experience what these wonderful actors have created.”

Star Wars: Rogue One had a K-2SO blooper in the final cut
Apr 16, 2017

Think ‘Star Wars blooper’ and there’s a good chance that you’ll immediately think of that hapless Stormtrooper hitting his head in A New Hope. Continuing the tradition of mishaps in a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars: Rogue One had a K-2SO-related blooper that somehow made it into the final cut.

As reported by ComicBook.com, in the final cut of Rogue One, there is a scene on the planet Jedha, where K-2SO (played by Alan Tudyk) slaps Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) in the face to keep up his Imperial facade. As Kaytoo turns to Cassian and says, “and there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again,” you can see Luna starting to suppress a laugh and covering his stifled smile with his hand.

“It’s great,” Tudyk said with a laugh. “You see just the corner of his mouth going up.”

“The slap was actually Diego Luna’s idea,” Tudyk told ET. “But the ‘and there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again’ came from me, and we changed that one up a lot because Gareth [Edwards] wasn’t totally on board with the slap. He was like, ‘Just do it once.’ So it was all just fun and games at that point.”

Visual effects animator Hal Hickel, who we can refer to as “the mastermind behind K-2SO,” emphasized why having Tudyk on set, rather than on a motion-capture stage later on, was pivotal to this moment.

“When you’re doing a CG character (if it’s a human-sized character), it’s so important to have the actor there on set,” said Hickel, adding, “Because of all that interaction, and the ideas that come up and the reacting to each other, it’s crucial.”
