Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse to Voice June in French Canadian Dub of Nickelodeon Movies' 'Wonder Park'

Paramount Pictures Canada has announced the exciting news that Canadian actor Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse will be lending her voice to the character of June in the French Canadian dub of Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Movies' upcoming animated family-friendly film, Wonder Park!

Locally titled Le Parc Des Merveilles, the movie is set to be released on Friday, March 15th, 2019 in the French-Canadian speaking regions of Canada.

Sarah-Jeanne is no stranger to voice characters in animated projects, having previously voiced Twilight Sparkle in the Mon petit poney (My Little Pony), starring alongside several of her Le chalet co-stars.

In the US-English audio track of the movie, June is being voiced by actor Brianna Denski (Momsters: When Moms Go Bad).

A tribute to creativity, Wonder Park tells the story of 10-year-old June, a wildly imaginative young girl who builds models of amusements parks with her mother. When her mother falls sick and has to go away for treatment. June packs away her models, and loses her sense of wonder. But one day in the woods, in a magical moment, she discovers a roller coaster car buried under ivy. It transports her to a fantasy wonder park, like the ones she used to build, populated by animals who were its past employees. But the park is broken down, abandoned and in a state of decay. With the park’s animals, June sets out to fix it and rediscover her sense of confidence and imagination, overcoming her fears.

The voice talent of the US dub of Wonder Park includes Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Rules Don’t Apply, The Producers) as Dad, Jennifer Garner (Nine Lives, The Tribes of Palos Verdes) as Mom, Kenan Thompson (All That, Kenan & Kel, Good Burger, SNL) as Gus, Ken Jeong (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Bob’s Burgers) as Cooper, Mila Kunis (Family Guy, A Bad Moms Christmas) as Greta, John Oliver (The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, live-action Lion King) as Steve, Sofia Mali as Young June, Brianna Denski (Momsters: When Moms Go Bad) as June, Oev Michael Urbas as Banky, Norbert Leo Butz (Bloodline) as Peanut, Kate McGregor-Stewart as Aunt Albertine, Kevin Chamberlin as Uncle Tony, Kath Soucie (Rugrats, Hey Arnold!) as Bus Counselor Shannon, and Noen Perez as Chatty Kid. Jeffrey Tambor, who in recent months has been accused of harassment, was replaced on the animated offering last month. He was replaced by Ken Hudson Campbell, who voiced Boomer the Bear.

The PG-rated film was written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows) from a story by Applebaum, Nemec, and Robert Gordon. Appelbaum, Nemec, and Kendra Haaland served as producers, with Karen Rosenfelt and Don Hahn executive producing. The studio hasn’t credited the film to a director after the original helmer, first-time director Dylan Brown, was fired in January 2018 following complaints of inappropriate and unwanted conduct.

The production budget for Wonder Park is estimated to be $100 million U.S. dollars.

Wonder Park is set for release in theatres and RealD 3D in the US on March 15th and in 2D and 3D cinemas in the UK on April 8th.

'Knight Squad' Stars Daniella Perkins and Lilimar Grace the Cover of February/March 2019 Issue of 'Girls’ Life' Magazine

Knight Squad stars Daniella Perkins and Lilimar rock with their respective styles on the cover of the February/March 2019 issue of Girls’ Life magazine!

Screen queens Daniella Perkins and Lilimar are techinicolor dreams in this season’s bold hues and touchable textures. Plus: The intelligent and talented stars of Nickelodeon's Knight Squad prove that no topic is off limits as they get real on self-love, fans, navigating Hollywood and more.

In Daniella's feature, the actor opens up about representation in Hollywood and playing Ciara on Nickelodeon’s popular comedy series Knight Squad.

“There’s a very big lack of representation in the entertainment business as a whole,” she says. “Growing up, there was nobody who really looked like me on-screen. I used to think, ‘Aw man, my hair is so big.’ But now, I get to wear my hair curly on Knight Squad and I totally embrace the heck out of it.”

Daniella adds, “So many curly-haired girls have been responding to it and saying that we’re hair twins!”

In Lilimar's interview, the actor opens up about sharing makeup-free and unretouched photos of herself on Instagram.

“I’d get a lot of comments like ‘I wish I was as pretty as you are’ or ‘OMG, can I have your life?’. It made me sad,” she confesses.

Lilimar adds, “I was like, I want to change this. I want my fandom to feel more empowered and I want my fans to like who they are and what they have. You only have what you were given, so why not love it?”

She also gave a big shout out to her fans.

“You have to be grateful for those who support you. You have to appreciate the places you’ve been and how you’ve gotten to where you are. And I am so appreciative of all the opportunities I’ve gotten because of my fans.”

The epic two-part first season finale of Knight Squad, "End of the Knight" kicks off with part one on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 9:00pm ET/PT, followed by part two on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 9:00pm ET/PT! In the special, an injured Princess Eliza informs the kingdom that evil Ryker is near the all-powerful Armor of Astoria; Arc (Owen Joyner) and Ciara (Perkins) race to its location, but a shocking betrayal allows Ryker to take the armor and reclaim Astoria's throne!

Don't worry, this won't be the last we hear from the Knight Squad gang: a 10-episode second season is currently being made! In the meantime, fans can watch Daniella on Nickelodeon's brand-new YouTube series, Drop That Seat!

'Knight Squad' actress Daniella Perkins meets Long Island kids

Nickelodeon 'princess' teases her favorite episodes and talks about being a role model for biracial kids.

We met actress Daniella Perkins, who stars as Ciara on one of our favorite Nickelodeon shows, “Knight Squad,” while she was in Manhattan recently.

What is it like playing Ciara on “Knight Squad”?

Playing Ciara, it’s really fun because, you guys know, she’s the princess. You know, us girls, we gotta show the world who’s boss. I feel like it’s really cool and she’s very funny, too, at the same time. So she’s not too serious, but she can take power, and I feel like it’s really cool.

How do you like being a princess?

Would you guys like to be princesses? It’s everything you dream of, guys. It’s a lot of fun because you get to wear crowns and dresses and everything, and you just get to be a princess.

When did you start acting?

I started acting when I was about 15, so I’ve been acting for four years. I used to be in musical theater. I love performing. I used to be really shy, though. Growing up I was kind of quiet. And then I just broke out of my shell and I started musical theater. And after that I was like, “Oh, my gosh, I can actually be an actor.” I started auditioning and I booked my job, and that’s how it happened.

What is your favorite episode on “Knight Squad”?

My favorite episode that’s out would be whenever it is when we have guest stars. So, have you guys seen Kira [Kosarinon] from “The Thundermans”? I love that episode. I think that was really funny because I love Kira, she’s one of my very good friends. And Jack [Griffo]. Those are my two favorite episodes, just because having guest stars is always fun because you’re always with the same cast, but when new people come in, it’s kind of like different experiences. My favorite ones, though, are towards the end of the season and aren’t out yet, but they will be coming out.

Do you like playing a mean role?

Yes, I do . . . I really think it’s cool because you know, being like a mixed girl and everything, to be able to land a leading role and be able to show diversity for everyone out there and be like, hey, you can do it. And especially being a girl, and she’s very powerful. So I feel like it’s sending out a very good message, especially nowadays because I don’t know if you guys know everything that’s going on in the entertainment business, but all these girls are taking over. We’re here and we’re boss, and I feel like I’m kind of part of that movement, so it’s really cool.

Who is your role model?

I would say my mom is because she taught me to always make the best out of situations, and if you put out good vibes and think good and you stay on track of what you want to do in your life, that’s going to happen. I feel like that’s really set my way and my career so far. And she’s just an amazing person.

Do you like in the show having parents from different countries?

Yeah, in the show it’s only my dad, but we’re from Astoria, so it’s kind of like, we don’t say it’s like a magical land, but you know how it is. I don’t know where my mom is in the show, but yeah, having my dad is very fun. He’s very cool and he’s kind of goofy, right? He’s very goofy. I feel like I’m the mom. I feel like I’m his mom in the show. I’m like, "Dad, no. Bad." He would say, "Sorry."

How would you describe yourself?

I would say I’m very — some people could call it quirky. I don’t know; I’m very out there. Sometimes I’m very loud or I’m very goofy to make weird dances and do all this stuff in public. It just depends on the mood. You know how it goes, you just feel a little different sometimes, like today I’m going to be funny. It depends.

Do you believe Ciara will eventually tell her friends that she is a princess in the season finale?

That is a good one. There are a lot of secrets that do eventually come out. We don’t know yet. So you’re going to have to watch till the end of the season. I’ll say this: It gets harder for Ciara to keep the secret. Does that make sense? Because people start questioning where she goes and all this stuff.

Do you choose your makeup or do the set workers?

When I am the princess, they choose what dress I’m wearing. We go based on the eye shadow if I’m wearing the purple dress or a green dress. We keep it a little bit more mild. But she does wear more makeup than Ciara because she’s a princess and she wears lip gloss, and Ciara is more like, get to work. I don’t really choose it, but I have a say if I think it should be a little bit more of something, or like, can we use this color. I choose my nails, though. I always have my nails done in every episode. No one probably pays attention, but that’s my thing. I’m like, I’m going to have this color nails this episode.

Other than acting, is there anything else you are passionate about?

I want to be a director, directing and fashion. That’s what I would probably be doing. Well, I’m going to do it, even though I’m an actor. But that is what I want to do for my career.

Have families or organizers contacted you thanking you for promoting biracial families?

Definitely, yes. Moms would come up to me and say, Oh, thank you so much for being this role model for my daughter because when I was growing up, when I was younger— like, a little younger than you guys — I never saw a girl who was the lead in a show and was mixed or anything. I saw girls who were in the show, but it was never her show. And definitely never a powerful role, too.

When you’re not acting or doing social media, what do you do for fun?

I feel like I’m always showing something. See, I have my own camera right here. Even when I’m not in front of cameras, I’m always filming myself. I just love entertaining. Does that make sense? If I’m not working on something, I feel very bored. For me personally, just keeping myself motivated, even if I’m not on set, I like to stay filming something. I just film my YouTube videos, get them out there, still entertain.

Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Movies' 'Wonder Park' Characters Star in New PSA to Inspire Girls to Pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)

Original Ad Council Press Release via PR Newswire:

Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Movies' Wonder Park Characters Star in New PSA to Inspire Girls to Pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)

Paramount Animation joins the Ad Council to launch new PSA highlighting the creative, fantastical worlds that girls can build using STEM

NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ad Council has joined forces with Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Movies' Wonder Park to inspire young girls to use science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build, create and change the world. The new PSA (public service advertisement) is an extension of the Ad Council's She Can STEM campaign, which encourages girls to pursue their STEM passions by challenging obsolete stereotypes and surprising girls with how cool, unexpected and inspiring STEM can be.

She Can STEM and Wonder Park team up to inspire girls to stay in STEM.

The PSA follows 12-year-old June as she creates the whimsical, "splendiferous" amusement park, Wonderland, using STEM. The wildly creative June has a maker spirit and excels at engineering, building and math. The PSA assets direct viewers to @SheCanSTEM on Instagram to learn more about the campaign and resources for girls who are interested in STEM.

"If girls can see it, they can be it," said Lisa Sherman, President and CEO of the Ad Council. "We're thrilled to be partner with Paramount's Wonder Park to bring the fun, inspiring story of a STEM superstar to girls across the country who may also want to pursue a path in science, technology, engineering and math."

This PSA follows 12-year-old June, as she creates the whimsical, “splendiferous” amusement park, Wonderland, using science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). To learn more about STEM, visit @SheCanSTEM on Instagram.

Women make up half of the total college-educated workforce in the U.S., but they only constitute 25 percent of the STEM workforce, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.i Research shows that many girls lose interest in STEM as early as middle school, and this path continues through high school and college, ultimately leading to an underrepresentation of women in STEM careers.

"Our main character, June, believes that if you can dream it you can build it, which is the embodiment of the Ad Council She Can STEM initiative. We are excited to work with the Ad Council to deliver such an inspirational message to young girls everywhere," said Michelle Hagen, EVP of Worldwide Partnerships at Paramount Pictures.

Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a young girl named June comes alive. The movie features the voices of stars including Mila Kunis, Jennifer Garner, Mathew Broderick, John Oliver, Ken Jeong, Keenan Thompson, Ken Hudson Campbell and Norbert Leo Butz, among others. The voice of June will be played by 15-year-old Brianna Denski, who is passionate about encouraging other girls to pursue their interests in STEM. Wonder Park hits theaters on March 15, 2019.

The PSAs will run in donated time and space, per the Ad Council's model. The assets are available in TV, digital and out-of-home formats nationwide. Previous Ad Council partnerships with Paramount include PSAs featuring characters and footage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows on behalf of the Ad Council's Bullying Prevention campaign and Selma on behalf of UNCF's Better Futures campaign.
