The Ark and the Aardvark has found the voice of its adorable lead aardvark. Miles Teller will be playing the character in the upcoming adventure.
As you might have guessed, The Ark and the Aardvark is the story of Noah’s Ark from the perspective of the animals. It centers around Gilbert, an outcast aardvark who becomes the leader of a misfit animals on their way to the ark. They will have to work together to survive natural disasters. Along the way, Gilbert will discover his own inner strength and ingenuity.
According to Deadline, The Ark and the Aardvark is being directed by the same director of Kung Fu Panda, John Stevenson. “Gilbert is young, spirited, sarcastic, and we couldn’t have found a more perfect artist to bring Gilbert to life in Miles,” said Stevenson in the announcement.
Teller has really proved himself as an actor in War Dogs and the Divergent series. He proved especially capable in the Oscar-winning Whiplash. His filmography is quickly growing as he can be found in Bleed for This in November.
Unified Pictures has an uphill battle ahead of them. It’s hard to be an underdog in the animated movie industry, but that doesn’t reflect on the quality. We will surely be keeping an eye on this one as it continues production.
