Let’s hope this doesn’t fly under the radar of animation fans, as Woody Woodpecker is a much-beloved franchise that is long due a return to prominence, though whether the vehicle for return should be a live action/CG hybrid feature is certainly up for debate. In any case, Universal 1440 Entertainment has just unveiled a new trailer for “Pica-Pau,” which stars Brazilian actress Thaila Ayala and Eric Bauza (Stimpy in Ren and Stimpy) as the voice of Woody Woodpecker.
You can check out the trailer below:
Pica Pau was filemd in Canada’s British Columbia province, and is expected to screen in countries outside of Brazil, but chances are it is direct-to-video when it comes to the US. The CG woody was handled by Bulgarian cg studio Cinemotion.
