Disney alumnae Ashley Tisdale (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) and Vanessa Hudgens (Highschool Musical) have recently joined the cast of the teen-oriented animated feature The Great Migration.
According to a recent article by The Hollywood Reporter, The Great Migration is being produced by newcomer CMI Entertainment, and will feature the voices of Kendall Schmidt, Ashley Benson, and Logan Henderson along with Tisdale and Hudgens. The entire cast will also be lending their vocal talents for the original soundtrack that will accompany the movie.
The Great Migration tells the story of a group faced with a mutant predator who threatens their environment. CMI Entertainment will be producing the film using previs in order to come out with a high quality, yet low cost animation.
“What we hope to accomplish with The Great Migration is the most efficient animated storytelling without sacrificing artistic vision or quality,” CMI’s Michael Cammarata told The Reporter. “If the right partners are economically and creatively on the same page, I believe projects can be brought from conception to reality quicker than ever before.”
The film is scheduled to begin production on November 1, 2012.
