Universal Kids finds new Waldo voice cast


Universal Kids has found Waldo … or at least his new voice actor. The cable channel has announced the principal cast for its upcoming Where’s Waldo? animated series. Joshua Rush (Andi MackThe Lion Guard) stars as Waldo, Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs, The Loud House) voices Wenda, Eva Carlton (Little) plays Odlulu, and Thomas Lennons (Santa Clarita DietReno 911!) has been cast as Wizard Whitebeard.

The first season of the DreamWorks Animation Television produced series will include a number of guest stars. They include Carlos Alazraqui, Rachel Dratch, Kerry Kenny, Tom Kenny, Bobby Moynihan, Oscar Nunez, Jerry O’Connell, Hannah Simone, Retta and Weird Al Yankovic.

Here’s a synopsis for the series:

Twelve-year-old Waldo and his best friend Wenda are members of the Worldwide Wanderer Society — the international order of curious travelers who circle the globe celebrating cultures and solving problems through observation. Their mentor — Wizard Whitebeard, a seasoned wanderer — sends these inquisitive young adventurers on international travel missions so they can earn their stripes and someday become wizard-level wanderers too. But standing in Waldo and Wenda’s way is their rival Odlulu, who can’t help but cause trouble wherever she goes.

-DreamWorks Animation Television

First announced last April, the show is co-executive produced by FM De Marco and John Tellegen. Both previously worked together on
DreamWorks Dragons: The Seriesand more recently on Spy Kids: Mission Critical.

Where’s Waldo? is set to premiere on Universal Kids sometime this July. A teaser for the series will air during the season finale of American Ninja Warrior Junior. That debuts Saturday, April 27 at 7 PM ET/PT on Universal Kids.

DreamWorks acquired the rights to Where’s Waldo?  (known in Britain as Where’s Wally?) when it purchased Classic Media in 2012. Since first being published in 1987, Martin Handford’s puzzle book series has sold over 70 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 30 languages. It previously inspired an animated series in 1991 by DIC Entertainment.
