But that's nothing compared to her next gig, which doesn't have her changing race like Robert Downey Jr., but has her going yellow. Crayon yellow. Luckily, it's not live-action. The Hollywood Reporter posts that she is going to voice the lead in a new animated CG feature called The Hero of Color City. She'll play a timid crayon called Yellow, who is one of many crayons threatened when "an evil tyrant" appears to remove color from their world. Could a timid, yellow gal be the hero? The picture was penned by J.P. McCormick, Rich Raczelowski, and Evan Spiliotopoulos, and will be directed by Becky Bristow.
There is already talk of "merchandise, art supplies, and educational products," so expect a big wave of crayon-centric marketing and coloring books coming our way. At least this marketing kick will inspire tykes to create things.
