The Hollywood Reporter posts that Arsenio Hall, Craig Ferguson, and Rosie Perez are lending their voices to the upcoming animated feature, The Hero of Color City. This is the project that Magnolia picked up back in 2006, and that signed Christina Ricci in June of this year. And now we've got two talk show titans and the tough cop from Pineapple Express added to the mix of color.
The film focuses on crayons who try and save Color City from an "evil tyrant," whilst living between two worlds -- the magical city itself and the "real world" preschool where they work. Now, I could understand markers, but how exactly do these crayons get used and still live? If there's one thing I remember from my preschool days was that crayons got massacred and it was close to impossible to find one with a point. Most were worn into nothing.
But I guess if crayons are already talking and saving their world and facing a tyrant, little tykes won't kill 'em. Magnola plans to release this color-filled feature in 2010.
