What is Ryan Kwanten up to these days? He’s leading an all-star cast in the animated film “The Blinky Bill Movie”. Ryan will voice the beloved Australian children’s character, Blinky the koala, with stars like Toni Collette, Robin McLeavy, David Wenham, Rufus Sewell, Richard Roxburgh, Deborah Mailman, Barry Otto and Barry Humphries joining the group.
Blinky’s stories were originally written by Dorothy Wall in 1933 and have never been out of print. He is a favorite with children, young and old, and the stories have evolved on television, in movies and in video games. Blinky is described as being “known for his mischievousness and his love for his mother. He does things that are realistic for koalas as well as things that child readers would like to do.” He is also “a naughty little boy in the form of a koala.” (Source)
“The Blinky Bill Movie” is due out in 2015.
