Shailene Woodley, Jai Courtney Team for ‘Arkie’

Shailene Woodley, Jai Courtney and online star Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor have joined the cast of animated feature Arkie.

The film, being introduced to buyers in Cannes, is created by Nathan Jurevicius, the award-winning artist behind the Scarygirl graphic novel and video game, and directed by his brother Luke Jurevicius (AACTA Award-winning Figaro Pho).

Arkie is a fantastical adventure about an inventive and inquisitive young girl, Arkie (Woodley), who must leave the safety of her home and embark on an epic journey to a dazzling but dangerous metropolis to rescue her father Blister from the clutches of the evil scientist Dr. Maybee (Courtney). Bachelor, with over 16 million online followers, will play the role of Bunniguru, a comedic adventurer who relies on his “book of useless proverbs” and wit to get him out of many jams.
