SNSD’s Sunny and SHINee’s Taemin, who were earlier reported to voice the lead characters in the upcoming animated movie “Kid Koala” (also known as “The Outback” and “Kid Koala: Birth of a Hero”) have begun work on their roles. Photos of the two idols in the recording studio were recently released.
In “Kid Koala,” Taemin voices the character Johnny, a white koala that was an outcast in the circus. He goes on a quest to save the natural resources of Australia. Sunny meanwhile will voice Miranda. Taemin and Sunny are the Korean counterparts of Yvonne Strahovski and Rob Schneider in the English-language release of this Korean-American joint production.
Along with behind-the-scenes photos, the first poster for the film was also made public. “Kid Koala” will open in cinemas in 2012.
