Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson & Ashley Benson have joined the cast cast for The Great Migration, an animated film from the newly-formed CMI Entertainment, reports THR. Additionally, the group will lend their voices to an original soundtrack to accompany the film.
Writer Kevin G. Schmidt: ‘The idea for The Great Migration arrived in my email inbox via a weekly newsletter from an alternative physician I follow in Chicago. The film centers on a group of characters that encounter a mutated predator threatening to destroy the balance of their environment.’
The project will mark CMI Entertainment’s first attempt at producing a film using pre-visualization, which aims to create high quality animation below current market prices. CMI: ‘What we hope to accomplish with The Great Migration is the most efficient animated storytelling without sacrificing artistic vision or quality. If the right partners are economically and creatively on the same page, I believe projects can be brought from conception to reality quicker than ever before.’
