Nimoy Lends Voice to Adventures In Zambezia
Leonard Nimoy is at it again. The “retired” Star Trek legend just keeps turning up in things. Fringe, a Bruno Mars video, the Enterprise exhibit on the Intrepid. Now, he’s among the big names lending his voice to Adventures In Zambezia, a CG-Animated feature due for release as a Walmart exclusive DVD and Blu-ray/DVD combo on March 26 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The story follows a spirited young falcon named Kai (Jeremy Suarez), who learns of Zambezia, the fabulous city of birds, and leaves his remote country home against the wishes of his father (Samuel L. Jackson). But when his dad is captured by an evil lizard who plans to attack the city, Kai must learn the importance of teamwork if he’s to rescue his father, save his new friends and help keep Zambezia lizard free. Rounding out the voice cast are Abigail Breslin, Jeff Goldblum and Nimoy, who speaks for Sekhuru, founder of Zambezia and a calm, wise and intuitive mentor and father figure for all Zambezians.
"Essentially it was the wise old bird who counsels the young and charming character with some sage advice and encouragement," Nimoy told StarTrek.com. "It's a lovely film about young people learning lessons in a beautiful setting."
