Germany’s Studio 100 Film, Australia’s POP Family Entertainment, and Ireland’s Telegael are delighted to announce an outstanding voice cast for the highly anticipated animated comedy feature “Being Betty Flood”.
Headlining the cast as Betty Flood is Evanna Lynch – best known for her role as Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter film series. She is supported by celebrated actors Miranda Otto as Aneska Flood, and Richard Roxburgh as Murkhart. They are joined by Charlotte Friels as Misha, Ed Bryne as Winchflat, Ardal O’Hanlon as Nerlin, Neil Delamere as Staniel, Semisi Cheekham as Nat, Erin Choy as Abi, as well as Sarah Aubrey who voices various characters.
Since being announced at the Cannes Marché du film this May, the film has already been sold to NOS Lusomondo (Portugal), Notorious (Italy), ADS (Hungary) FilmHouse (Israel), and Myndform (Iceland), with more sales to be announced at AFM by Studio 100 Film.
Studio 100 Media’s Director of Business Operations, Thorsten Wegener, says: “We are absolutely thrilled by this outstanding cast line-up which will take this project into new spheres. All actors are a true match to the characters they are voicing. We are sure that this makes this film even more attractive to international buyers.”
Adapted and written by Harry Cripps and Cleon Prineas, “Being Betty Flood” is based on the 13-book series The Floods written and illustrated by award-winning Australian author Colin Thompson, which has been a stellar performer in the Australian and New Zealand kids’ book market for the last twelve years, with over one million copies sold across the series.
The 87-minute feature film, targeted at 8- to 14-year-olds and set for delivery in Autumn 2023, introduces Betty, a headstrong, smart 12-year-old girl torn between her over-protective mother and her desire to prove her magical and musical abilities. As she navigates the challenges of growing up and finding her place in the world, her relationships with her family and friends echo the experiences of young girls all over the world in this universal movie full of magic and mayhem.
The film is an Official Treaty Co-Production between Australia and Ireland, which allows the film to be marketed with full European status. Studio 100 Film will be responsible for the worldwide distribution.
