Apple Original Films and Skydance Animation have revealed the teaser trailer and poster for Luck, the new animated-adventure film debuting globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, August 5.
Luck is the story of Sam Greenfield, the unluckiest person in the world, who when she stumbles into the never-before-seen Land of Luck, sets out on a quest to bring some good luck home for her best friend. But with humans not allowed, her only chance is teaming up with the magical creatures who live there to do it.
Exclusive first-look footage of Luck will be revealed at the upcoming Annecy International Animation Film Festival’s Work in Progress sessions on June 14, 2022. Director Peggy Holmes, along with key members of the animation team, will share insights into the creative journey behind this highly anticipated, must-see family event.
Eva Noblezada (Hadestown, Miss Saigon, Yellow Rose) provides the voice for Sam. When she ages out of foster care, Sam discovers the Land of Luck and embarks on a quest that could change her luck forever.
Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible, Ice Age, Star Trek Beyond) provides the voice for Bob, a lucky black cat from the Land of Luck, where the Captain, voiced by Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner Whoopi Goldberg, stands guard as the head of security. Bob becomes Sam’s partner in the quest to find a lucky penny in hopes of preserving his lucky life.
Flula Borg (The Suicide Squad, Pitch Perfect, Trolls World Tour) is the voice of Jeff the Unicorn, a larger-than-life facilities engineer who maintains the magical machine that distributes good and bad luck to the human world and who dreams of one day being reunited with his one true love, the CEO of Good Luck, the Dragon, voiced by two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda.
Lil Rel Howery (Free Guy, Vacation Friends, Judas and the Black Messiah) voices Marv, the owner of the Flowers & More store where Sam gets her first job, who is upbeat, sharply-dressed, and always ready with an encouraging word for unlucky Sam.
Colin O’Donoghue (Once Upon a Time, The Right Stuff, The Rite) provides the voice for Gerry, a loyal leprechaun who adores his job working with Bob at Arrivals and Departures in the Land of Good Luck and is the first to volunteer for any task, bringing good cheer wherever he goes.
John Ratzenberger (Cheers, The Empire Strikes Back, A Bridge Too Far) is the voice of Rootie, a bad luck root and the self-appointed mayor of Bad Luck, who runs The Lucky Shot, the one and only Bad Luck watering hole, where he specializes in free advice.
Adelynn Spoon (Watchmen) provides the voice of Hazel, Sam’s roommate and best friend at the Summerland Home for Girls, who is five years old and believes that she’ll be adopted by her forever family just as soon as she finds a real lucky penny, which Sam is determined to find for her.
The magical and adventurous animated film is helmed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Peggy Holmes (The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning), from an original screenplay written by Kiel Murray (Raya and the Last Dragon, Cars 3, Cars), Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger (Kung Fu Panda 2, Trolls).
