Jemaine's in Rio and Bret's One Little Boy

Just a quick post about some great news, because today has been pretty busy day news-wise and I want to keep this blog and my other one, World of Taika, with fresh news and on time.

To start with, here's a new trailer for Rio, a new animated movie where Jemaine voices one of the birdy characters. You won't miss him ;)

And Bret has been officially confirmed to star in a New Zealand film Two Little Boys directed by Robert Sarkies, who directed Out of the Blue and Scarfies (both movies have my personal recommendation). Two Little Boys is based on a book on the same name by his brother, Duncan Sarkies, who also wrote a couple episodes of Flight of the Conchords. Read more about it here.

Anyway, I've read the book. It's great and I couldn't imagine anyone else as Nige but Bret. Total WIN!

The highest honor given for excellence in animation.

Bret and Jemaine along with their friends, Tim Long and Alf Clausen, have been nominated for an Annie award in the Individual Achievement Category: Music in a Television Production.

The awards ceremony is on February 5, 2011 in L.A. Full list of the nominations is here.

Congratulations, Guys! I really hope you'll win, because you totally deserve it!
