Netflix’s newest animated series, Archibald’s Next Big Thing Is Here, premieres February 18 and I had the opportunity to sit down with Hamilton star and quadruple Hollywood threat, Jordan Fisher (Dancing with the Stars), to talk his experience working on the show as well as his many other goings on.
The series’ voice cast includes Tony Hale (Arrested Development, VEEP, Toy Story 4), Adam Pally (The Mindy Project), Chelsea Kane (Baby Daddy, Fish Hooks), Kari Wahlgren (Ducktales, Rick & Morty), Casey Wilson (Happy Endings), and Academy Award-nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Thunderbirds Are Go). The series was also inspired by the critically acclaimed children’s book from Tony Hale, Tony Biaggne, Victor Huckabee, and Misty Manley.
DreamWorks’ Archibald’s Next Big Thing Is Here is the next chapter for Archibald Strutter, a chicken who “yes-and’s” his way through life. While his adventures don’t always go as planned, Archibald takes it one step at a time with the help of his three siblings, Sage, Finly, and Loy, and his trusty sidekick, Bea. Fisher, who voices Finly, said the experience has been invaluable in several ways, especially considering the stellar cast involved with the project. You can find our full conversation below, and be sure to catch Archibald’s Next Big Thing Is Here premiering February 18.
