According To Vulture.Com, Zendaya will voice the character of Raindrop in the English Version of “Little Door Gods” alongside Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman! Read below for more information. I have also added some great HQ images of Zendaya along with Kesha at the Humane Society Rescue Gala.
The Chinese animated film Little Door Gods is getting a makeover for its English-language debut. Deadline reports that the Weinstein Company’s English-language version of the film, The Guardian Brothers, will feature the likes of Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Mel Brooks, and woke teen Zendaya doing the voice work. The Guardian Brothers centers on a family-owned wonton-soup shop that has passed through the generations, left in the hands of a mother (Kidman) and her daughter Raindrop (Zendaya). The Guardians are a group of spiritual protectors who watch over Earth. Streep will voice the narrator telling the story.
It’s a curious decision to announce the voices of the new English-language version without any Asian-American actors, particularly at this moment, when Doctor Strange is being dragged for whitewashing a traditionally Asian role. As a point of comparison, Disney’s Mulan, from 1998, featured the voices of a number of Asian-American actors, from Lea Salonga to B.D. Wong to Ming Na Wen. “We are thrilled that Harvey and the Weinstein team share our enthusiasm for this very Chinese film,” director Gary Wang said. It is unclear if Streep, Zendaya, and Kidman will adopt Chinese accents for the film.

James Cameron is producing and Robert Rodriguez is directing Fox’s adaptation of the popular manga.
James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez are zeroing in on their female actor to star in Alita: Battle Angel, Fox’s ambitious adaptation of the popular manga graphic novels.
Rodriguez is on board to direct what is envisioned as a big-budget tentpole, while Cameron and his Lightstorm Entertainment partner Jon Landau are producing.
The movie has not been greenlighted as budgetary issues are still being worked out while the studio seeks to bring it down from the $175 million-$200 million range.
The following trio tested for the film, The Hollywood Reporter has learned: Maika Monroe, who starred in It Follows and will appear in this summer’s Independence Day: Resurgence; Rosa Salazar, who appeared in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and recently wrapped shooting Warner Bros.’ big-screen take of CHiPs; and Zendaya, the Disney Channel star of K.C. Undercover who is one of the female leads of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Bella Thorne, who starred with Zendaya on the TV series Shake It Up and appeared in Alvin & the Chipmunks: Road Chip, also tested, say sources.
Sources say that Cameron and Rodriguez want to create a star-making vehicle akin to Cameron’s Dark Angel, the TV series that ran from 2000 to 2002 and became a platform for Jessica Alba. Sources also say that Zendaya could be the frontrunner for the role, but that scheduling issues with her hit TV show present a stumbling block.
Alita: Battle Angel tells of a female cyborg that is discovered in a scrapyard by a scientist. With no memory of her previous life except her deadly martial-arts training, the woman becomes a bounty hunter, tracking down criminals. The action-adventure story is meant to serve as a backdrop to themes of self-discovery and the search for love.
A decision on the actresses is expected in the coming weeks.
