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.
It’s been flying around the internet all day that Zendaya has landed a big role in the upcoming Spider-Man Reboot! You can read an article from Deadline below! Im so hoping its true, stay tuned for more!
Sony and Marvel Studios are beginning to cast up their Spider-Man reboot. I’m told that actress-singer Zendaya has landed a key role in the ensemble they are building around Tom Holland, who’ll play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the film to be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car). She was among the actresses who’ve quietly been testing for roles, and I hear she will play a character named Michelle. Nobody is providing details on whether this is the romantic lead opposite Peter Parker, but it doesn’t sound like it. In the comics, Parker romanced Mary Jane and Gwen.
The official Barbie Twitter page announced the “K.C. Undercover” star will be a one-of-a-kind doll.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Barbie is modeling Zendaya’s doll after her stylish Vivienne Westwood look at the 2015 Oscars. EW also reported Zendaya saying in a press release, “I’m excited to be a part of the new direction the Barbie brand is headed, specifically how they are celebrating diversity in the line and encouraging kids to raise their voices”
The superstar will host the Rock n’ Royals Concert Experience on Saturday, Sept. 26, where her doll will be on display.
“When I was little, I didn’t have one that looked like me, so I couldn’t connect with her in that way…But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie’s vision for the future…it was really cool. http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/zendaya-to-be-new-barbie-girl/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/zendaya-to-be-new-barbie-girl/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/zendaya-to-be-new-barbie-girl/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/zendaya-to-be-new-barbie-girl/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/zendaya-to-be-new-barbie-girl/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/zendaya-to-be-new-barbie-girl/I was able to see how they plan to diversify, broadening the horizons and the image of Barbie, and make it more, you know, open. I left the office feeling it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of,” Zendaya told Yahoo Celebrity.

According to the Hollywood reporter Zendaya is currently working a new Animated Film titled “Duck Duck Goose” you can read below for more information!
China’s Original Force Animation has been quietly setting up an animated motion picture unit while getting its first batch of features off the ground, and it is holding its debut event on Wednesday evening during CG conference Siggraph in Los Angeles.
The new unit is based in Culver City and headed by co-presidents Sandra Rabins and Penney Finkelman Cox, who are partners in the venture, along with Original Force founder Harley Zhao. The company seeks to produce at least one CG feature film approximately every 18 months.
During the launch event, the filmmakers revealed concept art and some details from their first projects. Currently in production in the feature unit is Duck Duck Goose, directed by Jenkins from a screenplay by Jenkins and Rob Muir. So far, confirmed voice cast includes Zendaya, Lance Lim, Greg Proops, Diedrich Bader, Rick Overton, Ken Jeong and Jennifer Grey. Finkelman Cox and Rabins are producing the feature along with Viola Chen. http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/new-animated-film/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/new-animated-film/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/new-animated-film/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/new-animated-film/ http://zendaya-coleman.com/wordpress/new-animated-film/
In the story — set in a world that the filmmakers are giving a painterly look — a free-wheeling hero, Peng, rejects the community of his tight-knit flock of geese in an attempt to live life on his own terms. But after he narrowly rescues two young ducklings from a deadly cat named Banzou, Peng agrees to look after them.
