Whoopi Goldberg is set to voice the lead role in the Apple Original film and Skydance Animation feature Luck. Goldberg is providing the voice for “The Captain,” who is the tough Head of Security for the Land of Good Luck within the animated film.
The story follows the unluckiest girl in the world, who after stumbling upon the never-before-seen world of good and bad luck, must join together with magical creatures to uncover a force more powerful than even luck itself. Goldberg’s character, “The Captain,” is known for her heedful eyes and innate sense of intuition, and her supernatural memory of Luck Security codes. She’s super committed to her job of keeping bad luck out and protecting the lucky pennies at all cost. Goldberg joins previously announced cast member Jane Fonda, who voices “The Dragon” in the film.
