Our reporter, Denise Salcedo, covered the press conference for Ratchet and Clank. The animated film opens in theaters on April 29th and is a great experience for the family. Here’s a few few highlights from the cast.
Bella Thorne voices Cora in the new animated film Ratchet and Clank, based on the popular PlayStation video game series. Cora is one of the three Galatic Rangers, her tough attitude and swift combat skills makes her a delightful addition to the movie and according to Bella, Cora is a real character that is tomboyish and very sarcastic as herself in real life.
“I wish I could kick Galaxy butt, but I haven’t had the chance yet,” Bella Thorne said at the press conference.
Director Kevin Munroe, whose credits include TMNT, noted that Bella was perfect for the role of Cora because she not only had the right voice but she believed the lines she was delivering .
“You gotta let the actors takeover the character.” said Kevin.
Even though Bella says she is not good at playing video games, with the exception of Mortal Combat and Grand Theft Auto, due to her lack of hand and eye coordination. Still, she loved working on this film and hopes to do more voice-work, so keep your fingers crossed for a Cora spin-off.
RATCHET & CLANK is a CG-animated movie based on the iconic PlayStation video game and tells the story of Two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy “lombax” who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity.
