Jacob Tremblay is one of the busiest 11-year-olds around, and the Vancouver-born “Room” star’s latest project will be arriving next month.
According to an announcement on Wednesday from Amazon Prime Video, “Pete the Cat” will debut on the streaming service on Friday, Sept. 21, while a new trailer for the animated children’s show has also been unveiled.
“Based on the bestselling children’s books, ‘Pete the Cat’ is a fun, musically driven series about exploring your world and trying new things, while being smart, accepting, and optimistic,” declares the Amazon Prime Video announcement. “Whether you’re making new friends or facing all of life’s ups and downs, Pete always finds a way to put a groovy spin on things.”
Tremblay lends his voice to Pete the Cat, and he’ll be joined by an array of celebrities who’ll also be providing their voices. Real-life spouses Diana Krall and Elvis Costello will lend their voices as Pete’s parents, while other celebrities to appear in the series include Jessica Biel (“The Sinner”), Atticus Shaffer (“The Middle”) and singer-songwriter KT Tunstall.
The first season will focus on themes of self-discovery, with Pete trying such new things as writing his first song, learning to surf and giving his first performance with his band.
