Top Nigerian comedian and actor Ayobami ‘AY’ Makun and Nollywood star Omoni Oboli will make their debut in a Hollywood animation film, “Elliott: The Littlest Reindeer”.
It remains unclear, however what characters AY and Oboli would voice in the film scheduled to premiere on December 14.
The Christmas-themed film also features Hunger Games star, Josh Hutcherson, Dead pool actress, Morena Baccarin, Jeff Dunham, Martin Short and John Cleese.
The animation follows Blitzen, one of Santa’s sleigh-pulling reindeers, announcing his retirement on December 21, giving a miniature horse three days to fulfil his lifelong dream.
The horse has to earn a spot on Santa’s sleigh during the North Pole try-outs in time for Christmas Eve; Elliott and his friend Hazel set out to prove that no dream is too big if you believe in yourself.
It’s more garland sin the cap of AY who earned a Guinness World Record recognition for his 2018 film, ‘30 Days in Atlanta’, as the highest grossing film in the territories of Hollywood and Bollywood.
Omoni, a seasoned actress and filmmaker, is known to use her films such as ‘Wives on Strike’ and its sequel to address societal issues and other challenges of women.
