Nora Twomey speaks about Angelina helping “The Breadwinner” happening

As us all probably know now, Angelina was the executive producer of The Breadwinner and the movie has been praised everywhere! Nora Twomey, an animator and filmmaker was interviewed by Times Colonist and she mentions Angelina foundly. Read some parts of the interview below:

It’s rare to see Jolie on the red carpet with so much of her brood, and the moment made international headlines and provided a big boost to the independent Canadian co-production, which features various forms of 2D animation.

“For our cast, I think it was incredible for Angie to stand on the carpet with them all, and certainly for us it was fantastic,” Twomey said in a recent phone interview.
“I don’t think any of us had ever experienced cameras flashing to that extent ever before. But it was such a strong message to bring her children and to celebrate the film. It was a really, really great day.”

Twomey said Jolie signed on to the film about three years ago, when they were in the early stages of script development. Jolie was a perfect fit, given her work with Afghan refugees and schools in the country.

She “shared our sensibilities and helped guide the process, from the casting all the way through to the exact sensibility of this story and where the story leads to,” said Twomey, co-founder and creative director at Cartoon Saloon, which is behind productions including the series “Puffin Rock” and the Oscar-nominated “The Secret of Kells.

“As a female film director, to have another female film director to be able to ring up and seek guidance from was great. It was fantastic for our cast as well, because she very much asked me to, where I could, cast Afghan actors or at least people who had some kind of a story to tell in terms of moving from one country to another, or some kind of depth to them and intelligence to bring to the part.”

To Voice character in “The One and Only Ivan”

New project with Angelina which has been rumored for a while. She will be the voice of Stella in the new Disney movie The One and Only Ivan. Which means she has both Maleficent 2 and this film coming up working together with Disney.

Angelina Jolie will voice star in The One and Only Ivan, Disney’s adaptation of the Newbery Medal-winning book written by Katherine Applegate and illustrated by Patricia Castelao.

Jolie adds the role to the one she already has on the project, that of producer. Allison Shearmur, who was one of the producers on Disney’s live-action take on Cinderella as well as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is producing the project with Jolie.

Thea Sharrock, director of the tearjerker Me Before You, is directing Ivan, which has a script by Mike White and is intended to be a live-action hybrid.

Published by HarperCollins in 2011, the book centers on a silverback gorilla named Ivan who lives in a cage in a shopping mall along with an elephant named Stella and a stray dog called Bob. Ivan does not remember life before the mall, but when a baby elephant named Stella enters and Ivan finds himself taking care of her, he begins to rediscover his previous life and concocts a plan to take the baby elephant away from their abusive owner.

Jolie will voice Stella.

The studio is now beginning to cast the net to find the actress who will play a janitor’s daughter, a character that is key in helping save Ivan and Stella.

Jolie has lent her voice to movies before, most notably co-starring in the Kung Fu Panda animated films, in which she voiced the character named Tigress. She also voiced a character in Shark Tale.

Jolie is repped by UTA and Media Talent Group.
