Mark Hamill will be lending his voice talents to an adaptation of Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom. The project by Shout! Factory and Arcana Studios will be written and directed by Sean Patrick O’Reilly based on the graphic novel by Bruce Brown. This is the second animated film from the franchise following Howard Lovecraft and the Frozen Kingdom which stared Ron Perlman and Jane Curtain.
Hamill will be playing Dr. Henry Armitage. He will be joined by Jeffrey Combs as King Abdul plus Christopher Plummer and Doug Bradley will be reprising their roles as Dr. Herbert West and Nyarlathotep. The film follows a young H. P. Lovecraft and his friend Spot on an adventure visiting strange lands while intertwining events from Lovecraft’s real life and some of his most iconic creations like Cthulhu and Shoggoth.
Howard is voiced by Kiefer O’Reilly who has an impressive IMDB page for someone so young and played Jonas, Rip Hunter’s son on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Howard Lovecraft And The Undersea Kingdom is set to be released in late 2017.
