Audiences will be able to watch the star-studded flick when it hits the streaming platform on Friday, February 2 in the U.S. (with availability in additional international Paramount+ markets at a later date).
“Based on the popular children’s book series of the same name by Laurence Yep, ‘The Tiger’s Apprentice’ follows Chinese-American teenager Tom Lee (Brandon Soo Hoo), whose life changes forever when he discovers he is part of a long lineage of magical protectors known as the Guardians. With guidance from a mythical tiger named Hu (Henry Golding), Tom trains to take on Loo (Michelle Yeoh), a force that is as powerful as a Guardian but with evil intentions to use magic to destroy humanity. To have a fighting chance against Loo, Tom must reunite all twelve Zodiac animal warriors and master his own newly discovered powers.”
The animated adventure’s incredible ensemble voice cast also includes Lucy Liu, Sandra Oh, Bowen Yang, Leah Lewis, Kheng Hua Tan, Sherry Cola, Deborah S. Craig, Jo Koy, Greta Lee, Diana Lee Inosanto, Patrick Gallagher, and Poppy Liu.
The Tiger’s Apprentice is directed by Raman Hui and co-directed by Paul Watling and Yong Duk Jhun, with a screenplay by David Magee and Christopher Yost, and music by Steve Jablonsky.
