Chris O’Dowd and Whoopi Goldberg are among the stars set to star in a new Irish animated film on Netflix, My Father’s Dragon.

In celebration of World Book Day this Saturday, Netflix revealed the first look and cast of five-time Oscar-nominated Cartoon Saloon co-founder Nora Twomey for the upcoming animated feature My Father’s Dragon.

The film stars a cast of Hollywood actors including Jacob Tremblay, Gaten Matarazzo, Rita Moreno, Chris O’Dowd, Judy Greer, Alan Cumming, Yara Shahidi and Leighton Meester.

The animation is inspired by Ruth Stiles Gannett’s Newbery book of the same name. It is produced by Mockingbird Pictures and Cartoon Saloon and published by Netflix.

After struggling with his mother after moving to town, main character Elmer runs off in search of Wild Island and a young dragon waiting to be rescued. Elmer’s adventures introduce him to wild beasts, a mysterious island, and the friendship of a lifetime.

Director Nora Twomey said the film tells a “very special” story about adventure and friendship.

“Our actors, animators and artists at Cartoon Saloon worked together to create this film inspired by Ruth Stiles Gannett’s amazing book,” she said.

“We were brought together by a desire to tell a very special story of friendship, adventure and true bravery. I fell in love with storytelling as a kid and Netflix excels at celebrating all kinds of stories through different styles and different voices.”

“This has given me the opportunity to look through a beautiful lens and I look forward to sharing what I see with our audiences around the world.”

My Father’s Dragon is part of Netflix’s growing lineup of animated feature films, including Oscar-nominated Mitchell’s vs the Machines, Aardman’s Robin Robin, Klaus, Kris Pearn’s The Willoughbys, Oscar-winning Glen Keane’s Over the Moon” and the comedy Back to the Outback, directed by Clare Knight and Harry Cripps.
