Luck is the first feature film from Skydance Animation.
Luck is an animated film from Apple Original Films, and Skydance Animation makes its global debut this Friday on Apple TV+. The film features the voices of Eva Noblezada, who stars in Easter Sunday, and Simon Pegg. The cast includes Jane Fonda, Whoopi Goldberg, Flula Borg, and Lil Rel Howery. It is now streaming on Apple TV+.
Sam Greenfield, the unluckiest person in the world! Suddenly finding herself in the never-before-seen Land of Luck, she must unite with the magical creatures there to turn her luck around.
Luck is a fabulous-looking animated film that could have benefited from a theatrical debut. Many of the folks that worked on this film came from Disney and Pixar so its obvious how much “Pixney” influence was put into creating Luck. It is a film that a much younger audience will enjoy, but parents will struggle to sit next to their child for the entire 1-hour and 40-minute runtime. Nevertheless, it is a decent start for the studio’s first film that showcases its potential.
Sam Greenfield, voiced by Eva Noblezada, is the unluckiest person in the world in this film, but Noblezada has had tons of success recently as two of her films premiere the same weekend, Luck and Easter Sunday. Nolbezada shines and gets to highlight her singing talents in both films. Her character is sincere and likable. You feel for her painful journey of having bad luck and never being adopted. Simon Pegg, best known for Mission: Impossible Ice Age and Star Trek Beyond, voices Bob. He is a lucky black cat from the Land of Luck. Pegg nails the charming Irish accent of Bob, who will have his predicament in the film as he becomes Sam’s partner in the quest to find a lucky penny in hopes of preserving his own lucky life.
I give Luck 3 out of 5 stars. It is a wholesome film that has plenty of cute and mystical animals for your young kids to enjoy. Luck is now streaming on Apple TV+.
