The other films that have been dubbed are Finding Nemo, Open Season, Rio, and The Smurfs.
4 Vietnamese artists will dub for the main characters: singer Dam Vinh Hung for the protagonist Puss in Boots, an orange tabby cat with bright green eyes, actress Thanh Van for Kitty Softpaw, a Tuxedo cat who is Puss's female counterpart, actor Dai Nghia for Humpty Dumpty, an egg who was Puss’ old friend and actress Thanh Thuy for Jill, a murderous outlaw.
Experts from DreamWorks Animation Inc. which produced the movie have come to Vietnam to supervise the casting of these actors and the dubbing process to ensure it meets Hollywood standards.
“Voice dubbing is not easy,” said Dam Vinh Hung. “I have had to work for days but I’m not tired at all.”
The film, which is a spin off prequel to the Shrek series, follows the character Puss in Boots in his adventures before his first appearance in Shrek 2 in 2004.
The movie will premiere in America on October 28 and in Vietnam at Megastar and Galaxy cinemas from November 25 in both 2D and 3D.
