Washington [US], February 5 (FeedsIndia): Canadian YouTuber and talk show host Lilly Singh will be starring in a new animated musical short film that is going to revolve around the theme of LGBTQ pride. The film ‘Lilly Singh’s Proud Princess’ will be part of digital kid’s content studio Pocket.watch’s expansive 2021 slate.
According to Variety, a young girl seeking pride in her true identity will be voiced in the film by the host of NBC’s ‘A Little Late with Lilly Singh.’ The film is in the pre-production process at the moment.
Pocket.watch’s chief content officer Albie Hecht said, “She’s an amazing talent and represents an example of the diverse points of view we are bringing to our audience.”
He further said that the film “will speak to LGBTQ identity issues for kids. Lilly will be an eloquent and articulate spokesperson for that.”
Two years ago on social media, Lilly, who rose to fame on YouTube, revealed that she is bisexual, female, and “coloured.”
“Throughout my life, these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers,” she penned at the time, referencing her original ‘Superwoman’ online handle.
Pocket.watch has not scheduled a premiere date or distribution for ‘Lilly Singh’s Proud Princess’ as per Variety. Hecht said the company would release more information later in the year, including who will compose the music for the film. (FeedsIndia)
