David Arquette and Ariel Winter to join Jake and the Never Land Pirates
We told you when production of the show started a while back, but now we have some new cast members joining the show. David Arquette will be joining as Skully the talking parrot and Ariel Winter will be handling the recurring role of Marina the mermaid. We have pictures of both characters below and we are super excited to see the show. I kinda wish that my boys who are not a bit too old for the show had this when they were around, but I can still see my new baby girl watching it when she gets a bit older. Our whole family is fans of Peter Pan where we were first introduced to Captain Hook and Smee who should make great kid friendly villains on the show. Also what kid does not like pirates? David has a huge resume and should fit great as Skully and I love Ariel on Modern Family and think she will also make a great addition to the cast. Do not forget they have the cute Madison Pettis on board as well. Stay tuned for more information.
Arquette said: “I’m thrilled to be a part of the ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates’ team. My daughter has seen the pilot episode and loves it. The character I voice is Skully – a talking parrot. I’ve always been fascinated by the fact that parrots can talk and now here I am, a human imitating a parrot imitating a human. Ya gotta love show biz.”
David Arquette has joined the cast of Disney Television Animation’s upcoming “Jake and the Never Land Pirates,” an interactive series for preschoolers that follows the adventures of classic characters Captain Hook and Smee, along with a new crew of kid pirates led by the enthusiastic and courageous Jake. Arquette will voice the role of Skully, the lookout pirate parrot who helps Jake and crew foil Captain Hook’s plans. “Modern Family’s” Ariel Winter lends her voice to the recurring role of Marina the mermaid.
Each episode of “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” features two fun and music-filled stories, as Jake leads his team – including Izzy, Cubby and their parrot lookout, Skully – aboard their amazing ship, Bucky, sailing from their Pirate Island hideout on a lost treasure hunt throughout Never Land. There, Jake and the team learn that they must work together to outsmart Captain Hook and Smee, earning gold doubloons as they conquer tasks. Whether the treasure is a skateboard, a guitar or a prized seashell, Captain Hook will do anything to get his hands on it, so Jake and his fellow kid pirates invite viewers to use teamwork, problem-solving and physical activity such as sliding down waterfalls, pulling vines and flying with the magic of pixie dust to reclaim their treasures.
“Jake and the Never Land Pirates” also stars Colin Ford (“Supernatural”) as Jake, Disney Channel star Madison Pettis (“The Game Plan,” “Cory in the House”) as Izzy and Jonathan Morgan Heit (“Bedtime Stories”) as Cubby. The series will feature original pirate jigs and rock chanteys, as well as music underscore by Loren Hoskins and Kevin Hendrickson of the Portland, Oregon-based pirate rock band, Captain Bogg & Salty.
