Are you ready for the new generation of Disney stars?
Well, get ready.
Noah Cyrus, Miley Cyrus’ little sister, and Frankie Jonas, little brother of Joe, Nick and Kevin Jonas, are the young voice stars in the new Disney anime film, “Ponyo.” The film, which opens Aug. 14, also features the voices of Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin and Betty White.
And Noah and Frankie even did a duet together in the magical film created by anime legend Hayao Miyasaki. But it wasn’t Frankie’s first time in the music studio.
He already has a band and “we’re doing some demos,” he told reporters at the “Ponyo” press conference at the Four Seasons yesterday.
Of course they are.
Asked if “Ponyo” has a lot of common with Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” the famous fledglings explained why they thought it does.
“It’s based on a fish who wants to become human,” Frankie explains. “And it’s about saving the Earth,” added Noah.
What’s the best advice their celebrity brothers and sisters have given them about handling premieres and red carpets and press junkets?
“Good luck and stay positive,” said Frankie. “My sister told me to always have fun when you do it,” adds Noah.
