It looks like Aquaman truly has an all-star cast. It has just been confirmed that Julie Andrews will be in the highly anticipated DC Extended Universe film, or at least we'll hear her iconic voice this December. Nevertheless, it's an important role that will help Jason Momoa's superhero on his journey.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Andrews has been cast as the voice of Karathen, "an undersea creature that holds the key to Arthur Curry's quest to unite the Atlantean and surface worlds." Basically, it sounds like Mary Poppins will be telling Momoa how he's going to defeat Patrick Wilson's Ocean Master.
So how did the DCEU film even decide to cast the veteran actress? Aquaman producer Peter Safran explained that they wanted a specific sound for the character.
"We wanted the Karathen to have the voice of a classic British actress, albeit somewhat digitally altered. And when we found out Julie was interested and available and excited to do it, casting her was a no-brainer."
This is certainly exciting news considering that the Mary Poppins reboot will debut at around the same time as Aquaman. Although Andrews isn't a part of the Emily Blunt film, fans can rest assured that we'll be hearing the Sound of Music star's iconic voice later this year.
The film also stars Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren, Temuera Morrison, Ludi Lin, Randall Park, Djimon Hounsou, Leigh Whannell, and Graham McTavish.
Aquaman will finally hit theaters on December 21.
