Apple TV+ gets Lucky

Luck tells the story of Sam Greenfield, the unluckiest person in the world. When she discovers the never-before-seen Land of Luck, Sam must unite with the magical creatures there to turn her luck around.

Eva Noblezada (Hadestown, Miss Saigon, Yellow Rose) provides the voice for Sam, and Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible, Ice Age, Star Trek Beyond) voices Bob, a lucky black cat who aids in the adventure.

Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner Whoopi Goldberg plays the head of security for the Land of Luck, while two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda voices a dragon who’s CEO of Good Luck. Other stars adding their voices to Luck include John Ratzenberger, Eva Noblezada, Flula Borg, Lil Rel Howery, Colin O’Donoghue and Adelynn Spoon.

The screenplay is by Kiel Murray (Raya and the Last Dragon, Cars 3, Cars), Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger (Kung Fu Panda 2, Trolls).

Luck is set to debut globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, August 5.
