An old favorite will be revived in The Blinky Bill Movie and Australian actor Ryan Kwanten is on board to voice the beloved character. 

From Greenpatch Productions, the film will reacquaint old and engage new audiences with the iconic Australian koala. 

The big-screen adaptation follows Blinky as he sets out to find his missing father and gathers friends, Nutsy and Jacko, along the way. 

Written by Fin Edquist, produced by Barbara Stephen and directed by Deane Taylor, the film presents cultural qualities that will introduce a modern version of this Australian children’s literary icon whose legacy extends back to the 1930s.

The True Blood star can next be seen in The Northmen- A Viking Saga, which follows the story of a band of Vikings in their race to survive when they are stranded behind enemy lines after a storm.

Kwanten has also wrapped filming on Daniel Alfredson's action comedy Kidnapping Freddy Heineken with Anthony Hopkins and fellow Aussie Sam Worthington, and John Herzfeld's drama Reach Me with Lauren Cohan, Sylvester Stallone, Kyra Sedgwick.

Kwanten was awarded the AiF Breakthrough Award in 2010.
