1. Superhero Kindergarten (TBA)
‘Superhero Kindergarten’ is an upcoming family animated series that is slated to have Arnold lending his voice to a character. We most likely believe this will be the gym coach. The basic plot of the show is that a gym coach gains superpowers from a comet, and becomes Captain Courage, one of the greatest protectors of the earth.
However, his job does not just stop at saving the day. The hero must maintain his secret identity and work undercover as a teacher at a kindergarten, trying to raise a new generation of superheroes. Surely, the comedy will arise from how the superhero can handle bad guys but is often stumped when he has to handle naughty kids. It will be interesting to see Arnold doing voice acting, but the Hollywood veteran is sure to deliver a memorable performance.
Viy 2: Journey to China (2019)
Arnold Schwarzenegger ventures into some Russian action with his starring role in ‘Viy 2: Journey to China’, directed by Oleg Stepchenko from a screenplay by Stepchenko, Petrukhin, and Dmitri Palees. It is the sequel to ‘Viy’, the 2014 cinema hit loosely based on the Nikolai Gogol story ‘Viy’. Produced by Gleb Fetisov, Alexey A. Petrukhin, and Sergey Sozanovskiy, the film also has the additional cast members that include Jason Flemyng, Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, and Jackie Chan.
‘The Mystery of Dragon Seal: The Journey to China’ is released in Russia on September 19, 2019, and in China on August 16, 2019. The movie is set in the 18th century and follows the continuing exploits of cartographer Jonathan Green as he undertakes a scientific and supernatural journey that leads him from England to China.
