TigersApprentice TA 0001 min 1

It’s hard to overstate how incredible the voice cast is for Paramount+’s upcoming film, The Tiger’s Apprentice. An animated action adventure with some clear inspirations derived from the Spider-Man Spiderverse films, The Tiger’s Apprentice features an all-star voice cast of Asian luminaries that includes Henry Golding, Brandon Soo Hoo, Lucy Liu, Sandra Oh and Michelle Yeoh.

Based on the children’s book series of the same name by Laurence Yep, The Tiger’s Apprentice follows a young Chinese-American teen, Tom Lee (Soo Hoo), who discovers that he is part of a lineage of magical powered beings called The Guardians. Lee becomes the student of a mythical tiger named Hu (Golding), who trains him to fight an evil being named Loo (Yeoh).

The animation and music in the trailer are fantastic, and the action and overall visuals certainly look reminiscent of the ground-breaking Spiderverse films. It’s also an interesting twist for Yeoh to voice the villain of the story.

The Tiger’s Apprentice was originally planned for a theatrical release in 2022, and will now premiere on Paramount+ on February 2, 2024.
