AFM: John Cleese Joins Voice Cast of ‘Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer’

John Cleese is joining Samantha Bee and Martin Short on the voice cast of the animated feature “Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer.”

Jennifer Westcott is directing from her own screenplay. Producers are Dan Krech and Lucas Lynette-Krech under their Awesometown Entertainment banner with Victoria Westcott of Elgin Road.

Double Dutch Intl. is selling “Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer” at the American Film Market.

“Elliot: The Littlest Reindeer” is based on Blitzen announcing his retirement on Dec. 21, giving a chance to a miniature horse who then has three days to fulfill his lifelong dream of earning a spot on Santa’s sleigh during the North Pole try-outs.

“Having an iconic comedian like John Cleese join the pairing of Samantha Bee and Martin Short further proves the fun-natured, global family appeal of ‘Elliot,'” said Jason Moring from DDI.

Cleese is represented by CAA, Anonymous Content and Independent Talent Group.
