‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ John Boyega Joins Nickelodeon UK’s First Original Series

Nickelodeon has commissioned its first original online series for the UK and Ireland and enlisted the voice talent of John Boyega for animated series Tinkershrimp & Dutch. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star will voice Dutch, while Sam Riley (Free Fire) will voice a miserable headless chicken.

London-based creative agency Ralph is producing the 5×5′ series, which will premiere across Nick.co.uk platforms and the on-demand service Nick Play from January 15. The series follows two best friends, a langoustine (Tinkershrimp) and a loris (Dutch), who are time-traveling bodyguards for an eccentric monarch.
