He added: “When they first showed it to me, I was like, ‘this is exactly the kind of movie I love and love to watch and would love to be in. It was as simple as that.

The actor was also impressed with the latest technology, explaining, “I think they’re updating the animation now…what they’re doing in this movie is just amazing.”
