Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank | Cathy Shim and Kylie Kuioka Interview

Kylie Kuioka as Emiko in Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank

It’s all about the cats. Or is it about a dog? Cathy Shim and Kylie Kuioka voiced two of the cats Emiko and Little Mama respectively in Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank.

The film is a cross between Kung Fu Panda and Blazing Saddles in this fun animated samurai story in a western setting.

The animated feature has an all-star voice cast that includes Michael Cera, Ricky Gervais, Samuel L. Jackson, Mel Brooks, George Takei, Aasif Mandvi, Gabriel Iglesias, Djimon Hounsou, Michelle Yeoh, Kylie Kuioka, and Cathy Shim.

Here is the official synopsis:

A hard-on-his-luck hound Hank (Michael Cera) finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain’s (Ricky Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher (Samuel L. Jackson) to train him, our underdog must assume the role of town samurai and team up with the villagers to save the day. The only problem…..cats hate dogs!

The directing team consists of Rob Minkoff, Mark Koetsier, and Chris Bailey. The screenplay is written by Ed Stone, Nate Hopper, Mel Brooks, Norman Steinberg, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor, and Alan Uger. The original story is by Andrew Bergman.
