CBBC have announced that Brian Blessed will be the voice the Nekross King in Wizards Vs Aliens, the thrilling new action adventure drama from Russell T Davies and Phil Ford (The Sarah Jane Adventures, Doctor Who) which launches on the channel this Autumn.
The ultimate battle of magic versus science is about to commence. The Nekross are a race of aliens who feed on magic and having travelled from planet to planet draining every drop; they’re orbiting Earth to do battle with its wizards for the last remaining magic in the universe. And there’s just one 16 year-old boy who can stop them…
Brian Blessed comments: “Wizards Vs Aliens is hugely exciting and has a feeling of total originality. It is full of vision and brilliance. The earthly realistic scenes are so heartfelt and moving, and they contrast vividly with the universal feel of the Nekross King and his subjects. I find the whole concept miraculous and I am thrilled to be part of such an exciting project.”
Wizards Vs Aliens is produced by BBC Cymru Wales in association with FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) and was filmed at BBC’s Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff. The show is executive produced by Russell T Davies, Bethan Jones and Sue Nott for the BBC and Bob Higgins and Sander Schwartz for FME. The producer is Brian Minchin and co-producer Phil Ford.
