Wonder Park, the new animated feature from Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Movies, takes center stage in the latest public service announcement (PSA) from the Ad Council. An extension of the She Can STEM campaign, the Wonder Park spot seeks to inspire young girls to use science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to build, create and change the world. In the film, 12-year-old June creates the whimsical, “splendiferous” amusement park, Wonderland, using STEM.
The PSAs will run in donated time and space per the Ad Council’s model. Previous Ad Council partnerships with Paramount include PSAs featuring characters and footage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows on behalf of the Ad Council’s Bullying Prevention campaign, and Selma on behalf of UNCF’s Better Futures campaign.
Wonder Park tells the story of a magnificent amusement park where the imagination of a young girl named June comes alive. The movie features the voices of stars including Mila Kunis, Jennifer Garner, Mathew Broderick, John Oliver, Ken Jeong, Keenan Thompson, Ken Hudson Campbell and Norbert Leo Butz, among others. June is voiced by 15-year-old Brianna Denski, who is passionate about encouraging other girls to pursue their interests in STEM. Wonder Park hits theaters on March 15, 2019.
A full range of toys from Funrise will support the film, and an animated series has already been announced for Nickelodeon.
