“We are absolutely thrilled to have such exceptional actors bring life to the characters in our film,” stated Bron Studios’ Managing Director Aaron L. Gilbert. “It’s the next step in making the unique world of Henchmen, our first animated feature film, truly spectacular.”

“The diverse cast are pitch perfect for the irreverent and playful tone of the film – a little edgy with big personality,” added writer/director Wood, commenting on his voice cast.

The Plot:

In a hidden world of super-villains, evil schemes and global domination… someone has to take out the trash! Welcome to the world of Henchmen. When fresh-faced new recruit LESTER (Thomas Middleditch) joins the Union of Evil, he is assigned to a motley crew of blue-collar workers including STEW (Craig Robinson), JANE (Jane Krakowski) and led by fallen henchmen HANK (James Marsden). Having survived a shift working for The Gluttonator (Will Sasso), they are assigned to the Vault of Villainy where Lester accidently steals the ultimate weapon. Meanwhile, the evil BARON BLACKOUT (Alfred Molina) and his first-class henchmen BIFF (Rob Riggle), are poised to defeat their nemesis CAPTAIN SUPERIOR (Nathan Fillion) and take over the entire world. In order to save Lester and his team, as well as JOLENE (Rosario Dawson), the woman he loves, Hank must break his “risk nothing” code and become the one thing he has always avoided… being a hero.
