John Legend will executive produce and lend his voice to an all new virtual reality series.
According to Page Six, Legend is set to executive produce and lend his voice to a character of the upcoming virtual reality Baobab Studios series Rainbow Crow. The first installment of the series will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month.
Legend said in an interview:
“A lot of the attraction to the project was being involved with a new technology that’s just emerging as a new medium for creative talent,”
The series is inspired by Native American folklore. It tells the story of a bird “with the most dazzling plumage and mellifluous voice, who, after the planet turns dark and cold, must journey far from home to bring light back to the world.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Legend says the story is "...about love. It’s about inclusion. It’s about community."
Rainbow Crow is directed by Eric Darnell, co-founder and chief creative officer of Baobab.
