Cameras are rolling on Kangaroo, an Australian family comedy inspired by the true story of an Alice Springs animal sanctuary.

Ryan Corr (House of the Dragon, Catching Dust, Holding the Man) will star as ex-TV weather presenter Chris Masterman, who becomes stranded in an Outback town after a car accident and forms an unlikely friendship with an 11-year-old Indigenous girl, Charlie, played by newcomer Lily Whiteley. They work together to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned joeys in a remote but stunning Outback community, an endeavour that proves to be life-changing for them both.

Studiocanal’s Cultivator Films Australia is producing Kangaroo as its debut feature film in partnership with Bunya Productions and Brindle Films.
