January 16, 2015—Giant Screen Films and K2 Communications are pleased to announce that prolific actor Sir Patrick Stewart has signed on to narrate Journey to Space, launching worldwide this February. Famous for his roles as Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series and Captain Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Stewart is a Grammy Award winner as well as a Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe nominee. In Journey to Space, Stewart will take audiences on a behind-the-scenes tour of the international effort to send astronauts to Mars within the next 20 years.
“It was delight to contribute to this exciting film project, which will let audiences young and old know how surprisingly close we are to sending humans into deep space,” said Stewart.
“Working with Patrick Stewart was the best," said Mark Krenzien, director of Journey to Space. "His narration is the perfect icing on our space-story cake. Everyone in the studio was beyond impressed by his enthusiasm for the project and his dedication to every nuance and detail.”
