Sigourney Weaver told SCI FI Wire that she was excited to voice a different kind of character in the upcoming animated feature Happily N’Ever After, a comedy-fantasy inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairy tales. "I did that a long time ago," the star of the Alien film series and The Village said in an interview while promoting her latest film, the independent drama Imaginary Heroes. "I had a great part in that, if it’s what I remember. I’ve been offered a lot of mean parts in cartoon movies, because ... I don’t know why. So I was waiting for a funny part to come along."
Weaver added, "Frieda is Cinderella’s stepmother. She gets power, and she undoes all the laws of physics that govern happy endings. All hell breaks loose, and she has a great time. Finally, she’s no longer just the stepmother. She’s in control. It’s a very charming movie, very romantic. Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar play the romantic leads, and I think George Carlin is in it as well, because you never get to meet these people. You just go to the studio and do your work. But I really enjoyed working on it." Happily N’Ever After will be released later this year.
