Those who go to see the new Peanuts Movie in theaters will be pleasantly surprised to hear the voice of Mar Mar. The YouTube sensation stars as Franklin in the film.
“Everyone from the whole Peanuts gang was amazing,” says Mar Mar of the experience. This is the first time he has been showcased in a feature film. Mar Mar gained much of his stardom from a YouTube video in 2012 that garnered more than 250,000 views. Since then, the young star has progressed in fame, which has brought him to this point.
“They made you feel at home,” says the actor of the movie’s cast. “Working with Steve Martino and Craig Schulz on this big project was amazing,” adds Mar Mar. “I think it’s going to be amazing. I was a fan before I even got started. Now I think I’m an even bigger fan.”
Mar Mar will soon release a mixtape called Mar Mar on Fleek. Check out a snippet of the Peanuts Movie, and catch the film in its entirety at your neighborhood theater.
