Actor Omar Chaparro Steps Up With One of the Most Iconic Pokémon in POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Actor Omar Chaparro was surprised to have gotten to be a part of “Pokémon Detective Pikachu,” a movie based in the universe of the global phenomenon Pokémon franchise.

Although Chaparro has loaned his voice to cartoon characters, appeared in movies internationally and has a singing career, stepping into the role of Sebastian the Charizard trainer was something different.

The role which directly affects the storyline had Chaparro speaking lines in English, which is not his preferred language.

When Chaparro was cast, he took two months learning his lines and getting the tone of the character to a place where he was comfortable, then on set the director decided to change things up.

Chaparro said English may not have been his primary language, but he was excited to change things up and work to bring his character out in the best ways.

POKEMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

(L-R) Charizard and OMAR CHAPARRO as Sebastian in Legendary Pictures’ and Warner Bros. Pictures’ comedy adventure “POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU,” a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Getting the opportunity to partner up with one of the largest and most iconic Pokémon in the series was fun for Chaparro, even if he was not aware of the fandom behind it.

Charizard has a major fight scene in the movie and Trainer Sebastian has some words to say before the fight begins.

Chaparro was able to use his imagination as he was working with a partner that wasn’t even there, but he said he felt confident that he was able to deliver a performance fans of the franchise could enjoy.

Coming off a record breaking movie, “No Manches Frida ,” Chaparro hopes to keep the success going with Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.”

There are many times when you get rejected, Chaparro said, but you have to make the best of the projects you do get and put everything you got. After all, I am doing what I am passionate about.

Chaparro goes on to host a show in Mexico, continue producing projects and on to his next role.

New Spanish Streaming App PANTAYA Launches With Support From Omar Chaparro, Maite Perroni

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Latin American stars Omar Chaparro and Maite Perroni are proud to be the ambassadors for the Spanish-language streaming app Pantaya.

The Pantaya app will bring the major productions from not only the cinema from Mexico, but also from Spanish-speaking countries.

Along with cinema from Spanish-speaking countries, major motion pictures will be dubbed and subtitled for viewers to enjoy.

For Latin viewers who are more comfortable with the English-language subtitles from Spanish movies will also be available.

Aside from the major productions, many of the movies that have not had a United States release will have a platform for viewers to have access to them.

Chaparro said that users of the app will be able to keep up with movies from all Spanish speaking countries as well as rewatch the classic movies.

The app is able to search for movies by genre, country, language, decade and even actors.

The user interface is easy to navigate and contain a section which contains a history of movies watched as well as suggestions for movies the user may enjoy.

Perroni said that the entire family can gather around to watch movies off the app regardless of age or how well they understand English or Spanish. The movies are also released across all regions at once, so families in different countries can be watching the same content and talking to each other about what they have been watching.

As Hollywood struggles to be inclusive an app like PantaYa brings people together in a new way.

Content that wasn’t available in the United States before now has a platform to be seen. Actors who have remained unknown in Hollywood mainstream can now be seen by a new audience.

PantaYa is available now with a 7-day free trial and a monthly cost of $5.99 per month.

Available at Pantaya.com.
