The new animated film Wonder Park tells the story of Wonderland. It’s an adventure-filled amusement park that June and her mother create in their imagination. The park is inhabited by a crew of furry friends, including beaver brothers Cooper and Gus. The brothers act as the park’s “builders.” They construct the rides that June and her mother dream up.

Actor and comedian KENAN THOMPSON voices Gus. Just as June uses her imagination to construct Wonderland, Thompson used his imagination to bring the animated beaver to life. How did he prepare for the role? “I thought about what I know about beavers—that they’re kind of high-energy,” Thompson told TFK Kid Reporter Roman Peterson.

Thompson says his favorite thing about the movie is its magic. “It’s all about the imagination,” he says. “Imagination is a powerful thing.” Wonder Park arrives in theaters on March 15.
