Among the announcements that came out of the D23 Expo was the casting of Tom Hiddleston alongside Christina Hendricks in DisneyToon Studios The Pirate Fairy, in which the Thor: The Dark World actor voices Cabin Boy James, who’ll later be legendary as Captain Hook. Unless you have “Hiddleston” as a Google alert, or have children who religiously watch the Tinker Bell direct-to-DVD animated movies, that relatively minor news likely escaped your attention.
But what you can’t miss is video of a giddy Hiddleston, an avowed fan of Disney’s The Jungle Book, singing a little bit of “Bare Necessities” at the event. If that’s not somehow worked into Thor 3, somebody at Marvel Studios isn’t doing his job.
