Right now the whole world knows the name Elliot Page. Some may remember him as Ellen Page, the Juno star who rose to prominence for providing the voice and motion capture for Jodie Holmes, the video game’s title character Beyond two souls (2013), for which Page received a BAFTA Games Award nomination. In December 2020, Page publicly came out as transgender and announced his name, Elliot. Recently, the 35-year-old became the first openly transgender man to appear on the cover of Time magazine and also appeared in a Squire cover, where he talks about “his childhood, his career, his transition and his life, but not necessarily in that order”.
Clearly, since her transition, Page has been focused on her personal health and well-being, but still manages to stay on the public radar. Her breakthrough role as Vanya Hargreeves (Viktor Hargreeves) in Netflix The Umbrella Academy rejuvenated his career with his first major role in a television series since 1999 pit pony. After several guest appearances and cameos, such as those of family guy, The simpsonsand Saturday Night Live, Page has yet to return to the spotlight after the transition and properly introduce Elliot Page to audiences around the world. Here are all of Elliot Page’s confirmed projects set to premiere in 2022 and beyond.
Nel Mio Nome/In my name (2022)
Although Elliot Page does not play in Nicolò Bassetti Nel Mio Nome (In my name), he is producing the 90-minute documentary, which follows Nic, Leo, Andrea and Raffi, four friends between the ages of 20 and 30 from different parts of Italy who are each at different stages of their female-male relationship. transition process. The cast includes Nicolò Sproccati, Leonardo Arpino, Raffaele Baldo, Andrea Ragno, Luisa Fizzarotti, Dario Sebastio and Chiara Battistini. In my name was inspired by the gender transition of Nicolò Bassetti’s son, Matteo, and even though he already debuted on Berlin’s Panorama program in February, he still deserves a mention on the list.
According DeadlinePage personally commented In my nameits sentimental value. He said, “What strikes me about Nel Mio Nome is how he so artfully and intentionally presents all the different pieces that make up a person’s identity. It’s a meditation on trans humanity, and I’ve never seen another movie like it. Knowing that Bassetti consulted closely with his trans son throughout production is so beautiful to me, and I think the lived experience and contribution is clear from the perspective of the film. I’m honored to be on board and can’t wait for everyone to see it.
The Umbrella Academy (2022)
Of course, Netflix The Umbrella Academy must be mentioned. In the comic book-inspired series, Elliot Page portrays Vanya Hargreeves, who will undergo a transition from female to male in season three and will henceforth be known as Viktor Hargreeves. Rather monumental, The Umbrella Academy will be the first major project in which the Canadian actor will be credited under the name of Elliot Page and not under his old identity, Ellen Page. Created by Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy follows a dysfunctional family of adopted sibling superheroes who band together to avert the threat of an impending apocalypse. Joining Page’s Viktor Hargreeves, the cast includes Tom Hooper as Luther Hargreeves, David Castañeda as Diego Hargreeves, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison Hargreeves, Robert Sheehan as Klaus Hargreeves and Aidan Gallagher as Five Hargreeves.
Previously, Viktor had used his pronouns as Vanya, but in season three, Viktor comes out as a transgender man and undergoes a transition from female to male, matching Page’s own transition. So far, the series has received six Emmy nominations and has become one of Netflix’s most-watched shows. In November 2020, The Umbrella Academy has been renewed for a third season, which is set to release on June 22, 2022.
Ark: the animated series (2022)
In 2017, an action-adventure survival video game known as Ark: Survival Evolved released on Linux, Windows, macOS, PS4 and Xbox One. In the open-world experience, players must survive being stuck in environments with natural hazards, roaming dinosaurs, and other hostile prehistoric creatures using guns and other crafted weapons. In 2021, Studio Wildcard released ARK: Ultimate Survivor Editionincluding Evolved Survival and five expansion packs; Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction and Genesis Parts 1 & 2. An untitled sequel, currently known as Ark II, is slated for release in 2022; meanwhile, an anime fantasy series based on the Ark video game franchise — called Ark: the animated series — is currently in development.
We know very little about Ark: the animated series besides the fact that it will consist of 14 episodes set in various moments in history that flesh out the world of Ark: Survival Evolved. Its all-star voice cast features Gerard Butler as General Gaius Marcellus Nerva, David Tennant as Sir Edmund Rockwell, Madeleine Madden as Helena Walker, Michelle Yeoh as Meiyin Li and Jeffrey Wright as Henry Townsend. Elliot Page will portray Victoria Walker, a new character who does not appear in the video game franchise. Walker is — according to the Ark: Survival Evolved wiki – “an idealistic aid worker and wife of Helena Walker.” Unfortunately, there is no official release date yet, but the project is expected to air in 2022.
Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin (2023)
At present, Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin is in early development, so few details have been revealed. However, according to its IMDb page, the action movie will follow “the adventures of Naya The Golden Dolphin Princess and her mission to save Earth.” Jonathan Kay, director of Walk after midnight (1999), is set to both direct the feature and write its screenplay alongside Katie Ford, best known for co-writing/co-producing the hit film Miss Conviviality. Only a few roles have been leaked, including Gerard Butler as King Kula, Megan Fox as Princess Leilani, Kate Winslet as Cupid, and Elliot Page as Dusky. Also on the IMDb page, the release date of Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin is listed as June 30, 2023, but this is unconfirmed and subject to change.
robo dog (to be determined)
Many of Page’s future works are too advanced to really detail, but the last confirmed project Elliot Page lends his voice to would be that of Henry Anderson. robo doglisted on IMDb as the story of “two strange dogs, a robot and a real dog, as they embark on an adventure and find their place in the world”. robo dog will mark Anderson’s directorial debut – as it appears on his IMDb profile – and will be written by the combined efforts of Robert Reece (The nut work) and William Josef Schneider (15-40). Again, only a few actors are confirmed to be involved; Rainn Wilson, Ron Perlman, Steve Zahn, Robbie Daymond and, of course, Elliot Page. Interestingly, Page and Wilson previously co-starred in Juno (2007) and Super (2010). At the moment there is no official release date.
