“Turbo” (in 3D and 2D) is a heart-stopping action adventure with lively characters starring the voices of Ryan Reynolds as Theo/Turbo, Paul Giamatti as Chet, Samuel L. Jackson as Whiplash, Snoop Dogg as Smoove Move, Maya Rudolph as Burn,  Ben Schwartz as Skidmark, Mike Bell as White Shadow, Michael Peña as Tito, Luis Guzman as Angelo, Bill Hader as Guy Gagne, Ken Jeong as Kim Ly and Michelle Rodriguez as Paz.

 

The family film from DreamWorks Animation centers on the engaging crew of snails starting with a garden snail named Turbo  who leaves his snail community behind to begin his journey to fulfill his dream of becoming a racer in the Indy 500. Swept from a freeway overpass onto the hood of a sports car, and is then propelled into the muscle car’s air intake valve, Turbo is then charged with  explosive nitrous oxide, altering his molecular structure.  The freak accident infuses Turbo with incredible speed – he can reach 200 miles per hour – and he now blazes across the streets of Los Angeles like a neon bullet.

 

Along the way, Turbo and his brother Chet meet new snails who help achieve his dream of joining the Indy 500 race.

WHIPLASH

The charismatic leader and reigning champ of the Racing Snails voiced by Samuel L. Jackson.  A warm jovial guy who treats his crew like family who helps Turbo realize his dream.

Whiplash has great inspiring abilities. He’s able to rally people around him and to make them think that they’re capable of doing things that they ordinarily wouldn’t be able to do.

SMOOVE MOVE

The Zen-like, laid back racing snail voiced by multi-platinum artist, actor and entertainment icon Snoop Dogg.

A super-cool-low-rider with a blinged-out shell whose motto is derived from what his mamma taught him “Don’t mess with what you’ve been blessed with.  I’m S-to-the-M-to-the-double- O-V-E! Wouldn’t change that for the world!  Preach.”

BURN

Burn is the only female in the crew voiced by SNL icon Maya Rudolph. A toughie who doesn’t have trouble holding her own amidst the testosterone-fueled, speed-worshipping teammates.  Sly and sassy and always chewing gum, Burn hides her soft side under a hard outer shell (adorned with shooting flames).

SKIDMARK

Skidmark or Number 13, this master of skids is voiced by Ben Schwartz.  Sentimental and gravity-defiant, his shell is souped-up like a dragster prone to make long skidding noises.

WHITE SHADOW

White Shadow resembles an intriguing cross between Jabba the Hut and Evel Knievel voiced by Mike Bell (a former DreamWorks Animation storyboard artist who initially done the temp voice but the short-term gig became a co-starring voice role due to the perfect voice initially rendered).   Full of false bravado and real laughs, White Shadow considers himself to be “fast, like a shadow” – ignoring the fact that shadows aren’t inherently fast.  White Shadow prefers to be mysterious and his dream is to have a burrito named after him to be called White Shadorrito.
