I recently had the opportunity to partake in an interview with part of the cast from Netflix’s Back To The Outback. Included were Isla Fisher, who voices Taipan snake, Maddie, and Tim Minchin, who voices the obnoxious yet cute koala, Pretty Boy.
Back To The Outback Cast Interview
Both Isla and Tim were beyond thrilled to be part of Back To The Outback because they’re both very close with Director, Harry Cripps. They were truly a delight to speak with. I loved learning how they recording during the pandemic, how they relate to their characters, and why they wanted to be a part of the movie.
Fun fact: Back To The Outback’s soundtrack features two original songs by Tim Minchin, “Beautiful Ugly,” and “Maddie’s Lullabye.”

BACK TO THE OUTBACK SYNOPSIS
Tired of being locked in a reptile house where humans gawk at them like they’re monsters, a ragtag group of Australia’s deadliest creatures plot a daring escape from their zoo to the Outback, a place where they’ll fit in without being judged for their scales and fangs.
Leading the group is Maddie (Isla Fisher), a poisonous snake with a heart of gold, who bands together with a self-assured Thorny Devil lizard Zoe (Miranda Tapsell), a lovelorn hairy spider Frank (Guy Pearce), and a sensitive scorpion Nigel (Angus Imrie). But when their nemesis — Pretty Boy (Tim Minchin), a cute but obnoxious koala — unexpectedly joins their escape, Maddie and the gang have no choice but to take him with them.
So begins a hair-raising and hilarious road trip across Australia, as they are pursued by a zookeeper Chaz (Eric Bana) and his adventure-seeking mini-me (Diesel La Torraca). Directed by Clare Knight and Harry Cripps, and also featuring the voices of Rachel House, Keith Urban, Celeste Barber, Wayne Knight, Lachlan Ross Power, and Jacki Weaver, BACK TO THE OUTBACK is an animated adventure that proves just because something’s different, doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful.
