I recently had the amazing opportunity to talk to Madison Pettis who voices the role of Izzy in the #1 Preschool Cable TV Series for Kids 2-5 “Jake and the Never Land Pirates”. She has also starred in “The Game Plan” and “Cory in the House”.
I got the opportunity to discuss the upcoming prime time special “Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Jake Saves Bucky” premiering on International Talk Like A Pirate Day, Wednesday, September 19! Here is just a little of what she had to say!
So you play Izzy on the Disney Junior Jake and the Never Land Pirate, what can you tell me about the new special “Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Jake Saves Bucky”?
Well it’s premiering on International Talk Like A Pirate Day on Wednesday, September 19! Which is a lot of fun since everyone gets to talk like a pirate along with us. In the special our crew and our ship Bucky has to go on race against Captain Hook and his crews ship. And if Captain Hook wins he gets to keep Bucky and our ship. So we get so scared and nervous since we don’t want to lose Bucky, we go to Peter Pan for help.
Is there a chance we might see Tinker Bell in this special?
I don’t know…..You’ll have to watch and see.
Izzy is the only girl in the Jake Crew, Do you ever wish Izzy had another girl on the ship with her or a girl friend on the show?
I like being the only girl sometime and the boys are super sweet to me and we have a lot of fun.
Jake and the Never Land Pirates is a very musical show, are you going to get to sing or there going to be any unique songs in the show?
We sing all the time on the show! I love all the music on the show. It’s so cute and I love singing with Jake.
You have so much going on right now with Jake and Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3, what do you have in store next?
Well I have season 3 of Jake coming up and the Dvd of the Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3 comes out the day before Jake and I have 3 episodes Lab Rats.
Here is a little more about Madison:
