Jane Fonda has been tapped to voice one of the leads in the new Apple and Skydance animated film Luck. She will voice "The Dragon", the CEO of Good Luck and the luckiest ancient being in all the land. Luck "centers around the unluckiest girl in the world, who after stumbling upon the never-before-seen world of good and bad luck, must join together with magical creatures to uncover a force more powerful than even luck itself." Apple and Skydance are tied at the hip now, after agreeing to a multi-year deal to create animated projects for the company. You can see the debut image of Jane Fonda's character below.

Her film credits include "Youth," "Klute," "Coming Home," "The China Syndrome," "Nine to Five," "Rollover," "On Golden Pond," "The Morning After" and "The Dollmaker."
