Lana Condor is Lending Her Voice to a Netflix Series
A lazy bear and his best bud are coming to Netflix…
The new Netflix original series “Rilakkuma & Kaoru” is based on a character produced by the Japanese company San-X. Rilakkuma is a custard loving stuffed bear that lives with Kaoru, a hardworking girl just trying to make it through the year. Rilakkuma is featured on stationary, accessories, clothing and much more in Japan. He’s kind of an icon! The series will be released on Netflix in English and there is also a Japanese version, its only right.
Lana expressed her excitement to voice Kaoru via Instagram.
