Serena Williams


The tennis master, who is also the younger sister of Venus Williams, is teaming up with Exodus Film Group to make an animated movie that focuses on an orphaned toad called Henry Stokes.

Serena Williams is about to expand her career in film industry. During this year's Comic-Con, it has been reported that the tennis master is teaming up with Exodus Film Group to develop an animated motion picture called "WimbleToad".

The 30-year-old tennis icon, who has just claimed her fifth Wimbledon title, is set to lend her voice to one of the characters in "WimbleToad". She will also serve as an executive producer for the animation.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Serena's tennis-themed animation project is written by Steve Bevilacqua based on the original idea by Exodus' principle John Eraklis. The story focuses on an orphaned toad called Henry Stokes.

Henry, along with his best friend and fellow orphan Lily (Serena), has to "play for his freedom from a nefarious businessman who is scheming to take over the WimbleToad tournament and destroy their orphanage in the process."

In addition to the upcoming film, the younger sister of Venus Williams also has some other projects on her sleeve. She will soon be competing in the London Olympics. She is also busy running a fashion business on HSN as well as getting involved in some charity actions to benefit a school in Africa.
