Some of the Scarab’s lines in the film’s local release will be in Tagalog
The Scarab is an ancient alien relic crucial to the story of the DC Super Hero in the upcoming action-adventure film “Blue Beetle.”
In the movie, the Scarab, known as Khaji-Da, plays a vital role in guiding Jaime Reyes, portrayed by “Cobra Kai” breakout star Xolo Maridueña, as he embarks on a journey to discover and harness his boundless new powers, transforming into the Super Hero Blue Beetle.
In the original version, singer/actress Becky G brings the Scarab’s voice to life.
Inka Magnaye, an esteemed figure in the niche voicework industry in the Philippines, brings her unique charm to the character of the Scarab. Notably, some of the character’s lines are delivered in Tagalog, adding a special touch for Pinoy fans.
Inka boasts an impressive body of work, including voicework for notable brands such as Philippine Airlines, where her soothing voice is familiar to passengers in the in-flight instructional safety announcement.
She has also lent her voice to several brand advertisements. She also hosts her popular podcast titled “Sleeping Pill With Inka.”
Her remarkable achievement lies in being the first Philippine-based Filipino talent to contribute her voice to a DC film, and she will receive proper credit in the movie’s credits!
“Blue Beetle” follows the story of Jaime Reyes, a recent college graduate, who returns home with dreams for the future, only to find that things have changed. His life takes an unexpected turn when he becomes the host of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology, the Scarab.
The Scarab gifts him an extraordinary suit of armor, endowing him with extraordinary and unpredictable powers, leading him to become the Super Hero Blue Beetle.
Fans will get to experience Inka’s portrayal of the Scarab in “Blue Beetle” once it hits Philippine cinemas on August 16.
