What They’re Saying:

  • Amphibia creator and executive producer Matt Braly: "We've had some great guest stars this season but working with a film icon like George Takei was an absolute highlight. George was a master in the booth, bringing endless charisma to his character and making us laugh constantly. He even began reciting Shakespeare at one point, to our delight. George was also a big Asian American role model for me growing up, so it was really special to have him in the show."
