Posted By Toyacoyah Brown December 4th, 2014 Last Updated on: December 4th, 2014

The Navajo Nation Museum announced on Wednesday that they are collaborating with Walt Disney Studios to dub the Pixar classic Finding Nemo into Navajo. This will be the second time a major motion picture has been dubbed into Navajo, with the first being Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

ABC 15 reports that casting calls are coming and they will be looking to cast men, women and children who are confident in their Navajo speaking ability and able to speak the dialogue with the force and emotion of the original voice actors.

Auditions will be held at the Navajo Nation Museum on Dec.19, and Dec. 20. Those interested in auditioning can call 928-871-7941 to book a time slot. Walk-ins are welcome as well.
