Multiple selling and award-winning Latin singer and actress Shakira has signed on as part of the voice cast of Disney animation Zootopia.
The Walt Disney animation film which will be produced by Clark Spencer will have Shakira star alongside Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman with the duo of Byron Howard and Rich Moore as the directors. The announcement was made by the studio yesterday at their D23 studios.
Shakira will play the character ‘Gazelle’ in a role that will have her also sing original song for the project titled Try Everything.
Zootopia in the upcoming movie is a city of animals who live and work together. Unlike a typical animal community or jungle, the animals in the city of Zootopia don’t eat one another. A rare situation you will say but isn’t it why it is called fiction?
Don’t worry you won’t have to wait too long to see how things pan out as Walt Disney also included in their announcement the project’s release date – March 4, 2016.
