Shakira Joins the Voice Cast in Walt Disney Animation’s “Zootopia”

Life’s a zoo for Shakira

The 38-year-old Colombian singer has joined the voice cast of Walt Disney Animation‘s Zootopia, the studio announced Friday at its D23 Expo.


The script, by Jared Bush, is set in a modern mammal metropolis comprised of neighborhoods such as ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown.

Shakira will voice Gazelle the biggest pop star in Zootopia. She’ll also perform an all-new original song for the movie titled “Try Everything.”

The project is being directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore and co-directed by Bush.

Zootopia is slated for release on March 4, 2016.
