Selena Gomez Joins The Star-Studded Cast For New Doctor Dolittle


Selena Gomez, Octavia Spencer and Kumail Nanjiani are among the A-listers who will star alongside Robert Downey Jr. in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle. 

Variety reports that Downey revealed the full cast on Twitter Tuesday, which named Gomez as Betsy the Giraffe, Spencer as Dab-Dab the Duck and Nanjiani as Plimpton the Ostrich. 

Other stars who will be voicing animals in the film include Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes, and John Cena. 

The film is based on the character from the ‘20s series of children’s books by Hugh Lofting, in which a Victorian-era physician opts to treat animals instead of humans because he’s able to speak with them. 

It’s set to hit theaters on April 12, 2019.
