Shakira’s heading to the big screen – in animated, and animal, form.

It’s just been confirmed at Disney’s D23 expo that Colombian superstar Shakira will play a role in Disney’s newest upcoming film Zootopia.

Shakira will play the role of a pop star gazelle – yes, you read that right – and will also record a brand new song called Try Everything, written by Sia.

The Hips Don’t Lie singer tweeted an image of her character, because, really, it has to be seen to be believed:

CinemaBlend summarized the Zootopia plotline:

Zootopia’s story revolves around a law-abiding rabbit named Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) as she butts heads with a sly fox/con artist named Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) in the city of Zootopia – a city inhabited exclusively by animals, but you probably guessed that already.

It’s not the first time Shaks has tried out acting, either. She has previously starred in Ugly Betty and Wizards of Waverley Place.
