The project features Robert, with Selena Gomez, Tom Holland, Emma Thompson, and Ralph Fiennes also in the voice cast as well. Jim Broadbent, Antonio Banderas, and Michael Sheen will portray live-action characters.
The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle will be directed by Stephen Gaghan and based on the character from the 1920s series of children’s books by Hugh Lofting, in which a Victorian-era physician opts to treat animals instead of humans because he has the ability to speak with them.
Actor Eddie Murphy starred in the 1998 film Doctor Dolittle and its 2001 sequel.
The film is slated for release on April 12, 2019.
