Grammy-winning international singer Shakira will voice Gazelle, a pop star, in the animated movie “Zootopia.”

Attendees of D23 Expo 2015 got the news today via a taped message from Shakira.

She will join Ginnifer Goodwin (“Once Upon a Time”), who will voice the rabbit rooker officer Judy Hopps.

Certain new scenes from the film were also revealed and a teaser of the new original song “Try Everything” performed by Shakira and written by Sia and Stargate.

Here’s the synopsis:

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

Walt Disney Animation’s “Zootopia” will be in theaters next year on March 4.
