Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
It's one thing performing before the camera, but quite another to bring life and expression to an onscreen animation. These stars are not just talented in front of the lens, they have a sense of humour too and have lent their voices to some of most beloved animated characters around...
When the alien race of the Boov invade Earth, the 27-year-old's charter Tip, avoids getting captured and has to flee! Two of the movie's greatest songs 'Towards the Sun' and 'Feel the Light' were created by Rihanna to run alongside the flick as part of a concept album. The film also stars the recognisable voices of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Steve Martin!
The 34-year-old has lent his voice to both BooBoo from 'Yogi Bear' and Artie from 'Shrek'. We expect his new baby boy Silas Randall Timberlake will enjoy hearing his father in these roles when he gets a bit older!
The 34-year-old American singer and actress is the voice to one of the most famous Disney characters of all time - Princess Elsa's younger sister Anna in 'Frozen'.
The late and great actor is of course the much-loved Gene from the classic Disney film. The larger-than-life magical character continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of generation after generation.
The 42-year-old actress is known for her sassy personality - who better to play the fiery Princess Fiona in everybody's favourite fairy-tale turned upside down?
When producers were figuring out who to cast as the voice of the sheriff in Pixar's classic animation, they needed someone who could bring to life Woody's special mixture of enthusiasm and exasperation. The movie's agents definitely knew what they were doing when they cast Tom Hanks in the role and we couldn't imagine anyone other the 58-year-old as the rootin' tootin' cowboy we all know and love.
No-one can deny that the sultry actress looks great in front of the lens. However, she's equally great at putting expression into children's animated characters. The 39-year-old has voiced Tigress in 'Kung Fu Panda 1 and 2' and also the scheming Lola in 'Shark Tale'.
The 59-year-old voiced the dashing John Smith and also sang in the 1995 film. The movie was released to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the real Pocahontas’ birth - how cool is that?
The 45-year-old has voiced several animated characters, including Katie in 'Monsters Vs Aliens', Vanessa Bloome in 'Bee Movie' and of course, the adorable fish Angie in 'Shark Tale'.
Yep, Baby's father in 'Dirty Dancing' is none other than the suave French candlestick Lumiere!
The 54-year-old did such a good job in 'Shrek' as Puss In Boots that they've made a feature film of the crafty ginger cat, also starring Salma Hayek.
The 46-year-old is of course the voice of that cheeky fish Oscar who dreams of a better life in the film 'Shark Tale'. Looking at the two of them side-by-side it's not hard to see the resemblances - Just look at those matching toothy grins!
Okay, so we know technically Emma Watson is actually playing rather than voicing the Disney's brainiest Princess (very fittingly) in the upcoming film, but we couldn't resist popping her in anyway.
