Chance the Rapper is taking his talent to the big screen! It has been announced that Chance will be getting animated as he joins the cast of Trolls 2!

According to Variety, the “No Problem” rapper will join the star-studded cast and will record songs for the film’s soundtrack. Music genres for the film will vary from hip-hop, country, and pop, to hard rock, EDM and funk. Chance will be joining cast members including James Corden, Aino Jawo, Kunal Nayyar and Ron Funches. New voice cast members also include “Hamilton” star Anthony Ramos, Jamie Doran, Flula Borg, and Karan Soni.

“We are thrilled to have these talented artists join the cast of ‘Trolls 2,” President of DreamWorks Animation Film Group, Chris deFaria said. “This film, like the first, gives our cast an opportunity to show their performance range — integrating comedy, adventure, and emotion with centerpiece musical numbers that resonate with fans across the globe. This second film will be every bit as unique in design, and we can’t wait for audiences to experience the adventurous journey our filmmakers are taking Poppy, Branch and all of the Trolls on next.”

The sequel to the 2016 blockbuster will be directed by Walt Dohrn (Spongebob Squarepants) and co-directed by David P. Smith (The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show) – with Gina Shay serving as producer. As Variety reports, the sequel will follow a mysterious threat that puts the Trolls in danger. Following the threat, Poppy, Branch and their friends must go on an epic quest through unfamiliar lands to bring the “feuding” Trolls together and unite them against doom.

“Trolls 2” is slated to hit theaters April 10, 2020!
