The holiday season is approaching and the Grinch is coming to steal Christmas once again. Universal Pictures and Illumination will re-adapt Dr. Suess’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” with Pharrell Williams serving as narrator.

According to Deadline, Williams will join the cast of Illumination’s The Grinch. The rapper-producer, who previously helped the studio giant’s Despicable Me top box-office sales with his mega-hit “Happy,” will join Benedict Cumberbatch, who will voice the Grinch, as well as Keenan Thompson, Rashida Jones, Angela Lansbury and Cameron Seely.

Along with Williams, rapper Tyler, the Creator will also contribute to the Christmas movie. On Tuesday (Sept. 18), the “See You Again” rapper revealed that he recorded a song dubbed “I Am The Grinch.” Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman composed the re-imagined version of the Grinch classic song “You’re A Mean One.” Tyler shared a snippet of the song on his Instagram.
