Sylvester Stallone

Unlike live-action Hollywood films, animation isn’t star-driven. Stories are the stars in animation and, if you don’t believe it, look at the biggest animated film of all time: Frozen. Talented actors and singers in every role, none of which can yet sell a movie wholly on their own. Still, having big stars in your animated film doesn’t mean it’s bad. Pixar regularly gets some of the biggest names in the world to voice their characters.

Which is to say, the newly announced cast members for the animated film Animal Crackers are a mixed bag. But it’s a great cast none the less. Produced by Blue Dream Studios, Animal Crackers will feature the voices of Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito, Ian McKellen, Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, Harvey Fierstein and others.
