Wilson has already lent her vocals to animated flick 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' and Bryan previously voiced a character in 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted'.

'Kung Fu Panda 2' director Jennifer Yuh Nelson will return to helm the feature, as will producer Melissa Cob, executive producer Guillermo Del Toro, co-producer Jeffrey Hermann and writers/co-producers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger.

The film is scheduled for a December 23, 2015 release and is set to be the first ever movie 20th Century Fox will co-produce with China-based Oriental DreamWorks.

The first two films in the franchise earned $1.3 billion at the global box office after their releases in 2008 and 2011 respectively.
