The animated movie Animal Crackers might have the strangest voice cast ever

Forget the reveal of the new STAR WARS title and forget the news of a fourth TOY STORY movie - today we celebrate something bigger. We celebrate finding out about a movie called ANIMAL CRACKERS (not the great Marx Bros. feature), an animated tale about a mysterious box of Animal Crackers! Now before you get on the phone and text all your friends, wait until you hear who is voicing this masterpiece.

Sir Ian McKellen, Danny DeVito, Sylvester Stallone, Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné and Harvey Fierstein have all been cast. Why this isn’t getting a fall awards season release is beyond me; there isn’t an official release date yet, but we do have the first poster below to hold you over. The movie is expected to be completed in the summer of 2016 and was directed by Tony Bancroft (MULAN).

Scott Christian Sava and Blue Dream Studios are bringing this one to life and here’s what Sava had to say about his cast:

“When I was writing ANIMAL CRACKERS I had specific voices in my head.  Certain characters I wrote with actors in mind.  Horatio was always Sir Ian McKellen.  Brock was totally Patrick Warburton.  Bullet-Man could be no one else but Stallone!  To find out that each and every one of these actors have agreed to come on board this film and bring these characters to life … I’m flipping out.”

And here’s the official synopsis for Animal Crackers:

ANIMAL CRACKERS tells the story of a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers!  The crackers, as it turns out, magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten!  Monkeys.  Giraffes.  Lions.  Tigers… and Bears… OH MY!

So here’s a question: do these actors know they have been cast in this movie? I’m calling it right now that this is the earliest April fool’s joke by a group of celebrity agents we have ever seen.
