Peppa Pig and Katy Perry is the collaboration we didn’t know we were waiting for.

On Wednesday, Hasbro revealed that the 38-year-old Teenage Dream superstar will be joining the cast of Peppa Pig as the voice of a new character for the animated series’ upcoming threequel 20th anniversary special. Perry, well-known for her exclusive fashion, will feature as dressmaker Ms. Leopard in the happy Peppa Pig Wedding Party Special. Her character will dress Mr. Bull and Mrs. Cow for their wedding which is announced as a surprise, putting everyone in haste to prepare for the event with only one day at hand.

We’re incredibly thrilled to have such an A-list talent join the family-fun adventures in Peppa Pig! As a loving parent and fan of Peppa herself, Katy Perry is a perfect fit to voice the character of Ms. Leopard,

stated Hasbro Entertainment president Olivier Dumont.

He added,

Reaching this brand milestone of two decades and being able to work with outstanding talent like Katy is a testament to the worldwide success of Peppa Pig and her ability to deliver entertainment no fans will want to miss.

Dumont also observed that Perry’s inclusion in the Peppa Pig Wedding Party Special “is just one of the many exciting projects we have in the pipeline” to pay homage to the show’s 20th anniversary, besides “live events and attractions, products and partnerships, Peppa parties all over the world and much more.”

Amelie Bea Smith features as the main character, Peppa Pig surrounds the cheeky pink animal as she sets foot on new adventures with her family including Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig, and younger brother George, and her friends of other species. A press release revealed that the Peppa Pig Wedding Party Special completed its production before the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes while casting and filming abided by the SAG-AFTRA rules.

Perry‘s addition in Peppa Pig embarks on her new role in an animated installment. She acted earlier in Smurfette in 2011’s The Smurfs as well as 2013’s The Smurfs 2 and played on one episode of The Simpsons. The Never Really Over singer announced last year that she’ll feature in a pivotal role in the latest animated musical film Melody. A source reported at the time that her role is a sweet but shy singer with a magical voice who must triumph over the envious, evil pop diva Rose Stellar. The film is set in New York City.

The American Idol judge will originally create music for Melody. She is also the producer of the film.
