Barbadian star Rihanna has been cast in the voice role of Smurfette in the upcoming Smurfs animated movie.

The singer will also serve as producer, write and perform new original songs for the untitled project.

She surprised attendees with the news at CinemaCon’s Paramount panel on Thursday, joking that she tried to get the role of Papa Smurf “but it didn’t work out.”

“I got to play a part and just imagine. I got to just be myself,” Rihanna said of the experience. “I got to show up in my pajamas in my third trimester and play a little blue badass.”

Hopefully the film will give her “a little bit of cool points” with her children someday, she added.The singer is expecting her second child with partner A$AP Rocky after welcoming a son last May.

“I can’t wait for you guys to see how [Smurfette has] been reimagined,” Rihanna said, calling animation a “fun journey.” She added, “The entire movie is going to be so fun. It’s so thrilling.”

The upcoming Smurfs animated is set to be released on February 14th, 2025.

Sony previously produced a three-movie franchise about the little blue creatures that infused live-action and starred Neil Patrick Harris, Katy Perry, Sofía Vergara, Hank Azaria, among others.

Filmmaker Chris Miller and film producer Matt Landon will direct Paramount’s upcoming version, while Jay Brown, Tyran “Ty-Ty” Smith and Ryan Harris will produce alongside Rihanna.

Rihanna previously lent her voice to the 2015 animated feature Home. Her other movie and TV credits include Ocean’s Eight, Guava Island, Bates Motel, and This is the End.
