*South Africa-based Triggerfish Animation Studios has added Laurence Fishburne to the voice cast of 3D animated feature “Khumba,” reports Deadline.com.

Fishburne joins Loretta Devine, Liam Neeson, AnnaSophia Robb, Jake T. Austin and Richard E. Grant in the story of a plucky half-striped Zebra who’s blamed for a drought by his superstitious herd and meets a wacky group of characters as he goes on a journey to earn his full stripes.

Millennium will release “Khumba” in the U.S. later this year.

Meanwhile, Fishburne premieres tonight (April 4) at 10 in his new NBC series “Hannibal.” Watch the promo below.
