"I saw an early cut of the film and loved it – it’s a must-see for the entire family," said Andre, an Australian-born performer who is a regular on British television and lives in the U.K. "It is great to be working on something that I can see with my children, and I am so excited about this partnership."
Ian Morton, vp of international promotions at Twentieth Century Fox added, "We are thrilled to be forging a partnership with Peter and our new family adventure comedy from DreamWorks Animation, Mr. Peabody & Sherman. Peter was the natural fit for the film and it is great to see that the film has inspired such a great song."
The movie details the story of a boy and his dog who use a time machine to go on adventures but wind up changing world events by accident and dealing with the fallout.
