Warner Bros. is expanding its growing animation unit beyond Lego properties.

Andy Samberg and Kelsey Grammer have been tapped to voice-star in Storks, an animated feature being co-directed by Nicholas Stoller and Doug Sweetland, the latter of whom was behind the Oscar-nominated short Presto.

Warners has also set a release date of Sept. 23, 2016.

While no plot lines were delivered, the studio promises “a fresh and funny look at the fable behind storks.”

Stoller is producing the film with Brad Lewis

Glenn Ficarra, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, John Requa and Jared Stern are serving as executive producers.

Samberg previously voice-starred in Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Grammer is no stranger to animated fare as he has done exemplary work as Sideshow Bob for The Simpsons television show, among many other voiceover credits.
