Rebel Wilson has joined the cast of 'Kung Fu Panda 3'.

The 'Bridesmaids' actress will join original cast members Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen and others to voice a character in the upcoming Dreamworks Animation caper, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

'Breaking Bad' actor Bryan Cranston and 'Casino Royale' star Mads Mikkelsen are also joining the project, which Dreamworks has revealed will follow Black's loveable panda Po ''as he continues on his journey mastering the art of Kung Fu ... and noodle slurping.''

Wilson has already lent her vocals to animated flick 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' and Bryan previously voiced a character in 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted'.

'Kung Fu Panda 2' director Jennifer Yuh Nelson will return to helm the feature, as will producer Melissa Cob, executive producer Guillermo del Toro, co-producer Jeffrey Hermann and writers/co-producers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger.

The film is scheduled for a December 23, 2015 release and is set to be the first ever movie 20th Century Fox will co-produce with China-based Oriental DreamWorks.

The first two films in the franchise earned $1.3 billion at the global box office after their releases in 2008 and 2011 respectively.
