On the Bingo Card that is 2023 – did anyone have Katy Perry Joins Peppa Pig?
Yes, this is real, and we’re kinda excited
The music legend, 38, will appear as a guest star in a future episode of Peppa Pig.
The three-part episode, titled Peppa Pig Wedding Party Special, will air in Spring 2024 and will debut a new character – seamstress Ms Leopard (voiced by Katy).
Ms Leopard, a suitable moniker for the Roar hitmaker, will help Peppa and her pals prepare for the show’s first-ever wedding, when Mr Bull and Mrs Cow surprise everyone with their wedding announcement, leaving them only one day to prepare for the celebrations!
The episodes are sure to get kids and their families involved in the joyful, inventive, and oinktastic events that real-life weddings bring to loved ones everywhere.
Hitmaker I Kissed A Gir Katy is a devoted mother to her gorgeous daughter Daisy Dove, whom she shares with boyfriend Orlando Bloom.
And, given that she is a Peppa Pig lover, her current endeavour is all sorts of sweet.
Her presence may not be the only exciting item in the works, as Hasbro is planning to commemorate Peppa Pig’s 20th anniversary next year.
No, we can’t believe one of our fave pigs (other than Percy) is 20!
‘We’re tremendously happy to have such an A-list performer join the family-fun adventures of Peppa Pig!’ stated Olivier Dumont, President of Hasbro Entertainment.
‘As a loving parent and fan of Peppa herself, Katy Perry is a perfect fit to voice the character of Ms Leopard.
‘Reaching this brand milestone of two decades and being able to work with outstanding talent like Katy is a testament to the worldwide success of Peppa Pig and her ability to deliver entertainment no fans will want to miss.’
Oliver added: ‘This is just one of the many exciting projects we have in the pipeline for fans and families to commemorate Peppa Pig’s 20th anniversary in 2024, such as live events and attractions, products and partnerships, Peppa parties all over the world and much more.
‘Everyone’s invited to our year-long celebration!’
All casting and filming for Katy’s episodes took place before to the Saf-Aftra and WGA strikes, which have already concluded, and are in accordance with SAG-AFTRA regulations and conditions.
