Kate McKinnon Joins the Cast of Leap! 

Posted on

 

It’s Kate McKinnon — times three!

The hilarious Saturday Night Live standout will be voicing three characters in the upcoming animated movie Leap!, about two young orphans who decide to take a leap of faith and follow their dreams.

Elle Fanning is lending her voice to the lead character Félicie while Nat Wolff voices Victor, Félicie’s best friend at the orphanage who decides to leave with her and go to Paris. But when the two leave for their adventure, they encounter a small hiccup when Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. (McKinnon voices Félicie’s Mother, among her three roles.)

The movie also stars Maddie Ziegler, Mel Brooks and Carly Rae Jepsen, with original music by Sia, Demi Lovato and Jepsen.

McKinnon rose to prominence thanks to her celebrated portrayal of former Democratic presidential candidate Hilary Clinton during the election season, and will be seen next in Rough Night alongside Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz and Ilana Glazer.

Leap! jumps into theaters April 21.
