Horton Hears a Who! picture

Isla Fisher, Jaime Pressly, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Dan Fogler, Carol Burnett, Amy Poehler, Dane Cook, and Jonah Hill will all lend their voices in Fox's animated flick "Horton Hears a Who."

The little town of Who-ville sure gets merrier by now with the arrival of nine talents namely Isla Fisher, Jaime Pressly, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Dan Fogler, Carol Burnett, Amy Poehler, Dane Cook, and Jonah Hill.

Yes, all the names have joyously been included in the voice cast of 20th Century Fox Animation's CG toon "Horton Hears a Who", produced by "Ice Age" makers Blue Sky Studios, joining the likes of Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, who are set to voice the titular character and the Mayor of Who-ville, respectively.

Based on Dr. Seuss's 1954 children's book of the same title, the picture centers on an elephant named Horton who hears a cry for help coming from a tiny speck of dust floating through the air then determines to help despite being considered by his community to be out of his mind. Aside from Burnett voicing the always-skeptical Kangaroo, no other characters were announced.

Adapting the classic into the big screen are scribes Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio with Jimmy Hayward and Steve Martino both taking director's seat while Christopher Meledandri, Chris Wedge, and Audrey Geisel will all serve as executive producers. Fox Animation has already set a March 14, 2008 date to release the movie in U.S. theaters.
