Katy Perry and her fiancé Orlando Bloom are set to make their debut in one of the world's most beloved animated series, Peppa Pig. 

The couple will voice brand-new characters in celebration of the show's 20th anniversary. 

The special, titled Peppa Pig Wedding Party Special, will air in a three-part series starting May 25, exclusively on Milkshake.

Orlando will take on the role of Mr. Raccoon, a jeweler who assists Mr. Bull and Ms. Cow as they prepare for their wedding, according to Entertainment Weekly

Fans are eagerly anticipating this star-studded addition to the iconic British cartoon.

Both wrapped up their voice work for Peppa Pig ahead of the SAG-AFTRA strike, an ongoing effort by actors to secure fair contracts from Hollywood's studios and streaming platforms. 

Hasbro had previously announced Perry's involvement in a special episode last year.

"We’re incredibly thrilled to have such an A-list talent join the family-fun adventures in PEPPA PIG!" remarked Olivier Dumont, President of Hasbro Entertainment. 

Perry is set to make her debut in a three-part series of the British cartoon, portraying the character Ms. Leopard, a friendly neighborhood dressmaker.

"As a loving parent and fan of Peppa herself, Katy Perry is a perfect fit to voice the character of Ms. Leopard," added Dumont, alluding to Perry's daughter Daisy, whom she shares with Orlando Bloom.
