Rihanna is really filling up her acting resume…next up she will star in a leading role in Happy Smekday! (2014), a feature film based on the critically acclaimed book “The True Meaning of Smekday” by Adam Rex, alongside Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Jim Parsons.
“Adam’s hilarious book is the perfect recipe for a compelling animated feature and we are ecstatic that Jim Parsons and Rihanna will contribute their immense talents to the production,” said Bill Damaschke, DreamWorks Animation’s Chief Creative Officer. “We’re also thrilled that Tim Johnson is back to direct another DreamWorks Animation feature film and show the world just how fun an alien invasion can be!”
“When I read Adam Rex’s remarkable book, I knew it would make an amazing film. I can’t wait to introduce audiences to the unique world and characters of Happy Smekday!” added Tim Johnson.
In Happy Smekday! an alien race invades Earth and uses it as a hideout from their mortal enemy. When one lowly alien accidentally notifies the enemies of his whereabouts, he is forced to go on the run with a teenage girl. The two become unlikely buddies and embark on a comical globe-trotting adventure to right his wrongs, in which our alien hero learns what it really means to be human.
