Sometimes the news just sort of makes sense, and sometimes it doesn’t — hey, that’s showbiz! Well in this case all the buzz is about Shawn Mendes in a new movie.

The Cher stan is voicing a live-action crocodile in the Sony musical adaptation of the children’s book Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile.

The vocals from Mendes in the short snippets of the trailer get us excited about what is to come. This will be the perfect movie for the whole family.

Directed by Will Speck and Josh Gordon, Javier Bardem, Constance Wu, and Winslow Fegley will star alongside the titular croc. Executive producers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote original songs for the film with Mendes and a handful of other songwriters.

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is coming on October 7, 2022.
