Rihanna will voice a resourceful girl who avoids capture and unwittingly becomes the accomplice of a banished Boov (Parsons). Lopez will play the girl’s mother.
Tim Johnson (“Over the Hedge,” “Antz”) is directing from a screenplay by Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember. Chris Jenkins and Suzanne Buirgy are producing; DreamWorks Animation development head Gregg Taylor will oversee for the studio.
