Get ready to hear Cher‘s voice in a whole new way. The singer stars in the new animated flick, Bobbleheads: The Movie, voicing her very own cartoon collectible.
The legend tells Good Housekeeping she jumped at the chance to do voice-over work because it’s not an opportunity she gets often.
“I’ve wanted to do it my whole life, but nobody ever wanted me to,” Cher says. “I don’t really have a voice for animation — I have kind of a strange, monotone voice. So, I was a little bit trepidatious. But then when I started to get into it, it was so much fun.”
In the film, Bobblehead Cher offers her advice and wisdom to a group of misfit bobbleheads on an adventure to save one of their own. Cher says she was drawn to the movie’s message of embracing your individuality.
“My mother [Georgia Holt] was so great about telling me [I was special], because I was different,” Cher recalls. “She was very great about supporting me and saying, ‘You’re special and some day the whole world will know it.’ I think people have to know they’re special, and they have to be honest with themselves. We have to impart that to kids.”
Bobbleheads: The Movie is out now on Digital, DVD and On Demand. It will head to Netflix at a later date.
