REBEL GIVES KUNG FU VOICEOVER THE CHOP

-

AUSSIE actress Rebel Wilson has had to bow out of Kung Fu Panda 3 after production was extended on the film.

Wilson had already started recording for her role in the movie but had to withdraw after a production extension clashed with her schedule.

She was voicing the character of Mei Mei, but has been replaced by US starlet

Kate Hudson.

It was the second time Wilson was to lend her vocals to an animated feature, after she starred in Ice Age: Continenta­l Drift.

Hudson shared the news of the recasting on Instagram, posting a picture of her dressed up like Mei Mei the panda, with the caption: “Who’s that sassy Panda? It’s Mei Mei who’s me me in Kung Fu Panda Three Three!”
