The 'Where Have You Been' star will make her voice-acting debut in Happy Smekday! in 2014.

Rihanna has reportedly been confirmed to star as one of the female leads in a new animated film from DreamWorks Studios.

The 'We Found Love' star will join The Big Bang Theory lead Jim Parsons for Happy Smekday!, an adaptation of author Adam Rex's children's novel The True Meaning Of Smekday.

Rihanna will make her voice acting debut in the DreamWorks Animation adaptation, following her on screen debut in Peter Berg's epic sci-fi Battleship earlier this year.

Happy Smekday! will tell the story of a teen girl who goes on the run with a friendly alien after Earth is invaded by an alien race.

'Where Have You Been' singer Rihanna was celebrating this week after reaching a new milestone of 21 million followers on Twitter.

Happy Smekday! is tentatively set for release towards the end of 2014.
