This year has become a big year for fans of Selena Gomez, with her return to music alongside being cast in a movie set to be a box-office hit. As a user of Twitter and Instagram, I am up-to-date with singers and actors. Two things caught my eye this year: Selena Gomez’s return to music and the Dolittle movie. Watch the official trailer below:
Usually cast-listing goes onto Google as soon as the movie has been announced. That usually winds up being a presumption, however, and usually it’s best to just wait until actors announce it themselves. The movie trailer was dropped, the cast list was finalized so Robert Downey Jr posted a tweet suggesting a roll call.
Selena replied to the tweet with a pun and a giraffe emoji; suggesting that she could perhaps be playing the role of a giraffe. Her fans all went wild with her response. Through the popular Twitter account ‘Popcraze’, fans have been dubbing it Selena’s A Star is Born moment.
Robert Downey Jr. made use of his Instagram, posting his roll-call on there. Alongside Selena, there are some big names starring in Dolittle. You can find the full cast here.
Despite popular belief, Dolittle is not a remake of the infamous 1988 film titled ‘Dr. Dolittle.’ Rather, it’s an adaption of the award winning novel, The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle which was published in 1922. You can find that novel, alongside the others, on Amazon.
Details as to whether Selena is providing a song for the soundtrack is unknown, but regardless I’m sure the movie is going to be absolutely amazing!!
When is Dolittle coming out?
Dolittle comes out January 17 ,2020, in the U.S., and on March 7, 2020, in the U.K. You can find more release dates here.
