"I've always wanted to voice an animated film, I love animated films. And I think ParaNorman is the perfect story for the medium, especially stop-motion animation," she said, reports Flicks and Bits.

Kendrick continued: "This story of this young boy, Norman, who can see and speak to the dead. This kid is bullied at school and misunderstood at home, and he ends up using this thing that he's ashamed of, this thing that makes him different, this special skill, to try to save the town from a zombie invasion.

"I think there's something so otherworldly about the story that makes it such a great fit for stop-motion."

Casey Affleck, John Goodman, Leslie Mann and Christopher Mintz-Plasse have also lent their voices to the project.

ParaNorman opens on August 17 in the US and September 14 in the UK.
