After making the whole world sing his songs, Shawn Mendes makes his first step in Hollywood with his participation in the upcoming movie "Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile".

The 23-year-old pop singer will lend his voice to the main character of the film, the children's favorite crocodile Lyle.

In the new teaser from the trailer of "Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile" we meet for the first time Lyle (Shawn Mendes), a singing crocodile, who meets the Primm family as he moves to her new home. While at first they are afraid of him, they soon like him and accept him in their family. The video then follows Lyle's adventures as he explores the city with his new family.

The film also stars Javier Bardem, Constance Wu, Brett Gelman, Scoot McNairy and Winslow Fegley. "Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile" is based on Bernard Waber's popular children's book series of the same name and is directed by Will Gordon and Josh Speck.

Shawn Mendes collaborated with creators Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the duo behind the musicals "Dear Evan Hansen", "The Greatest Showman" and "La La Land", to write the original songs that Lyle will sing in the film. and described the process as exciting in an interview with People.

"What was really amazing was that Lyle as a character only sings, so I felt very comfortable playing his role," he said.

"I could do what I do best, and I also identify so much with his story and his character that I felt natural. "When I was approached to help create the music for the adaptation of such a classic book, I did not have to think about it and it was such a fun departure from what I am used to," he continued.

While Shawn Mendes has released four albums that have topped the charts, composing music for a film has proven to be a "truly incredible challenge".

"Making music for such a film with them was an exciting process," the singer said of his collaboration with Oscar-winning Golden Globe and Tony duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

"But the most difficult thing is that when you sing for a movie instead of your own album, you really have to capture the nuances of the emotion behind each verse and each note and match it with the way the character portrays it on screen. . "It was an experience that taught a lot," he added.

Shawn Mendes hopes that the film will grow for many generations and gain many viewers, young and old.

"This movie is so exciting because I really feel like it's for everyone, whether it's my kids one day or my family and friends now. "I am so happy to be part of a film that has such a positive message and that has allowed me to express my musical abilities through cinema," he said.


 
The description of "Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile" states about the plot of the film: "When the Primm family moves to New York, their little son Josh finds it difficult to adjust to the new school and his new friends. That all changes when he discovers Lyle - a crocodile who sings and loves baths, caviar and good music - who lives in the attic of his new home. "

"The two become fast friends, but when Lyle's existence is threatened by the bad neighbor Mr. Grumps, the Primm must team up with Lyle's charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti, to show the world that families can have the most unexpected source and that there is no problem with a large crocodile singing and still having bigger personality ".
