The Grammy-winning rapper took to Twitter on Thursday (March 30) to announce her appearance in the children’s film.
Baby Shark’s Big Movie is set to be a family affair as Cardi’s husband Offset as well as their four-year-old daughter Kulture and one-year-old son Wave will have their voices used in the Paramount+ hit.
“Happy to announce that me & my family will be in the BABY SHARKS BIG MOVIE,” Cardi wrote accompanied by a promo poster of the movie showcasing other celebrity additions to the cast.

Nickelodeon, The Pinkfong Company and Paramount+ collectively announced additions to Baby Shark’s first feature-length film that includes NSYNC’s Lance Bass, actor Ashley Tisdale, comedian Aparna Nancherla, SNL‘s Ego Nwodim and more.
According to PEOPLE, Baby Shark’s Big Movie will be released later this year centering around the 2023 holiday season.
The Bronx bombshell has long been a fan of Baby Shark since the viral earworm of a jingle took over the minds of kids across the country in 2016.
Cardi B tweeted out her own version of the “Baby Shark” lyrics in 2018 and then made the song her runway soundtrack while strutting around her mansion’s pool patio in early 2019.
Cardi is no stranger to Hollywood as she previously starred alongside Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer and Lizzo in 2019’s Hustlers. The 30-year-old will also be continuing her role as Leysa in Fast X which is set to hit theaters on May 19.
However, Cardi’s lead role debut has been put on hold after she dropped out of Assisted Living due to reportedly being “overextended” just days before the film was slated to start production in New York last year.
