Bill Hader voiced more amazing animated films than we can count over the years, and he’s getting ready to do it again. The SNL alum will lead the voice cast of Warner Bros. Pictures Animation’s The Cat in the Hat along with Quinta Brunson and Bowen Yang.

Warner Bros’s new take on the Dr. Seuss classic hails from writers and directors Alessandro Carloni and Erica Rivinoja and sees The Cat taking on his toughest assignment yet. When a pair of siblings struggles with their move to a new town, it’s up to the titular hero to cheer them up.

Hader (Barry) will voice The Cat, and he’ll be in pretty good company! He’ll be joined by Quinta Brunson (Abbott Elementary), Bowen Yang (Saturday Night Live), Xochitl Gomez (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness), Matt Berry (What We Do in The Shadows) and Paula Pell (Girls5eva) in supporting voice roles.

Susan Brandt, the President and CEO of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, is excited to see such an exceptional group of talent join the effort to bring this iconic character to the big screen.

“It’s been an amazing experience collaborating with the team from Warner Bros. Pictures Animation so far, as they truly understand what it takes to capture the magic of The Cat in the Hat and share his brand of imagination and joy with a new generation of Dr. Seuss fans,” said Brandt in a statement.

Cat in the Hat will be released by Warner Bros. on March 6, 2026.
