Robert Downey Jr. will be starring in “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle,” a film based on the character from the popular Hugh Lofting children’s books from the 20's.
The story follows the character who is naturally a Doctor but claims that he can "talk to the animals".
No word yet on if this song will appear in the film.
(This was from the 1967 Rex Harrison musical “Doctor Dolittle”)
The character was also played by Eddie Murphy in a 1998 comedy and its sequels.
