Los Angeles: Ace tennis player Serena Williams is teaming up with Exodus Film Group to develop an animated motion picture called ‘WimbleToad’.

The 30-year-old tennis icon, who has just claimed her fifth Wimbledon title, is set to lend her voice to one of the characters in ‘WimbleToad’. She will also serve as an executive producer for the animation, reported Aceshowbiz.

Serena`s tennis-themed animation project is written by Steve Bevilacqua based on the original idea by Exodus` principle John Eraklis. The story focuses on an orphaned toad called Henry Stokes.

The film follows the story of Henry, along with his best friend and fellow orphan Lily (Serena), who has to play for his freedom from a nefarious businessman who is scheming to take over the ‘WimbleToad’ tournament and destroy their orphanage in the process.
