A third echoed the excitement: "Omg this is amazing @kylieminogue you're going to make such a cute little Bush pig can't wait to watch," as a fourth wrote: "Can't wait to watch it girl! #slayqueen."

The synopsis for the movie, which lands on Netflix today, reads: "Tired of being locked in a reptile house where humans gawk at them like they're monsters, a ragtag group of Australia's deadliest creatures plot a daring escape from their zoo to the Outback, a place where they’ll fit in without being judged for their scales and fangs.

"Leading the group is Maddie, a poisonous snake with a heart of gold, who bands together with a self-assured Thorny Devil lizard Zoe, a lovelorn hairy spider Frank, and a sensitive scorpion Nigel. But when their nemesis — Pretty Boy, a cute but obnoxious koala — unexpectedly joins their escape, Maddie and the gang have no choice but to take him with them."

Lending their voice to the characters alongside Kylie are some big names in acting who hail from Australia including Isla Fisher, Guy Pearce and Tim Minchin.
