Thesp will voice role in toon pic

Angelina Jolie has chosen her first post-baby project, signing on to voice a role in DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda.”

Jolie joins Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu and Ian McShane in the CGI pic.

Jolie will voice Tigress, one of the “furious five” martial-arts masters who helps train Po (Black) to become Kung Fu Panda.

Scheduled for release in May 2008, “Kung Fu Panda” is about a lowly waiter in a noodle restaurant whose shape doesn’t lend itself to kung fu fighting.

But when powerful enemies are at the gates, all hopes are pinned on a prophesy naming Po as the “Chosen One” to save the day.
