Zoe Saldana will be taking over theaters on April 12, as she will bring to life the character of Adelina Fortnight in MGM's Missing Link.

In the stop-motion animated film, audiences will go on a wild ride alongside Mr. Link (voice by Zach Galifianakis) who travels in search of the fabled Shangri-La and those like him.

Along the way, he will receive help from Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) and Zoe's adventorous Adelina.

“It’s interesting because you get to use your imagination," Saldana said about working in a south booth for this film.

"When you play a character, I’m that kind of person that if I say yes, that means I’m going to be open for you to give me all the tools that I need for me to just imagine this individual in my mind and become that person.

So hours can go by and you don’t even realize that you’ve been in a dark booth working with somebody who isn’t even the actor you’re supposed to be with but you’ve been role-playing. It’s fun. I love it.”

Saldana, who is a mom to three boys, also shares the important message she hopes viewers will take home after watching the film.

"I think that accepting others as they are is a good message, and also self acceptance," Saldana told NY's Pix 11 at the premiere about the Chris Butler directed film's message. "Before you seek approval of others, first learn to like yourself and thats what I feel is the biggest take away from 'Missing Link'."
