ATLANTA, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- The soon-to-be-released animated film "Delgo" features the final performance by Hollywood actress Anne Bancroft, Fathom Studios said Monday.

Bancroft, who is best known for her roles in "Great Expectations," "The Turning Point," "The Elephant Man," "The Graduate" and "The Miracle Worker," died in 2005 at the age of 73.

"Delgo," which was her last film acting job, is slated for release Dec. 12. The movie also features the voice talents of Freddie Prinze Jr., Jennifer Love Hewitt, Val Kilmer, Kelly Ripa, Chris Kattan, Michael Clarke Duncan, Eric Idle, Lou Gossett Jr., Malcolm McDowell and Burt Reynolds.

"When a carefree teenager forms a forbidden friendship with a spunky princess, hostilities between their two peoples escalate, setting the stage for an exiled empress to exact her revenge and reclaim her rule," Fathom said in a news release announcing the release date of the studio's first animated feature-length film.
