He said: “Anna Faris called me.”

He added: “I hadn’t talked to her in awhile, and I was like: ‘Hey, what’s up?’”

Long added: “She said: ‘You’re doing the Squeakquel!’ And then something happened and we couldn’t talk any more. So, I’m pretty sure she’s doing it.”

He also discussed who else will be playing a Chipette in the film, he said: “I heard Christina Applegate.”

He added: “And then there’s a third, and I’m not quite sure who that is.”
