Who Sings and Voices in Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile?

Netflix has recently begun streaming Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, a charming new musical comedy film based on the beloved children's book by Bernard Waber. Since its Netflix premiere, the film has consistently ranked among the platform's ten most popular films on the Netflix Top 10 chart. Given that subscribers frequently seek out family-friendly films, this is not surprising.

The film follows the Primm family as they relocate to New York and discover a saltwater crocodile inhabiting the bathtub of their new home. After meeting the lovely reptile, they discover that he can truly sing, and he quickly befriends Josh Primm.

Obviously, except for his singing, Lyle is not a typical crocodile. Soon, he established himself as a vital member of the Primm family, enjoying caviar and baths. However, when you watch the film, you may question who actually voices the character and how many performers contribute their own musical talents to the film's soundtrack.

About Lyla the Singing Crocodile?

The protagonist of the narrative is Lyle the crocodile. You may even call him “the protagonist” because, without him, this story would not exist. Lyle is a saltwater crocodile (there are other types as well) who lives in the attic of the home where the Primm family recently moved in.

However, he is not your average reptile. He sings both in and out of the shower, enjoys long, luxury showers, and is a caviar fanatic. In other words, Lyle appears to be a genuine performer.

When Josh, the family's child, meets Lyle, they form an instant bond.  Despite his inability to speak, he communicates through song. However, Lyle's stay at that residence could be brief if Josh does not intervene.

Shawn Mendes, a musical sensation, voices the main role of Lyle. In 2015, the award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and pop artist released his debut studio album, Handwritten, which debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200.

Other big singles by him include “Treat You Better,” “There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back,” and “Senorita.” Shawn Mendes: In Wonder, as well as television programs such as The Voice and Saturday Night Live, have featured Mendes. Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is his debut role in a feature-length film.
