Who provides the voices for the Madagascar characters?

Madagascar jungle
Animal adventure movie Madagascar proved a hit in 2005, but who gave the creatures their voices?

Madagascar is the delightful animated movie franchise about a gang of animals who must re-adapt to the wild after a life in Central Park Zoo.

The original, from 2005, found the perfect formula of big-name cast members to voice the characters, which included a zebra, several lemurs, a lion and a hippo.

It’s since gone on to get two feature-length sequels (with a fourth movie on the way), plus two TV series, one TV special, live shows, numerous video games and a movie spin-off about penguins.

The three feature films have taken over £1.6 billion at the box office. So which actors have helped make it so popular?
