Long before Marvel's next superhero flick Doctor Strange even went into production, the studio was receiving some flack for casting Tilda Swinton in the role of the Ancient One.

Our hearts just grew three sizes!

On Wednesday during Illumination Entertainment's CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, the studio showed off some footage from their upcoming movies and made a pretty big announcement — Benedict Cumberbatch will be the new Grinch!

That's right, the studio is making an animated version of the classic Dr. Seuss children's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Sherlock actor will be voicing the iconic green meanie!

Video: Benedict Is Pure Magic In First Doctor Strange Teaser Trailer!

The film, which will simply be titled The Grinch, will be produced by the same studio that made Despicable Me and Minions and is set to be released November 10, 2017.

Of course the last person to play the curmudgeonly character was Jim Carrey in the 2000 Ron Howard-directed live action version. Not only was the film a success, scoring $345 million worldwide, but it also won an Oscar for Best Makeup.

What do you think about Benedict voicing the Grinch?!
