Nigel is a character from the 2006 animated Disney film The Wild and the Wild 2: Canada World. He is voiced by Eddie Izzard.

The Wild[]

Nigel is a very feisty and immature koala who's recognized by the New Yorks Zoo's famous plush koala toy, which he hates intensely, and is tired of being called "cute and cuddly" by his crazed fans. However, when Nigel is abducted by wildebeests upon reaching Africa, they worship him and make him their king, and their leader Kazar dubs him as the "Great Him." Nigel soon sees the error of his ways when the wildebeests attempt to eat his friends and escapes with the others. He is good friends with Larry but often angers Bridget and Samson with his mild, dry humor. He treats Ryan fairly well and has a very evident personality clash with Benny, most likely because Benny is softhearted and responsive, while Nigel is delusional and lazy, although he does mean well. He is last seen dancing on the ship with his zoo friends as it sails home, and breaks the fourth wall just before the credits roll.
