disney voice actor

Can we talk about the gold mine that is Ryan Potter’s twitter?

Am I the only one imagining Hiro Hamada telling those?

When you meet Ryan Potter, the voice of Hiro Hamada, dressed as Tadashi Hamada and Honey Lemon!!😍🙊💕
Talk about good timing! I can’t believe he was at Magic Kingdom that day, and I can’t believe HE wanted to meet US!!😭😭 Talk about a magical moment!!✨

Trust me, trust me, I like Elita One’s voice in G1, but… Cree Summers exists.

She has voiced SO MANY WONDERFUL character! These are just my two favorite, Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire and of course, the tragic Elita-1 from Transformers Animated (please pardon my 30 second MS Paint job).

I just love her voice, so whenever I write about her or read about her, I always think of her voice as Cree Summers. 

I’m curious what others may think of? The G1, or someone else’s voice? 

And that being said, if you’d like to add your headcanon voice for another character, please add!

It’s really strange being dragged back into a fandom even though you don’t even have the game. Well, Blizzard’s got me back again, so oh well.

Kind of a sequel to this. First of all, I was in a Disney (more precise Frozen) phase before this, so no surprise there that that’s my first Overwatch fan art after so long. And secondly, I’ve always wanted to draw their actual outfits (well, how I imagined they’d look). I gave Junkrat gloves and a bandage cos he hides his prosthethic arm. Mei’s hair pin is now some kind of hair tie thingy and the corst is a bit more Chinese inspired I guess(?). I also tried to match the clothes’s colours with their actual colour scheme in game. Emphasis on TRIED.

Oh well, whatever. However, I also discovered that I really like this way of colouring. It takes soooo long but I kinda like it anyways.

Same Voice, Different Disney Characters

When Walt Disney was alive, many of his animated films (and some released after his death) featured different characters with the same voice actors. Some of these included Eleanor Audley (who voiced Lady Tremaine and Maleficent), Sterling Halloway (whose character voices included Adult Flower, Cheshire Cat, Kaa, and Winnie the Pooh), and Verna Felton (who voiced the Fairy Godmother, the Queen of Hearts, and Flora).

Among my most favorites is Kathryn Beaumont, who was one of the few child voice actors to voice characters who were also children. She is best remembered for voicing two female protagonists: the titular Alice of Alice in Wonderland and Wendy Darling in Peter Pan. Not only did she perform their voices, but she played both characters as a live action reference model for the animators in the two films. Because they share the same voice actress and model, Alice and Wendy also have extremely similar facial features, including blue eyes. Besides that, these two heroines share some other things in common:

  • Both live in England
  • Both wear blue clothing (although Alice wears an actual dress, while Wendy wears a nightgown)
  • Both are preteens (Alice is ten, Wendy is twelve)
  • Both are very imaginative and adventurous
  • Both have a pet (Alice has her cat, Dinah, Wendy has her dog, Nana)
  • Both interact with characters voiced by Heather Angel and Bill Thompson (Angel voices Alice’s sister and Wendy’s mother, Thompson voices the White Rabbit and Mr. Smee)
  • Both of them also wake up from what seems like a dream of their respective fantasy worlds, both of which also end in “land” (although it is made very clear that Alice’s adventures were just a dream, while it doesn’t appear so much that way for Wendy)

Another connection made between the two films is one of the songs. The opening song in Peter Pan, “The Second Star to the Right,” actually contains the recycled melody of a deleted song from Alice in Wonderland, known as “Beyond the Laughing Sky.”

Jim Cummings does Darkwing Duck’s “Let’s Get Dangerous” in the voice of every Disney character he’s played

“I’m very grateful that the Estonian dub of Big Hero 6 used a female VA for Hiro. As a transguy who headcanoned him as trans from the time I saw the English trailers, I felt like I was finally being represented. Even though I know I’m not, it just means so much to me. I know I’ll never get a genuine trans character from Disney but at least I can pretend.”

Pinocchio

12 in x of animated feature film history
Release: Feb. 7th, 1940
Country: USA
Director: Ben Sharpsteen, Hamilton Luske, etc.

Pinocchio was intended to be Disney’s third film, after Bambi. However due to difficulties with Bambi, it was put on hold and Pinocchio was moved ahead in production.

The plot of the film involves an old wood-carver named Geppetto who carves a puppet named Pinocchio. The puppet is brought to life by a blue fairy, who informs him that he can become a real boy if he proves himself to be ‘brave, truthful, and unselfish’. Pinocchio’s efforts to become a real boy involve encounters with a host of unsavory characters.

Early scenes animated by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston show that Pinocchio’s design was exactly like that of a real wooden puppet. Animator Milt Kahl felt that Thomas, Johnston and Moore were 'rather obsessed with the idea of this boy being a wooden puppet’ and felt that they should 'forget that he was a puppet and get a cute little boy; you can always draw the wooden joints and make him a wooden puppet afterwards.' Despite the iconic nature of the scene in which Pinocchio’s nose grows, it only happens once in the film.

Disney urged the writers to evolve Pinocchio into a more innocent, naïve personality that reflected this design. However, Disney found that the new Pinocchio was too helpless. Therefore, in the summer of 1938 Disney and his story team established the character of the cricket. Originally the cricket was only a minor character that Pinocchio killed by squashing him with a mallet and that later returned as a ghost.

Pinocchio marked the first time an animated film used celebrities as voice actors. Disney cast popular singer Cliff Edwards, also known as 'Ukelele Ike,’ as Jiminy Cricket. Another voice actor recruited was Mel Blanc, most famous for voicing many of the characters in the Looney Tunes cartoons from Warner Bros. Blanc was hired to perform the voice of Gideon the Cat. However, it was decided that Gideon would be mute, so all of Blanc’s recorded dialogue was deleted except for a solitary hiccup.

Pinocchio went into release accompanied by generally positive reviews. Although it became the first animated feature to win a competitive Academy Award – winning two for Best Music, Original Score and for Best Music, Original Song for 'When You Wish Upon A Star’ – it was initially a box office disaster. It eventually made a profit in its 1945 reissue.

Pinocchio was a groundbreaking achievement in the area of effects animation, giving realistic movement to vehicles, machinery and natural elements such as rain, lightning, snow, smoke, shadows and water. Many film historians consider this to be the film that most closely approaches technical perfection of all the Disney animated features.”
