disney: pocahontas

“While we were recording, the animators filmed me to use as a reference for expression and body movement. They also captured certain facial expressions and the way my hands moved.

“My 2-year-old already recognizes ‘Mommy’ on the screen. My brother came all the way from Alaska to the Central Park premiere, and throughout the screening, he constantly nudged me because he recognized traits of mine.”

– Irene Bedard, the speaking voice of Disney’s Pocahontas
