Voice Actors Read Star Wars

Post by Shir'le E. Illios » Mon May 28, 2012 9:37 am

Oh. My. God.

The following video taken at the Emerald City Comicon last March is 80 minutes long, but well worth the watch. In it a number of famous voice actors (Billy West, Tara Strong, Maurice LaMarche, John DiMaggio, Kevin Conroy, Jess Harnell and Rob Paulsen) read the script for Star Wars (A New Hope), but voicing the Star Wars characters as the characters they're famous for (and changing the roles up every scene). Thus you get Batman doing the narration, Bender voicing a Stormtrooper, and you haven't heard R2D2 until you've heard him as Bill Cosby. And the exchange between Doctor Zoidberg and Aquaman? Priceless.

Just make sure to watch (or rather, listen) somewhere that people won't look at you oddly when you burst out laughing. And be sure to pause occasionally to catch your breath. ;)

Pinky and the Brain both make an appearance, yes. And no, Conroy doesn't do Darth Vader but does the narration (he's the only voice actor who doesn't switch around voices during the scenes). Thus you get Batman doing the narration. The first character to do Darth Vader is actually Bubbles (as done by Tara Strong). And Pinky as a Stormtrooper. ;)

How can anyone forget Keith David?

Even if hes been in just about every cartoon, youve gotta love Rob Paulsen. He doesnt have a lot of range, but thats very forgivable, and doesnt change the fact that hes completely awesome.

A lot of voice actors are easy to spot, really, like Tress McNellie, Jim Cummings, and Maurice LaMarche.
