Rowan Atkinson is not only about comedies, pantomimes, and beans. He is a remarkable voice actor and he showed us exactly what he is made of when he voiced Zazu in The Lion King.
Initially, Atkinson wasn’t so keen on taking the role, however, the 1994 Disney classic wouldn’t be complete without him, so we’re kind of glad he was persuaded into it.
Helena Bonham Carter – Tim Burton's Corpse Bride
Corpse Bride is a dark fantasy movie, released in 2005. It is set in a fictional English village way back in the Victorian age and features Emily, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter.
Helena has been adorning our screens for years. A Room With a View, The Mak, and Harry Potter are only some of the titles she starred in. In Corpse Bride she manages to shine by voicing the lead character to perfection.
Whoopi Goldberg – The Lion King
At first, the three hyenas in The Lion King were given a small and characterless role, however, as the plot evolved, the actors responsible for voicing the three turned them into unforgettable pieces.
Our beloved Whoopi Goldberg was the voice behind Shenzi the Hyena and remained its voice in the 2019 adaptation too.
Miley Cyrus – Bolt
When Miley Cyrus returned in 2008 into the arms of Disney, it was no strange place for her. She is remarkably known for being a kid star on the Hanna Montanna show which she left a trail of glitter behind her. Penny, a 13-year-old girl and Bolt's owner in the movie Bolt, is voiced by her.
In the movie Bolt, Miley Syrus steps out of her comfort zone, and instead of shining on stage and on the big screen, her rays of light manage to crack through the scene and reflect how great this woman is no matter on what side of the curtain she is.
Samuel L. Jackson – The Incredibles
You don't have to turn to real-life scenes to taste what reality is all about. In The Incredibles, Fronzone's wife will do absolutely anything, so her better half sticks to his world and keeps their dinner date. This happens in real life all the time, doesn't it?
Samuel L. Jackson contributed his remarkable voice to the character of Fronzoe, allowing him to emphasize his macho characteristics and stretch them as far as he could. Luckily Mrs. Jackson wasn't around to show him exactly who wears the pants in the house.
