Voice actors breathe life into the animated character.
No offence to the era of Charlie Chaplin and his mind-blowing work, but in the modern era emotion of a character, that is supposed to have a voice, is incomplete without a voice. A character that is mute, is an exception for this because they were always meant to play that role. Today’s world is surrounded by technology and it is improving every single day, innovation is off the chart and it can also be seen in the movies. The best example, we now have an entirely new sector of movies known as animated movies. Animated movies have been around for a very long time, no denying that, and nothing is taken away from the infamous Disney animated characters. My life depended on them as a child. But with time and technological improvements, the animated movie sector has literally changed into something new. The VFX, graphics, and editing work is so swift and on point, that the animated character actually feels super-realistic but also animated at the same time. They have finally struck the right balance and that’s the reason the demand for these movies has increased drastically, but it is a very costly process.
In order to make our favorite animated characters even more lively, they need an appropriate voice. Suppose there is an animated version of Sylvester Stallone voiced by Chris Tucker, that just simply wouldn’t work. So finding the right voice actor to dub their voice over the animated character is a proper challenge. By the way, you have o give to him, Benedict Cumberbatch is a legend when it comes to voice acting. Anyways, hiring good voice actors can be tough and costly but production houses have massive budgets and celebrities also realize the potential in animated movies so they hope on board and create magic behind the mic.
Today we will be showing you 15 of your favorite animated characters side by side with the celebrities who voiced them. You are going to love this one.
