I Almost Starred in a Disney Flick…Again!


While on a recent press junket for the new animated Disney movie, Planes: Fire & Rescue, I had a very unique experience.  How many folks can say that they’ve ever had the opportunity to have the great folks at Disney use my voice and record a clip of the movie?  See?  That’s what I mean.  Who gets to do that?  And to make it even more special–who gets to do it TWICE?!?!?!  That’s right, I did it a few years back at Disney Animation Studios for Winnie the Pooh and this time I did it at Disney Toon Studios !

By now, I should be an old pro, or so I would have you think.  The truth is–I was wayyyy scared!  My knees were literally knocking!  After all, I was taking direction from Jason Henkel, the casting director for the film and Paul McGrath, a sound engineer.  The voice over thing may LOOK like it’s easy, but it really isn’t.  I kept flubbing my lines and my blogger friends were giggling!  I think I did about 4 takes before I got it right, and that was just for a few lines.  I can’t even imagine doing the whole film!


In the scene, they actually substituted my voice for the voice of the amazing Julie Bowen.  She plays Dipper, a flirtatious chick who is meeting the hero, Dusty, for the first time.  So, here it is:


And, so that you can see how much I’ve honed my voice over skills, here’s me as Piglet, from 2011.  I hold voice over talent in high regard.  I was only in the booth for a few minutes and I was seriously sweating bullets!

Don’t forget to see Planes: Fire & Rescue when it opens on July 18th!

Disclosure:  I was a guest of Disney Film Studios for this trip to Los Angeles.  They provided my travel, lodging, meals, and activities.  All opinions, however, are my own!
