Voice actors play a crucial role in delivering the emotion of a game. Bad voice acting can make any script feel stiff and cheesy, but a good voice actor can make lines weigh on you long after the credits roll. Here are the confirmed voice actors who will carry the weight of Kingdom Hearts III‘s writing.
Fans will be happy to see that the voices behind many Disney characters will reprise their roles for this video game appearance. Most notably, the entire cast of Frozen is here.
The confirmed voice cast includes:
- Josh Gad (Frozen, Beauty and the Beast) as Olaf from Frozen
- Kristen Bell (Frozen, Veronica Mars, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) as Anna from Frozen
- Idina Menzel (Frozen, Enchanted, Rent) as Elsa from Frozen
- Jonathan Groff (Frozen, Mindhunter, American Sniper) as Kristoff from Frozen
- Zachary Levi (Tangled, Chuck, Thor: The Dark World) as Flynn Rider from Tangled
- Donna Murphy (Tangled, Center Stage) as Mother Gothel from Tangled
- John Ratzenberger (Toy Story, Cheers, The Incredibles, Coco) as Hamm from Toy Story
- Wallace Shawn (Toy Story, The Princess Bride, The Good Wife) as Rex from Toy Story
- Tate Donovan (Hercules, The O.C., Argo) as Hercules from Hercules
- Kevin R. McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean Series) as Gibbs from the Pirates of the Caribbean series
Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck
- Bill Farmer as Goofy
- Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense, A.I.) as Sora.
There are still some questions left in the air, as this list does not contain all of the characters in the game. Still, it’s an incredibly strong start.
Hopefully, more will be announced before the game releases January 29, 2019 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
