Kingdom Hearts III's Voice Cast Includes Movie Voice Actors From Frozen And Tangled
Square Enix has revealed a list of the actors for Kingdom Hearts III this morning, showing off the various actors and actresses reprising their roles from their Disney films in the game.
From the 2013 film Frozen, Kristen Bell (Anna), Idina Menzel (Elsa), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff), and Josh Gad (Olaf) all reprise their roles in the film. This isn't Bell's first foray into video games, as The Good Place star played Lucy Stillman in several of the early Assassin's Creed games a decade ago.
From Tangled, Zachary Levi reprises his role as Flynn Rider from the movie, while Donna Murphy appears as Mother Gothel. While Square Enix and Disney have not indicated whether Mandy Moore will voicing Rapunzel, it would be odd for her not to return as she appeared in a previous game as Final Fantasy VII's Aerith.
Toy Story's world in Kingdom Hearts III has veterans John Ratzenberger as Hamm and Wallace Shawn as Rex. Tate Donovan reprises his role as Hercules from the 1997 animated film of the same name, while Kevin R. McNally returns as the ever-loyal Gibbs from the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
Sora's persistent fellows-in-arms Donald Duck and Goofy are being played by their longtime voice actors Tony Anselmo and Bill Farmer respectively. Anselmo has recently voiced Donald Duck in the Disney animated series Duck Tales, while Farmer is a mainstay of different voices in tons of shows, movies, and video games. Fun note: Farmer is the voice of Sam from Sam & Max in the original Lucasarts point-and-click adventure.
Kingdom Hearts III will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 29.
