Even though Disney has had almost three decades of its original animated The Lion King Became one of the biggest animated critical successes of all time, there are some fans who are now only making a bizarre discovery about one of the voice actors in the classic film. Despite the fact that many well-known faces are included in the cast, some are only realizing that Zazu’s voice is none other than Mister Bean Actor Rowan Atkinson.
I have always been a lover of playing “Guess the Voice” while watching an animated feature, so this news comes as no surprise to me, but it seems unlike James Earl Jones, whose distinctive tone made Mufasa such an iconic voice Granted, which he could not be replaced in the live-action remake of 2019, 66-year-old Atkinson’s involvement has been something that has not gone unnoticed, only considering the fact is fair As that Mister Bean, He doesn’t really talk much. However, anyone who knows Atkinson’s other works, such as Black joiner, Were Johnny english In the likes of movies or his turn Really love And Four weddings and a funeral, There really is no excuse.
Whether it is just an American thing, or one of life’s truly unusual anomalies, it seems that a TicTok video posted by film fan Ryan__M, in which he declares his disbelief at the discovery, has led one of fellow fans The whole wave started. Add your surprise to the comments posted on the video. Short clip features Rowan Atkinson It has been viewed more than 2 million times while reading Zazu’s part during the song “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King”, and on the popular social media app.
Amid the comments, user Raiganlegge00 said “How did I not know this ??”, while Stephmcintoshx said “Omg 30 and just got revealed.” And Romeo I am Waiting said: “I felt that his voice was familiar – it all makes sense now.”
For those who don’t know about the stellar cast involved in the original animated classic, let me run through some other voices, which may be a familiar ring to them. Whoopi Goldberg and The Voice of Winnie the Pooh, Jim Cummings lent his voice to Shenzi and Ed the Hyenas, respectively, while comedy actor Nathan Lane played the Meerkat, Timon. In addition, there are some who have missed the fact that Matthew Broderick played the role of Simba. Yes this is true. I’m sure there are people out there who have managed to leave for decades without being aware of other big name stars who have voiced some of the most favorite animated Disney characters of the past.
Like most artists in the original version of The Lion King, Rowan Atkinson did not reprise his role in the live-action remake, handing the role of Zazu to John Oliver, who managed to keep alive some of Atkinson’s nuances while providing his own voice over voice. Are you one of those people who are surprised by some people behind the voices or is it something that you took as common sense?
