Unfortunately, I can’t find any reason for it.
It’s well known that three different voice actors played the role, and it’s obvious just from watching the movies (the three boys were at three different stages of puberty during the recording process). But, there is no mention anywhere that I can find as to why.
There are some things that can provide clues to possible reasons. Rickie Sorensen provided the majority of the voice work, while the other two actors, Richard and Robert Reitherman, are the sons of the film’s director. This would lead me to believe that there may have been some issue that came up with Sorensen, either that he had to leave before the recording was completed, or that scenes were added after recording had wrapped and Sorensen wasn’t available anymore. So, Reitherman threw his kids in and said “Do the best you can guys.”
Also, each time Arthur falls or trips, he says “Wha, what, whoa!” If you listen closely, you can tell that each time you hear that phrase, it’s the same recording. Early Disney movies constantly reused sound effects, but not spoken lines, and usually not in the same film. This would make it seem like there was either a problem with the recordings or they were pressed for time. Due to child labor laws, the Sorensen would only be able to work a certain amount of hours a day. If they were running out of time, perhaps Reitherman had his sons step in to record after Sorensen had to stop for the day.
Awesome! Thanks Anon!
Is it December yet? Because I feel like Christmas has come to town. The one thing that all Star Wars fans have been clamoring for might actually happen. According to Comic Book’s sources
Hello my lovely followers.
The other day I took on the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS research. And I figured since there were so many of you, I’d extend the challenge to you as well.
Whether you have/have not/plan on/don’t plan on taking up the challenge, I do encourage you to educate yourself about ALS at least consider donating to ALS research. The ALS Foundation is up over $5 million in donations because of this challenge, so the more we spread it around, the better.
Genie animator Eric Goldberg’s touching tribute to Robin Williams.
R.I.P. Robin Williams
So i found this one out recently from a friend while re-watching some of Robin Williams moments as genie in Disney’s Aladdin.
During the song “Friend like me” there’s a section where genie appears as a waiter and remarks “Let me take your order, Jot it down,” while writing down Persian text in his notepad
What was he writing, was the Persian word for turkey and of-course moments later we see what Aladdin is served. that very same order.
It’s just fascinating how much detail/research they did for the movie.
