Two of the immensely talented voice actors of Clone Wars treated us to a show of their vocal abilities. Hear how Obi-Wan Kenobi got his voice, and listen to the sweet sounds of Star Wars's clones and monsters.
We met with James Arnold Taylor, who voices Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Dee Bradley Baker, who voices all of the Clonetroopers as well as many of the show's more monstrous beings, at the Clone Wars press event last week.
Taylor has had an especially extensive and varied voice acting career. In addition to being the voice of Fox's "Animation Domination" promos and the current Fred Flintstone, Taylor is also an accomplished "voice double." He frequently stands in for celebrities when they aren't available for voice post-production, doing seamless imitations of actors like Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp, and Michael J. Fox. Fortunately, his work voice matching Ewan MacGregor came in handy in his current role, as you can see in the video above.
Baker showed off the full range of his manic vocal talents, from serious and stolid clone to desperate child to fearsome alien creature:
The second season of Clone Wars premieres tomorrow night on Cartoon Network.
