Disney Voice Actors on D23’s Armchair Archivist

DAPs Magic Disney News – by Mr. DAPs

Some of the most well known Disney voices were not only heard, but seen, on the most recent Armchair Archivist. In this episode, D23 invited Bill Rogers (voice of Disneyland), Bill Farmer (voice of Goofy and Pluto), Bret Iwan (voice of Mickey Mouse) and Pete Renoudet (Voice of Henry the Bear and others). In this episode, these men share stories, and talk about what it is like to be a part of the Disney family. This is an incredible ten minute video with a lot for Disney geeks to geek out about.

Bill Rogers is most commonly known as the “voice of Disneyland.” His voice can also be heard at Tokyo Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort. He has also announced several movie premiers with Buena Vista Special Events Live. National Geographic Channel’s “Shadow Wolves” is narrated by him and he has announced for the Hour of Power and Delta Airlines.

Bill Farmer is most recognizable as the voice of Goofy. He has been his voice since 1987. He also voices another Disney dog, Pluto. In Epic Mickey, he also voiced Horace Horsecollar. These are just a few of the many voices that Bill Farmer has voiced throughout his career.  He has voiced for both Disney and Pixar movies and shows including A Goofy Movie, Goof Troop, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Beauty and the Beast, Ed Wood, Monsters, Inc., Toy Story, and Toy Story 2 to name a few.

Bret Iwan is the voice of the world’s favorite mouse, Mickey Mouse. He went to school at Ringling College of Art and Design before taking a job at Hallmark Cards. After working there nearly five years he received an email from a friend about an audition for the voice of Mickey Mouse. He auditioned first via the phone and the rest is history. He is now the fourth voice actor to become the voice of Mickey Mouse and has voiced Mickey in Kingdom Hearts games, Epic Mickey, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and also in the Disney Theme Parks.

Pete Renoudet has a voice that is most recognizable as Henry the Bear from the Country Bear Vacation Hoedown. He also was in the Hall of Presidents as President Abraham Lincoln in Walt Disney World. His voice can also be heard aboard the Mark Twain at Disneyland. He has voiced dozens of characters throughout the years and also played some bit roles in some Disney classics. His voice can be heard in The AristoCats, The Black Cauldron, Mulan, and more.
