A bunch of well-known voice actors read Star Wars: A New Hope radio play!

This is absolutely amazing. Voice actors Kevin Conroy (Batman in Batman: The Animated Series), Maurice LaMarche (Pinky from Pinky and the Brain), Billy West (Fry, Zoidberg, and Professor Farnsworth in Futurama; Stimpy from Ren and Stimpy), Tara Strong (Bubbles from The Power Puff Girls; Timmy Turner from Fairly Odd Parents; Harley Quinn from Batman), John DiMaggio (Bender from Futurama; Jake from Adventure Time; Marcus Fenix from Gears of War), Jess Harnell (Wako from Animaniacs) and Rob Paulsen (Yako from Animaniacs; Pinky from Pinky and the Brain) got together at the Emerald City Comicon to put on one of the best damn things I’ve ever seen.

They read through the first half or so of the Star Wars: A new Hope radio play script. They play different character and switch between various voices, including their iconic characters, as well as well-known celebrities and other famous voices. It’s absolutely worth the watch, even if you only have a passing interested in animation/cartoons like myself. It’s fun, entertaining, and even fascinating to watch this actors work their magic.

Plus, I can cross off hearing John DiMaggio impersonating Tracy Morgan saying “That’s not moon, that’s a space station!” off my bucket list.

What were you favorite moments from the clip? Are there any voices you’d like to have heard? Let us know in the comments! Or email us at askpowercords@gmail.com
