One of the reasons people go to the cinema is to enjoy their favorite actors on the big screens. But there are other reasons because each of us has a favorite director, writer, composer, and so on. This rule works mainly in films because when you watch a cartoon it does not play such a big role as all the characters are drawn using computer graphics. Besides, they are translated into dozens of languages with different voice actors.
However, to create the original version of the cartoon, the directors try to attract as many celebs as possible so that the audience gets pleasure and positive emotions. This is why in most cartoons you hear the voices of famous actors, athletes, singers, and other celebrities. This is all part of the marketing strategy that works great.
And while there are dozens or even hundreds of voice actors, some of them have done better and their names in the credits guarantee directors’ success. We’ve compiled a list of 20 actresses and actors who made your favorite cartoon characters more real on screen!
