Famous Cartoon Voices Read Star Wars

Submitted by on May 28, 2012 – 10:02 amNo Comment

I think this video is destined to be one of the all-time great viral videos of Geekdom. Coming out of Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, this panel reading of Star Wars: A New Hope features the voice artists Billy West, Tara Strong, Maurice LaMarche, John DiMaggio, Kevin Conroy, Jess Harnell and Rob Paulsen. These men and woman have collectively voiced some of your favorite cartoons, including Futurama, Animaniacs, The Powerpuff Girls, and The Boondocks, just to name a few. The event was recorded back in March and uploaded to YouTube weeks ago, but has only caught fire recently.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but Pinky (from “Pinky and the Brain”) as a Stormtrooper, and Prof. Farnsworth (from Futurama) were delightfully against type. Many agree that Christopher Walken as R2D2 stole the show. (“Beep… whistle… wow!”)

What do you think? What’s your favorite part?
