If you had the chance to provide the Voice for a character in a new Animated version of LOTR, who would it be for? Can't Post

I have just finished watching Bashki's animated LOTR. This was my first time watching this version, and I couldn't help but have a few chuckles (sorry...Legolas meets them after Weathertop?). I had a hard time not comparing each scene to the film version, so I am sure this was the reason for the chuckles here and there. Had I watched it before the big Trilogy, I may have enjoyed it more without critiquing every scene.

Since the arrival of computer animated movies, one never knows when a new animation of Tolkien's classics may be next in theaters. So, if you had the chance to lend your Voice in a new Animated 3D (and 2D of course), Lord of the Rings, which character would you want to voice?

**Note**Please choose multiple characters if you like as Voice Actors are known for voicing multiple characters in a movie, and there are several characters not listed. Thanks!

Oh, and as for me, I would choose Eowyn, Arwen, and some Orc voices. I don't know why Orc, but sometimes I make funny voices when I play Action Figures with my boys and a few of the voices sound a bit Orcish. Hey, a mom's got to do, what a mom's got to do to keep them entertained! Tongue

And something I noticed that was so similar with Bashki's LOTR... [In reply to] Can't Post

was how Frodo's voice (Christopher Guard) sounded a lot like Elijah Wood's Frodo in a lot of scenes! Mmmm...I bet there has been a lot of discussions about this movie in the past on TORn. **searches old posts**

I'd be Arwen... [In reply to] Can't Post

that's the closest I could ever come to being with Aragorn. On the other hand, this makes me think of the person who voiced Arwen in the radio show the BBC did a few years ago. She was the only person whose voice didn't fit the character. She sounded far too old. That may be appropriate for me now.

I like the way your thinking! [In reply to] Can't Post

Ahhh...Aragorn...he is definitely a good reason to be Arwen in voice or person!

Now Patty, your still a young chicken. Wasn't Arwen like about 2700 years old when she met Aragorn?Wink

Believe me, if she was... [In reply to] Can't Post

the woman on that BBC audio was perfect for the part in that regard. But she was still supposed to sound as young as spring-time. *sigh* Spring isn't even visible in my rear-view mirror any more.

A very kind TORnsib... [In reply to] Can't Post

replied this to me recently,

No matter how many ''segments of time' you are, you are that many young. We can dwell in the essence of youth all of our lives and it is the 'home fires' of the spirit that account for life/living. Look into the mirror and see the sparkle of your eyes. Nothing else matters.


It is a beautiful way to think of living I thought.

I have never heard the BBC radio show before, but isn't Ian Holm part of that? I would love to hear it. Do you know if it is available for a listen?

I know it's available to purchase on Amazon... [In reply to] Can't Post

but as for on-line snippits, I'm not really sure. Yes, that's Ian Holms' Frodo.

It really is a delightful listen. There are some on here who prefer it to the movies for dramatization.

I will try hard to view age (and youth) like that. I've just been feeling a little "memento mori" here lately, I guess. Arthur arthritis has been coming to call.

There was a discussion [In reply to] Can't Post

on the LOTR movie board about how some of PJ's shots were exact replicas of some of Bakshi's shots. I don't remember what the discussion was called, though, maybe "When Peter met Ralphie", or something like that.

Yeah, I missed him in the movie, too. [In reply to] Can't Post

I was really looking forward to seeing him as well as the Red Arrow; Faramir, Steward of Gondor; the hands of the King..., etc. Unsure

I picked Eowyn. [In reply to] Can't Post

She's got the biggest female role, plus there's that whole romance thing with my boyfriend, Faramir. *girly sigh*

Gimli and Witchking [In reply to] Can't Post

Rough, earthy, scottish, Dwarveness on the one hand, and shadowy, menacing, mysterious wraith on the other. I could do those well. Sly

Oh, and I'd also like to be a nameless "extra" in any scene where there are Wargs. I'm surprised no one's nabbed Frodo or Gandalf yet...

Legolas [In reply to] Can't Post

My voice is a high baritone, low tenor - and everyone tells me I sound younger than I am. Also I've done phone work and I've been told by females that my voice is very pleasant to listen to. Going with that sort of timelessness, charisma and youthful maturity I'd have to go with Legolas. My voice isn't pitched low or mature enough for an Aragorn or Gandalf. I could probably be one of the Hobbits, though I always tend to hear their voices pitched slightly higher than mine.

I'm very good at making up voices so I could probably also do a monster or two without anyone catching on it was me.

I got a chance to listen! [In reply to] Can't Post

How neat to hear Ian Holm as Bilbo! Can't wait to finish the other half later on this evening.

Arthur Arthritis can certainly make one feel like age is creeping up on them. My husband has psoriatic arthritis that started causing his joints, especially his knees to swell and ache when he was a teenager. He always reminds me to keep going and says when you stop going is when arthritis can win the battle. It can be a rough fight though as old Arthur doesn't tend to give up very easily and has painful reminders that he isn't going anywhere. Unsure

Forgotten hero indeed! [In reply to] Can't Post

I can see how he could have been squeezed in to the film and made a very nice addition along with the Woses! A must character for the new animated movie!

Yes... [In reply to] Can't Post

I would have liked to see her at the House of Healing with Aragorn by his side as he is healing Eowyn. But a quick word of advice to Gandalf would have also been nice as an extra scene. Ioreth will be a great addition for the new film! Wink

I really noticed a lot of similarities as well! No Tom Bombadil and the beginning was very similar. I love it, "When Peter met Ralphie", I have to find that!Laugh

Yes, we need a Frodo and Gandalf! [In reply to] Can't Post

One cannot have a new animated movie without Frodo or Gandalf! There just would be no LOTR!

Very nice choices!--Gimli and Witchking! Oh and yes, extras would certainly be needed! You must have an idea for the "extra" in a Warg scene. Are you meaning an Orchish extra or any bystander unfortunate enough to be close to Wargs?!?!?Shocked

That is the wonderful thing about doing Voice Acting... [In reply to] Can't Post

You can be just so many characters and no one ever knows!

Wonderful, we have our Legolas, and a Hobbit it is. Do you have a preference for a Hobbit character? Oh, and monsters! Yes, some nice Troll grunts or even Warg growls. I see a movie developing!
