Peter Cullen Returns to Work On Transformers 2 - Transformers News
I hope this was never a problem. Cullen made that movie great with out him it would have been really bad.
Now if only we can get Welker for any character. Then the circle would be complete
And to think that some people didnt want Cullen because he was too cartoony lol.
Yes Mr. Cullen and the other voice actors like Jess Harnell (Ironhide/Barricade) and Robert Foxworth (Ratchet) to note ones who had a decent set of lines and who added to their characters appeal. Mr. Cullen's work certainly fixed in a new generation the regal heroism of Optimus Prime through his voice work. Here's hoping Mr. Cullen enjoys working on this movie as much as he seemed to enjoy the first.
I have a lot of resprect for voice actors like Mr. Cullen, Charlie Addler, Frank Welker and several others because of their relatively unrecognised work and how much what they do gives us the characters we know and love.
Yeah, You GO Man!
With out Peter all is LOST! I am glad he is back!
Yay for progress!
"Mr. Cullen states that he has recorded the opening for the movie".
Okay that's some of the coolest news yet because Cullen really brought something to the opening of the first film. For all the things I could complain about with the first movie Cullen's opening was just a mega cool geek moment so it's good to hear that he's going to open the second film in the same way.
Ooooh yeah! I can remember being in the cinema for the first time and hearing his voice right off the bad got my attention and made me sit up and pay attention. I hear a lot of people in the audience get excited and clap in the beginning. There was a huge uproar of cheers and clapping when the movie finished.... i haven't had/seen an immediate reaction like that in a LONG time.
Well, sounds good so far. I'm interested in who they're going to get for the new characters though. I mean, I hope we don't have another issue with Megatron where the voice is so over-edited with sound equipment that it really didn't matter who voiced him...
Uhhhh.... Was it ever an issue? I thought he was already contracted? Good to hear though.
He made a statement rpreviously that he already recorded the lines for the opening, there's actually nothing new coming from this article.
Man from the first leaked youtube video of the opening of the film when you heard "In the beginning" I just knew it was on.
I agree, that scene gave me goosebumps. (that's how the word is spelled, right?). Kinda make my day the first time i hear it.
Its always good to hear from Cullen.
I love his voice, now if they could just get the original megatron voice in, I'd be in heaven.
I'm far from a G1 fanboy, but having Cullen in there was a major part of my love for the first movie. Sitting in the theater for the premiere at Botcon (w/ Vangelus, aksmth, and Jarodimus as I recall), my heart hit my throat when we heard that booming "BEFORE TIME BEGAN..." Great stuff.
That was Welker, not Cullen.
Sweet as always!
Good! now we need a cullen cameo =D
Yeah, Cullen was the only thing fans could agree on when Murphy was asking for our input for the first movie... and believe it or not that wasn't even 100% 'Yes, we want him'... for every person whom said 'Yeah, bring on Peter Cullen!' there was someone else who said 'Eh, I guess that'll work...'.
Now, Welker... that was a big split...
