    From her own website, Tara Strong has mentioned she will be playing a human character named "Sari" in the new Transformers cartoon. Strong briefly describes Sari as "...not a Transformer... just a little girl!". This is the first named human character that has come to light.

    Strong has had close affiliations with lots of other cartoons.

    Some highlights include: Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends, American Dragon: Jake Long, Code Name: Kids Next Door, and possibly best known as Raven from Teen Titans.

    Her official website has some pictures and other information on her career. She's got a great range of vocal ability.

    An additional interesting note: she says it will debut "shortly after the movie" which should put it in the fall schedule. She also does not mention "Heroes", which may not mean much really. Many voice actors often refer to their series in general terms of brands.

    i thought that was Sara Gilbert?

    edit: whoops, that was Melissa Gilbert, and she was replaced by tara Strong when it became the New Batman Adventures (aka Gotham Knights)

    Yay! I'm a fan of her work. She was also Rikku in Final Fantasy X and X-2.


    Babs was played by several different actresses. Tara Strong took over when the series was redesigned and continued on through the later various WB/DC cartoons.

    It's set on a modern/futuristic Earth, so I figured that was the default assumption from the very beginning.

    I just hope it's not going to be like the current TMNT show and more like Batman the Animated series was in tone and quality.

    Wow, the girl's got some range. Ben 10, Raven, Princess Clara, Barbara Gordon. We need a strong female TF for her to voice.

    Raven, from TT? Nice. Shes easy on the eyes too (not that that matters for a voice actor, but still).

    Yowza, that's some impressive credentials, there.

    And honestly, I can handle kids as long as they don't take the focus away from the Transformers. Spike in G1? Fine. Koji in RiD? Fine. So long as it's not Armadaverse-level exposure, I can deal.

    For all we know, the little girl is the daughter of the main human character.
