You’ll be pleased to learn Square Enix managed to enlist an authentic lineup of actors for Kingdom Hearts 3. They revealed a big list of voices to the press today, with the actual people behind Princesses Anna and Elsa, Hercules, Flynn Rider, Hamm, Rex and more. And these are just the ones that have been revealed — we suspect there are more….
- Josh Gad (Frozen, Beauty and the Beast) as Olaf from Frozen
- Kristen Bell (Frozen, Veronica Mars, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) as Anna from Frozen
- Idina Menzel (Frozen, Enchanted, Rent) as Elsa from Frozen
- Jonathan Groff (Frozen, Mindhunter, American Sniper) as Kristoff from Frozen
- Zachary Levi (Tangled, Chuck, Thor: The Dark World) as Flynn Rider from Tangled
- Donna Murphy (Tangled, Center Stage) as Mother Gothel from Tangled
- John Ratzenberger (Toy Story, Cheers, The Incredibles, Coco) as Hamm from Toy Story
- Wallace Shawn (Toy Story, The Princess Bride, The Good Wife) as Rex from Toy Story
- Tate Donovan (Hercules, The O.C., Argo) as Hercules from Hercules
- Kevin R. McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean Series) as Gibbs from the Pirates of the Caribbean series
- Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck
- Bill Farmer as Goofy
Square’s press release also mentions Haley Joel Osment will return as Sora, reprising the role he originally played in 2002 as a child actor. Other actors we suspect will be in Kingdom Hearts 3: Mandy Moore (she already does the voice on Disney Channel’s Tangled show, and everyone else from the movie is confirmed) and the entire cast of Big Hero 6 (same deal).
Question marks: the roles of Buzz, Woody, Mike and Sully. It would be a major development if ANY video game managed to land Tom Hanks or Billy Crystal. Kingdom Hearts 3 will be out January 29, 2019.
