FILM PRODUCTION BLOG » THE VOICE OF WALLACE
What happens when Peter Sallis can't do it anymore? God forbid anything should happen to him but he can't go on forever and the voice of Wallace is quite distinct! Would one go for a new voice or try to find someone who can duplicate Peter?
This is quite a problem. I have been worrying about it for years. I have no idea. I guess they might do auditions for someone who can impersonate the voice.
I very good at WALLACE'S voice!!!!!
I heard that the American promoters (DreamWorks) wanted to change the voice of Wallace in W & G COTWR!!!
THEY WOULD PROBLY CUT BITS OUT OF THE ONES THEVE ALL REDY MADE BECAUSE ALL HE SAYS IS CHEESE AND OTHER STUFF
BUT IF THEY COME UP WIV A NEW STORYLINE AaRMAN WILL BE STUMBLED
The Best Way Is Just To End W&G i think
Yes, I heard that too Cavor. That is pathetic! That's why Helena Bornam Carter and Ralph Finnies were put in it.
No, Jordan! NEVER!!!
it will happen w&G will end
NEEEEEEEEEEEEVEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR.:cryingon't say it! Tell me it won't!!!
nothing lasts forever
Right. Nothing lasts forever. But I bet that someone can be found to do Wallace's voice, if Peter cannot do it. Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fud lost their voice when Mel Blanc died. But someone else did the voices after that - and no one noticed.
it would be a tradgedy if someone else does the voice. w&g will be ruined!
No, it would not be ruined. We'd be sad it wasn't Peter's voice, but the show would go on.
im sure it would just ruin it for me
unless aardman do a "silent" like STS in some way or create comic books but not drawn but with models that could work,
Oh...yes, Jordan...not having Peter's voice would cut into my enjoyment of it all, too. I just meant that W&G could go on with someone else. But no one could REALLY replace Peter!
yeh i agree
Oh, please! I can't bear to think of it! Please! STOP! Wait, I need a break. Let me go!
your killing w and g allready
Mr Sallis is old, but even without knowing his other work at all I am so happy for him to have a new direction in his career in voice-overs. It is inspiring to see someone find this serendipity, esp. due to kindness to Nick Park who was just starting out 20? years ago. It's like the fable of the Lion and the Mouse, only better.
I think Peter's a fantastic man - truly inspiring - and he'll work at Wallace for as long as he can, after all, who wouldn't?! It's the perfect job!
When the time comes that he can't do it any more I'd like to see the end of the films, it just couldn't be done otherwise.
It's such a shame that the Comic has ended, because I saw that as a future for Wallace and Gromit that could last many, many years. However we may still see comic books on their own in the future. It won't be the same obviously, but ideas like that could continue the Wallace and Gromit world.
Think of Star Wars - give or take there have only ever been 6 films, but there are hundreds of comics, books, etc. that have kept it alive.
It will stay in my heart forever
same. ill neva forget that wallace and gromit brought out my true talent
Ben whitehead the new voice?
who? i don't know but they could get the guy that does the new games!
no offence but i dnt really think ben whiteheads voice is quite right. he seems to be missing thr nothern jist.
I think Alun Armstrong from "New Tricks" has a great voice and could do that distinctive Wallace accent astonishingly well. He is only 68. W&G should never die.
If You Really Like Wallace Aand Gromit Lil Changes Will Hurt But It`s Nothing '
That would be horrible! But peter's gonna keep doing it til he dies!
Lets just make the most of it
