don't you think the voice actors completely forgot their character

Recommended Posts

After all those years, now, after rewatching the original movies I noticed that the voice actors of the Toa Metru completely forgot the way that they used to dub the characters during the time between LoMN and WoS.

 

My biggest disappointment was the voice of Vakama - in LoMN it was FLAWLESS. Really, he had some sort of forign accent to his words, he sounded very hero-like yet had his doubts. In WoS, its like most of the actors completely lost their passion.

 

For example -  compare Vakam's voice: listen to those two lines one by one:

LoMN - https://youtu.be/_DKLLCJI-_8?t=1h4m15s

WoS - https://youtu.be/beDjUvU1v9U?t=1h11m34s (The audio is a bit pitched down here, but it still makes the point clear)

 

The voice acting is one of the many reasons that I elect LoMN as my personal favorite movie (in addition to plot, characters, locations, powers, pacing, concept, and design :] )

 

Do you also find the voices VASTLY different? Lets discuss it, and the movies in general :)

I noticed that, too. Vakama's accent got changed up enough and his voice was a few tones deeper, which didn't sound right to me. Onewa and Nuju were both deeper as well, and Nuju got louder, an odd trait for an Ice character. There was something off about Matau and Nokama, but I can't quite place it. Whenua was alright, but he had so few decent lines in the third movie that it's hard to make a good comparison.

Slight changes in voice between the movies could be explained by the character's mutations.

In this moment, I am very peeved that we're not allowed to make jokes about human biology on this forum.

What joke I was taking about the Toa characters when they mutated in WoS.

The voice actors could have decided to make small changes in their voices to match that.

 

EDIT:

Changed the wording of the first post so no one gets upset.

I still don't understand how that's a joke?

Slight changes happen. It wasn't a blockbuster hit where they are immersed in the character. And several of the Toa changed voice actors anyways between 2 and 3

They had their voices changed even before (and after) being exposed to the hordika venom.

Actually, that's not true. I cheked BS01, and the cast remained the same for every returning character (the toa metru and turaga vakama).

The joke is that your post could be said to refer to puberty. I didn't wanna say it because I didn't think it was allowed here.

Altering a character's voice inflections is a common way of illustrating internal character development.  I figure the Metru's voices were different to help show how they changed over the course of the two movies.
