I don’t know if it is common in the USA to dub an animated movie using stars who aren’t actors at the same time.

In Germany it is.

Today I watched a trailer for cars while I was waiting for my train and at the end it read “including the voices of Michael Schumacher and Kimmi ‘Sorry for Misspelling’ Raikönnen”.

Sooo, we have an animated feature made by Pixar. Ok.
We have voice actors. No problem. Someone nevertheless HAS to talk in it.
But these voice actors are in fact no actors. That’s bad.

I understand that today you have to make some interesting announcements to draw people but why on earth would someone risk the quality of the movie? Especially when those guys you use are no pros, who in fact never did something like

On Monday I watched the movie Thank you for smoking and I have to admit that I am really impressed. Not onyl about the movie but also about the mainstream media.

Therefore: Thank you media for not spoiling me the best parts of the movie. Thank you for only using material from the first ten or twelve minutes of the movie. It doesn’t matter if you had to do it that way or not. It doesn’t matter if you only had those first minutes. You didn’t ruin everything.

Thank you for not doing a job the director itself is better in anyway (someone remember the trailer of Deep Impact?).

Thank you media.
