I had the most amazing day, and meeting these two voice actors was certainly one of many highlights. I had hoped to edit this video, but I wanted to get it up right away because there’s just so much good stuff in it. Don’t miss the story of the stuffed Pooh from the new movie told by Jim Cummings as well as stories both men share about their kids–it’s too sweet. Both slip in and out of the voices that have helped to make them famous and as you can tell by the audiences’ reaction, they were phenomenal.
Jim Cummings is the voice of Tigger and Pooh but he’s done so many other voices. And of course Tom Kenny is most famously known as the voice of Spongebob Squarepants.
Winnie the Pooh will be in theaters July 15, 2011. The movie is phenomenal and I’ll be sharing more of the behind-the-scenes talent that put together this fabulous summer blockbuster in the coming week.
