While news about Bumblebee: The Movie are pretty hard to come by, one important news has flown under our radar due to the fact that it did not receive much of a mainstream attention by the media.
Thanks to an article by ‘Press of Atlantic City’, announcing a musical comedy tour, we have come to learn that Canadian-American actor Martin Short is doing voice work for Transformers: Bumblebee. Of course, the rumor of Mr. Short’s involvement was circulating around earlier this year, but now we know exactly where this rumor originated from.
The article stated:
WHAT’S NEW: Short is doing voiceovers for the upcoming 2018 film “Bumblebee: The Movie.”
While Martin Short is mostly famous for his comedy work, he has done several voice works for notable titles such as The Prince Of Egypt, Treasure Planet, Madagascar 3 and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.
It is unclear whether Mr. Short will voice a character or be a part of the background narration. If you want to check out what he is capable of, an interview from The Ellen Show can be found, after the jump.
I really miss a narration right when the movie starts.
Definitely wasnt martin short for the original opening. The original opening had a voice that sounded like a young bumblebee ala will friedel in Robots in Disguise. If i had to hazard a guess as to when he wouldve been utilized it would have been in the
The original cut had an opening narration which was later removed from the movie and replaced with the opening sequence in Cybertron. I'm guessing his voice work was for that. @Optimus_Prowl do you remember how the opening voice was?
So what exactly happened with this?
I don’t recall hearing his voice at all.
It's a TF movie, which have all been utterly ridiculous so I am totally expecting Cat in the Hat or Jiminy Glick to come through 100% on whatever he's voicing.
? Compared to a lot of other actors, he really hasn't done much voice acting. 14 movies, none since 2014. Generally a few years between voice gigs.
I hope it's Jiminy Glick.
Oh, I'm great now!
You don’t owe us an apology, we were just wondering where it came from.
Hope you’re doing better now, though.
I think owe you guys an apology. That day, I was kinda stressed and a little angry and making that post was a way of letting off steam. Like I said, I'm really excited about Martin coming on for this.
If you've seen Disney's underrated Treasure Planet, you know this can only end well:
Speaking of living under a rock, did you even read any posts in this thread before you made yours?
If he's not a goofy character good guys make super evil bad guys
Isn't he from Father of the Bride?
ETA: Yes he is!
What's the source on this narrator thing?
Who………….who are you reacting too?
His character is a cowboy Transformer by the name of Ned Nederlander.
That\'s pretty cool.
Peter Cullen is no longer alone since we now have 2 Canucks.
Nope they're going for family friendly that's what I been hearing
