Usually, I do not like documentaries that survey subjects as this one does. However, I found myself constantly trying to imitate the voice actors as I was fully engaged in the subject. The film briefly covers multiple topics, including musicality and many more. We only get brief introductions to each of the topics, but there are so many that we get to see. The film is a good length, keeping my interest through all of the topics. I've said this before, but I will reiterate that a documentary is successful if it teaches the audience something new. I definitely learned something new from this documentary with all of the different subjects involved. Musicality was the most interesting to me and I recommend you pay close attention to the film at that part.
Of course there are popular names in this film including Seth Green (Austin Powers), Hank Azaria (The Simpsons), Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series), and Mark Hamill (Star Wars). Yet, there are a lot of names that I did not know were behind certain voices on screen. These names have been hidden from us for so long. It's nice that we finally get to give them credit for their works, which are often harder than the works of live-action actors. It is important to me that as many people as possible watch this film and realize what goes on in the making of animation. The film platform continues to rise and credit must be given to those who contribute to it.
The Bottom Line: This eye-opening documentary gives us a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes effort involved in voicing our favorite animated characters.
