[UPDATED] Wondering Who Did the Voiceover Work for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer?
— Good Morning America (@GMA) December 1, 2014
On first inspection, the voice in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer sounded a great deal like Benedict Cumberbatch (who still refuses to talk about Star Wars) to me. Names like Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow were also being tossed into the ring. Over the weekend, movie critics were saying they had confirmation of Serkis but weren’t even giving vague sources so I remained skeptical. But Good Morning America has claimed it definitively as an exclusive.
Here’s their piece on the trailer bonanza and to be fair, they also don’t reveal a source but I suppose at this point it’s time to concede.
Care to speculate on who Serkis might be playing?
[UPDATE] Serkis himself has now confirmed he’s the voice of the trailer but is still keeping mum on who he’s playing. Here’s a bit of an audio interview courtesy of audioBoom.
