CoP revoice (not a rumor)

If it needed to be revoiced due to whatever reason, does anyone currently hold the proper "status" and have the right type of voice to do CoP justice and have it turn out good enough to not want to dry heave when the curtains open?

Someone said Jonathan Frakes to me the other day and I discounted it at first but now I don't know if I can come up with anybody without finding fault in them either in the speaking part or singing part or "reputation" IRL.

Who would be on your short list? Does it even need to be a known person?

Really, revoiced, why? If it has to be, I'd vote for someone unknown. That way I wouldn't be picturing that person while watching the show! However, it just won't be the same no matter who does it! Picture Kermit voiced by Robert De Niro, wouldn't make sense!

and imho, it either needs to remain untouched as look back at one of Walt's originals, or entirely removed due to it being passé, boring, slow, and unpopular. I waffle back and forth between those two pretty regularly. But re-voicing it will accomplish nothing to "improve" the attraction.

It came up as a related question over the possibility of the last scene being updated and if it was possible to have it constantly being changed while leaving the rest of the scenes alone. If the voice doesn't match, it would not work so the whole thing would need to be revoiced rather than changing it out.

I have to agree. CoP is a family favorite with us.

My almost 7 yr old has loved it since her first time at 3 1/2. It is iconic so I'd hate to see it go even though I don't necessarily share her fervor.

Wouldn't mind Tom Hanks except that I'd be thinking Woody.

1) It is more than a favorite for myself and son-in-law.
2) ANYTIME we are at Magic Kingdom, I must visit it.
3) Yes, it annoys the wife occasionally, but, marriage is compromise. *

Same here, we'd hate to see it go!
But a new or updated last scene would make sense. I wonder if there is any technical way to copy the original voice using computer software and reassembeling the sounds to create new words. I bet there is.
