Interview with Yuri Lowenthal about Ben10/Fallout 4



  • If Jacob is voicing Ben, then I'm cool with it. His voice is nice! But I'm curious if we'll get Gumball's VA in the Brazilian dub too. João Victor Granja's voice is quite similar to Jacob's.

    I believe it was revealed in a couple articles that she is voicing ben



  • @Omni-Triforcer I went back and checked numerous articles and one said that it's not confirmed that Tara Strong will voice Ben while another said that it is confirmed. That's pretty much the thing that people do need to be careful when it comes to news articles. They're not 100% reliable. There are going to be times where they state the wrong information. Articles are a great way of gathering information but it certainly doesn't beat receiving information straight out of the horses mouth.

    In a tweet she said: "so excited 2 put that watch back on".

    Tara Strong is definitely voicing Ben.

    Yeah thats what i was thinking also.



  • @admin That's what I'm hoping to very much be the case.



  • It's great she's coming back, but it would have been better to have someone else voice Ben in my opinion, I can think a lot of better voice actors that can pull off his character honestly, I kinda want a more realistic take on Ben than a cartoony one (I just feel her boy voices are too cartoony honestly)

    @Rexfan1333 too cartoon huh? Well we wouldn't want a cartoon to be to cartoony now would we. Just based off the artwork I can tell they don't care about it being to cartoony.
    Also we wouldn't want them to go the PPG route and get voice actors that are unfit to play those characters.



  • @Omni-Triforcer Even a cartoon show can end up being too cartoony and yes, that can indeed be an issue that can affect a cartoon show in a negative way.



  • @Omni-Triforcer I know it's a cartoon, but I don't want it to be to unrealistic and not like a Saturday Morning Cartoon, Voltron is one of those reboots that has done what a reboot should do, I just hope the Ben 10 reboot does the same and have some drama and character development. Also, I have nothing against Tara coming back, but kinda wished she let someone else do Ben (I like her female character voices better than her males honestly, the sound natural and awesome)

    First off its not like she went to cartoon network begging for the job they wanted her to play ben 10 again so she did if they didn't they would have gotten someone else. And why would she say no to a paying job playing a character that she loved playing. She didn't let someone else play ben cartoon network did it was their choice.



  • @Omni-Triforcer CN is doing a reboot wrong then, it's got to be different, but still retain what makes it Ben 10, even finding new actors (the PPG reboot had a decent idea, but they didn't match which made it bad), it seems like every reboot CN is mostly doing this for money and nostalgia. Voltron did great because it had things that made different, but still the same Voltron. I'm hoping Ben 10 will be better with this reboot and not flop like CNs other crappy mistakes.



  • @Rexfan1333 Well I agree that CN is doing a reboot wrong since that I previously stated that the Ben 10 reboot isn't really a reboot but in actuality is really a remake of the Original Series. I also agree that, yes, CN is actually making this reboot of Ben 10 because they want to exploit the show's nostalgia to sell more toys and get more money. However, in regards to voice actors, I don't want different voice actors for a show just because it's a reboot and therefore it has to have different voice actors. If I were in charge of an animated show, I want the most suitable, fitting, affordable, and qualified voice actors for that show. If I were in charge of the next Ben 10 show, well first off I wouldn't be making this reboot, I would go for making the sequel to the Original Series that Man of Action intended to make. Second, I would rather have the original cast, including and most especially Tara Strong, Meagan Smith, and Paul Eiding as Ben, Gwen, and Max respectively, come back to reprise their roles because I know for a fact that they are the most qualified voice actors for that very show because they had previously voiced these characters in past Ben 10 shows and did an outstanding job at it. I would make the effort to try and bring back the original cast for the next Ben 10 show because of this very reason. Jacob Hopkins, Jeremy Shada, Josh Keaton (who did voice Tim Dean and Hector, two minor characters in the Original Series and did voice Peter Parker in The Spectacular Spider-Man and yes, I know that Keaton is your pick for Ben 10,000 and not kid and teen Ben) are good choices for voicing Ben but by the end of the day, I would pick Tara Strong over everyone else. She has proved every time in the entire Ben 10 franchise that she is the best choice for providing the voice for Ben. Nobody else (not even Yuri Lowenthal) has done a better job with voicing Ben than Strong did. Hell, in one episode of Omniverse, when Ben was aged back to his younger self by Billy Billions, I actually wished that Ben stayed that way for the rest of Omniverse because I preferred Tara Strong over Yuri Lowenthal as the voice of Ben because she is the better voice actor for Ben. Just because this is a reboot doesn't mean that we should have different voice actors. When it comes to any show, it's not about finding different sets of voice actors just because there are going to be changes. It's about finding the most qualified and affordable voice actors. This is why I'm still ticked off that CN got new voice actors for the Powerpuff Girls. Just because the new VAs are young and energetic doesn't make them the most qualified. I rather prefer the original PPG voice actresses because they are the most qualified due to their past experiences voicing these characters and they can be negotiated to do their roles at a fair and affordable price. Again, it's not about changes and being different. It's much more about quality. I better stop this comment here now because it's already a little too long than it's supposed to be but that's the point that I want to make across.



  • @Rexfan1333 One more thing that I forgot to mention. If Tara Strong wasn't able to voice Ben and I can't convince her to reprise that very role, then I would go ahead and find someone else that's qualified to voice Ben.



  • @Tactical-Ochoa I understand your opinion, but I perfer anyone to voice Ben than Tara, that's just how I feel and felt Yuri did a better job than her honsetly, he made him mature and was more of a hero compared to Tara. I just think anyone can do Ben better than her, but I understand you opinion.



  • @Tactical-Ochoa I'm still not full sure if she'll voice Ben yet, but who knows. I don't mind if she comes back, I just want to see something fresh with this reboot. Also I'm using my phone to type so my writing is a little off right now.

    You realize hes 10 years old. No one sounds mature at 10 years old. Its not the voice that made him seem like a hero its what the writers of the show made the voice actors say. And dude she confirmed it herself that she is ben so honestly this should not even be a discussion anymore



  • @Rexfan1333 That's another thing that I forgot to mention. I don't mind about who you think should voice Ben because that's your opinion. I was focused more on your claim that the Ben 10 reboot should have a different voice cast just because it's a reboot.



  • @Omni-Triforcer Sorry if I'm sounding like a jerk (Hope I'm not offending anyone, but this is just how I feel right now), but I'm just saying my opinion on the idea of using the same voice actress (even though Paul Eding isn't even apart of it) for a reboot that feels like a rehash of the same show that already exist, I rather it be totally different than the same thing that we already seen. (I rather we had a 15 year old Ben who finds the Omnitrix instead or a Ben 10,000 series or Ken 10, but it's just a rehash, which I hope to god it isn't)

    Look, I'm really hoping it will be great, but I feel it's just another rehash only with a cartoony art style. It just makes me wish MOA would just take this show to Netflix so we can get a real reboot of Ben 10 instead of a rehash for toys.



  • @Tactical-Ochoa That's cool. everyone has opinions.
