VO Behind-The-Scenes: Zookeeper

Posted 11:00 am by team

It seems as if Hollywood will never tire of “talking animal” movies, and that’s fine with me because it always provides a wealth of great voice overs to explore. Comedian Kevin James’s new movie, Zookeeper, features an all-star cast bringing a zoo-full of animals to life, and we have a look behind-the-scenes at the recording sessions.

The first video gives a great look at the terrific cast playing all manner of animals. We get to see Adam Sandler, Sylvester Stallone, Cher, John Favreau, Maya Rudolph, and others recording their parts as lions, monkeys, and bears (oh my!)

The second video expands on the dialogue between Sylvester Stallone and Cher as we get to see the pair act out an entire scene. I think it’s great to see the physicality that Stallone puts into the role. He really approaches the VO with gusto and uses his entire body and face — as well as his voice, of course — to bring out the best of the character.

The final video is the film’s trailer, so you can see all of the great talent’s voices at work in the finished product, and hear a pretty classic movie trailer voice over, to boot!
