I it just me, or does anyone else agree that using celebrities as animated characters is distracting and makes the character seem less original? I mean, when you're watching Prince o Egypt and you hear Patrick Stewart do you think " Hey, that's a great Pharoah" or do you think, as I did "That's the guy from Star Trek".
Not to mention the hefty fees the studios must fork over for voice talent with a pretty face that is never seen. I guess if the film goes overbudget we'll have to blame the animators, after all, the only thing they're good for is drawing the whole damn film.....
