The Jungle Book MovieHave you run out and bought the new limited edition of Disney's The Jungle Book Platinum DVD?

It's the fortieth anniversary of the celebrated release, but what you may not know is that it has a Canadian connection...

Watch the movie, but as soon as you're through, pop in the bonus DVD DisneyPedia : Junglemania and listen to the voice overs recorded by Canada's Brandon Hunt.

Welland, Ontario Canada based voice talent Brandon Hunt recorded voiceovers for œDisneyPedia : Junglemania, the bonus disc that comes with the platinum DVD edition of Disney™s cherished animated film, The Jungle Book. The 14-minute piece teaches children all about jungle animals using examples from the film.

You may recall that we covered this story last week in VOX Talk Episode 44.

How I found out about this story is a story in itself!

As you may know, the team at Voices.com is on Facebook and many of our friends on there are voice actors.

One of my friends happened to update his status a few minutes before I had logged in and the first headline I saw was to the effect of "My voice is on a Disney DVD"...

I just had to know more, so I jumped over to Brandon Hunt's profile and asked him for more details. Something that wasn't mentioned in the news report was how astonished Brandon's young son was by his father's wealth of knowledge concerning animals! Ah, the magic of a good script and an even better voice over ;)

I found an exclusive snippet of the "King Louie" segment on Truveo.com.

Have any of you surprised your kids with a wealth of knowledge upon listening to some of your work?

Perhaps you've picked up some neat facts from having narrated an educational, historical or technical piece.
