7 Huge AF Actors You Didn’t Know Almost Voiced a Disney Prince
If Idina Menzel had actually gotten the opportunity to voice Rapunzel in Disney’s Tangled, our lives would’ve been completely different. Seeing as the Glee actress would’ve been busy doing that, chances are she’d never move on to play Elsa in Frozen… THE HORROR. But in addition to the Disney princesses who were almost voiced by different female stars, their male counterparts also got the same treatment.
In fact, some of your all-time fave Disney princes like Beauty and the Beast’s Beast and Tangled’s Flynn Ryder were just a few emails away from having different voices. And we’re not talking about small, random actors executives considered to take on the animated characters — the stars who almost played your cartoon favorites are BIG actors.
This actor is mostly known for his roles in action-packed movies, but in the late '90s, he was cast in a very different kind of role — as Li Shang in Mulan! Although he actually got the part, he turned it down to pursue other projects and B.D. Wong landed it in the end.
