Spaceship Earth Narration

right now, it Jeremy Irons. But, now that Siemens is the sponser, and they're changing the theme slightly, the narration will probably change, and a new actor will probably do the voice over....

I preferred it with Walter Cronkite (who narrated when EPCOT opened until they replaced him with Irons). The Irons track sounds... foreboding and scary, in a way. Too heavy on the "awesome" music, you know?

I liked both Cronkite & Irons...It will be most interesting to see who they get for the "new" attraction....

I've heard it's going to be someone from Start Trek, I haven't found out who yet.

I've always liked the dramatic way Jeremy Irons narrates a little better than the newsy way Walter Cronkite did (though I never experienced it at Epcot, just here on sub). Hope the new person keeps one of my favorite rides with an excellent narration.
Drop another coin in slot and I will tell you more.

Could it be Majel Barrett? Since she is the voice of all computers in the future.

My vote would be for Michael Dorn.

If its from Star Trek, maybe its going to be Dr. Spock. That would be very interesting! :mickey:

It has to be Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard), He has such a great voice.

I wouldn't mind Patrick Stewart, he does have a wonderful voice.

Either Patrick Stewart or Leonard Nimoy would be great for that ride... or any ride, really. Great voices, both.
