  • Is it a cost thing, like Telltale couldn't afford his fee? I'd chip in to a Bring Back the True LeChuck Voice fund.

    Please, Telltale, reconsider!!!!!!!!

    Nah, I'd assume, similar to with Peter Sallis in W&G, that it's an issue of quantity of lines and the logistics of scheduling multiple studio trips that an old, semi-retired actor wouldn't be in the mood for.
  • It's too bad. But I'm sure they'll find a suitable replacement.
  • thanks for answering my question guys i can't afford to preorder right at the moment
  • Apparently Earl Boen has retired from acting and now lives in Hawaii and only works on a limited time basis.
  • "as well as Alexandra Boyd returning from Curse of Monkey Island as Elaine, (although her dialog had not been implemented yet when I saw the game and a temporary VA was used)"
    This comes from Mixnmojo's preview of Tales of Monkey Island at E3 with Dave and Emily. I wouldn't 100% bet on it, but it's possible that the VA for LeChuck in the trailer was temporary, and that Earl Boen will reprise his role.

    I wonder if Telltale aren't answering this question because they aren't sure yet.
    They have answered, the answer was NO.

    I sure hope he does. Then again, I would be satisfied with the voice we heard in the trailer, it doesn't sound to far off.
  • Can someone ask Telltale in the private forum if he was even approached for the role? I don't think retirement has anything to do with it when Earl Boen has agreed to do the SoMI remake... and it wouldn't be quantity of lines either, because I'd bet Lechuck has a much greater amount of lines in SoMI than these short episodes at Telltale
  • The episodic nature of the series would be the problem, I'd imagine. If you were retired and living in Hawaii, would you be more likely to take a job where you fly back to the mainland for one stretch of recording, or six?
