1. Elle Fanning- Her voice sounds natural and it suits Mei better. Her acting is really good too. It helps that Elle was near Mei's age (though a little older) and that she was voicing along with her sister at the time.
2. Cheryl Chase- Her voice and acting are pretty good, but her voice gets shrill when she yells and it sometimes slips into her Angelica Pickles voice, which does not fit Mei's character.

Elle Fanning's Voice feels more Distinctive for the Character....

@EPA Deane I wouldn't say her voice is more distinctive, but in my opinion, she seems like a more natural fit for this part. Was Chase good for the time? Absolutely. But as much as I liked her in the FOX dub, I found that Elle put up a good fight, of course it helps that she gets the juiciest role in the show. I especially liked her first scene with Totoro and her crying scene later on; both of those were spot on.

Cheryl Chase is more childish, more girly and more natural. She bring more life to the character than Elle Fanning.

Cheryl sounds less annoying in my opinion.

 2 Shout Outs!
1. Elle Fanning: She seems the most natural and absolutely adorable especially when acting alongside her sister Dakota.
2. Cheryl Chase: Chase comes off as a little shrill and a little like her Angelica voice but pitched higher.

Both were good, but Elle seemed more like a natural choice.

As much as I liked Cheryl, I gotta say that Elle just edges her out. It's not often you get to hear a girl voiced by an actress the correct age (which was another reason I really loved ADV's dub of NADIA so much), and Elle had the meatier role to begin with. She cries quite well, too, and if there is a "squealiness" to her role, then it's not a detriment. Cheryl could sound like that, too.

Cheryl's clip sounds like Angelica Pickles if she was 2 years old

Even though I hate 20th Century Fox this movie had great dubbing.

One of the few things Fox can be proud of besides Avatar, Titanic, Ice Age films, Home Alone, Die Hard, Cast Away Braveheart and Star Wars films. Everything else they make these days = EPIC FAIL!

*Cough* most of their super heroes movies please give the licenses back to Marvel *Cough*
