Voice Compare » Swan Princess » Prince Derek
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Prince Derek with sound clips and images.
Derek is the son of Queen Uberta, which makes him the prince of her kingdom. He is a daft expert in offending women in five syllables or less, which leads to him initially blowing his chance at getting it on with Princess Odette after spending their childhood hating each other. Derek truthfully only loves Odette for her beauty, partially because Odette doesn't give him any other reason to love her such as common interests or anything realistic like that. On an interesting note, Derek is one of the few characters in the franchise to perform his own singing.
EDITOR'S OPINIONI'll say up front that I am not fond of this particular series on the grounds of it being a pale imitation of Disney during a time (commonly known as the "Renessaince") when the company was actually making money again after two decades of financial floundering. As such, its prince character, Derek, is an extension of the series' attempt at riding on Disney's then-recent success in that Derek has no notable personality quirks to speak of (much like Disney's own "prince" characters), which doesn't give his voice actors very much to work with. The character's cookie cutter nature is made more obvious by the fact that all three of his VAs sound very similar to each other and make no attempt to add coloring to his character beyond "generic Disney prince". As such, none of these performances impress me at all, so I just can't make an opinion on who is the "best".
