Dee Bradley Baker On Marvel Rising RolesReported by Foxwolf on Wednesday, September 5th 2018
Dee Bradley Baker is no slouch when it comes to human voice acting (he did voice all of the Clone Troopers in Star Wars: The Clone Wars). But his specialty that makes him stand out in the crowd is his creature voices.
In Marvel Rising, Baker voices both Tippy-Toe the squirrel (Squirrel Girl's assistant) and the teleporting Inhuman bulldog Lockjaw. This pairing of a small high pitched creature and a deep gruntier beast is similar to his iconic roles of Appa and Momo in Avatar: The Last Airbender.
In the BTS video below, Baker talks about his characters and explains that he's not just making creature noises, but still acting through those sounds, just without human words.
You can catch Baker's performance on the Marvel Rising: Initiation web shorts (free to watch on YouTube now) and also in an animated movie Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, which premieres on Disney Channel this fall.
