Chabert voicing Princess in next Sonic

Sega announces voice talent for their Xbox 360 and PS3 Sonic the Hedgehog installment.

Mean Girl Lacey Chabert is to be the voice behind Princess Elise in the first next-gen instalment in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Mississippi-born Chabert is best known for her role as Claudia Salinger in the TV show Party of Five and also starred in The Brooke Ellison Story and Mean Girls. Chabert has been playing Sonic games since she was 9 years old and said she was "thrilled" at nabbing the part. The game will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles in time for the Christmas gift-giving frenzy. This is the second recent Sega game to feature Hollywood voice talent--gritty underworld action adventure Yakuza featured the likes of Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars), Rachael Leigh Cook, and Eliza Dushku.

@ 6-signObito: First of all, grab some sort of spell checker. Thanks. But yes, it is in fact Jason Griffith's, in fact it is the entire 4Kids Sonic X English Voice Cast. Which i have to be honest with everyone here, with some well written dialogue to read from, i do believe these voice actors are better than the Adventure ones by far. Especially Mike Pollock as Eggman, much better in every way. This is good news on SEGAs part, this game is definitely looking like its going to live up to its potential. However even with bad camera (possibly, its like clipping in a wrestling game, bad camera + sonic is a fact of life) and cheesy dialogue (possibly, everything I'm hearing so far is believable and well done), i think this game still will kick large portions of ass, and is a welcome addition to my growing Xbox 360 collection.

Nice choice for a female character. Chabert has that type of voice that suits a videogame.

Finally a voice actor that's actually interested in the subject matter. I think it's funny and impossibly coincidental when they find voice actors for INCREDIBLY well-known charcters and the actors have never heard of them.

Of course this is old I heard about this back in september. SEGA did sign a deal with 4kids voices and she aint a 4kids voice actor. Yipee... but this reminds about how the old voices actors got replaced.
