James Earl Jones - my 123rd pick as a Disney Legend


My 123rd choice as a Disney Legend is known as the voice of the most terrible villain in film history. James Earl Jones is the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars saga. Granted Disney has just recently acquired the exclusive rights to the Star Wars universe, but Jones has worked with the company prior to this merger. He has voiced Darth Vader under the Disney umbrella in Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One.

He provided the voice of Mufasa in Disney's The Lion King and its 1998 sequel, The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. He will reprise the role of Mufasa in the live-action version of The Lion King directed by Jon Favreau. He was also one of the international hosts in Fantasia 2000. He also hosted The Story Behind the Story: The Lion King, on the 2001 2-disc DVD of Beauty and the Beast and American Legends. He also voiced Santa Claus in two Recess episodes and Recess Christmas: Miracle on Third Street. Jones reprises his role as Darth Vader in the Star Tours: The Adventures Continue attraction at Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios. He was also the narrator in Judge Dredd. He has served as a celebrity narrator for the Christmas Candlight Processional at ECPOT. He provides the voice of Mufasa in the EPCOT attraction Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable.
