John Leguizamo! ;)

Either that, or Sonic fan pressure will have Stumpy Joe back in the booth before the movie comes out. ;)

Wouldn't that be a given? Can't recall anytime a video game voice was used for a big budget movie.

Do the Transformers voices count...? I’m not a fan but if there was a game then surely they used the animated/feature voices?

Yes, they used Peter Cullen and Frank Welker from the cartoon.

Much as I just think Transformers is/are dumb (Bumblebee was fairly "okay" but by the end of that, they’d given up even any pretence of these things transforming and just did hyper whirry-blurry FX and didn't even attempt to give the illusion of different parts moving around to make up the car or robot, which just overstated how crap the concept really is), but Cullen does have the most awesome voice, especially when he's Primed.

Bumblebee was trying to do “more faithful” transforming to the cartoon by making them
“simpler” (a bit of a shame given how cool they looked in the Bay films).

Pretty good though.

I wonder why this was developed under Illumination and not DreamWorks? Chris Meledandri's edict was that Illumination would only produce their own in-house properties, but that the "new" DWA would take on some "brands"…

DWA is now only a "label" for Illumination to spin off DWA's streaming-cartoon movie-followup series into "sequels" to the marketable classics.
Like the Spirit knockoff of the Netflix little-girl series sequel, or "Boss Baby: Family Business", which seems to be spun off of the series Because They Could.

If Universal wants to PUSH anything--like Mario, in time for their theme-park expansion that made a lot more sense at the Japanese park--they're going to let you know whose studio is pushing it.
