    Also they video I filmed is in very low quality. But that could for sure have something to do with it.

    I found this post from the other thread interesting.

    it sure sounds a lot like JEJ for most of them. There are spots in the Hall of Promise where it does not--Foolish mortals! almost sounds like a different person.

    But then I found this, and apparently JEJ does some of the Darth Vader for Disneyland, but this guy, Fred Tatsciore, does him too "Voices of the Parks" demonstrate their voice talents at the 2011 Disney D23 Expo - YouTube He is at about the 6:30 mark.

    Unfortunately not.

    Tony Baxter was spotted heading that way the other night. Could it be?

    I also noticed while on my many rides yesterday they have fixed Indiana Jones's dialogue in the boulder scene.

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    Ok I got two videos here you you compare.

    The "new original" voice for the chamber of destiny has a higher tone than the "original" voice does, which sounds deeper than the "new original". Take a look/listen,

    Indiana Jones Adventure Temple of the Forbidden Eye Mara's Voice Returns! - YouTube <......New Original voice


    ......> Original, start at 4:15 Disneyland Indiana Jones ride (Temple of the forbidden eye) - YouTube


    The top video sounds more higher tone in voice than bottom video for both the chamber of destiny and the hall of promise

    But eventhough the voice sounds higher pitched, it still sounds like it could be the same person.
    Also I must note that I understand that it most likely being re-recorded by the same person, it wont sound exactly the same, specially after all these years. But you have been on it multiple times OP, so I dont doubt you.

    I just wanted to point this out.

    But IF, a major if. If someone else did do it, then they did a FANTASTIC JOB.

    Yup, same original voice actor, same recording, just higher in pitch. The delivery that fits this attraction is there however. The tone was just totally absent from that replacement voice. So glad they rectified this.

    And that blood effect on the face..................chilling.
    "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    The youth one. By far the best. As much as I like the variety I almost wish it they all transitioned into it.

    Yes it is not as deep as before which is slightly frustrating but it is the same recording, just been modified as Blake's analysis shows:

The two sound identical outside of obvious minor quality issues with the video version that are just the nature of the recording. Sibilance, inflection, etc. are identical. It's the same performance. Specifically, of the three original variants, it sounds like either the one that came after "Infidels!" or after "Foolish mortals!" (I'm not sure those were even a separate performance.) It does not sound like the variant after saying "No!", which sounds a bit softer. I can also confirm that the speed is identical. For example, "You looked into my eyes" lasts very close to 2.8 seconds.

    I'm normally used to doing this sort of thing to compare concert recordings and verify dates and locations, but it works here, too.

    When you come up to Indy he has an intro saying ex: "Sallah, get a light on down here" and then as the boulder is coming he says something else ex: "Uh oh we got company". There are many variants, however for a long time he would just say two intro's. It has been fixed so now he says the correct things.

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    Here's a video I shot today (8/29/13) of the return of Mara's old voice:



    and here's a video that I recorded last week showing off the new voice that most people hate:

    Wow. I hope this is not something that will happen frequently or at all.
