    Wayne Allwine Voice of Mickey Mouse Passes away (Merged Threads x5)

    Voice Actor April Winchell is reporting that Wayne Allwine, the current voice of Mickey Mouse, has passed away.
    "JESUS!!! That's Cold!" -- Walt Disney's final words.

    "You hear people talk about, 'I don't think Walt would like this,' or 'I don't think Walt would like that.' You have no idea what Walt would want! No clue whatsoever! Because the people that worked with him day in and day out didn't know what Walt wanted. Walt didn't know what he wanted 'til he wanted it."
    -- Randy Thornton, Walt Disney Records

    Uh oh... that's terrible news!

    I understand that they've been searching for an understudy last month. I wonder if they found anyone in time.

    Re: Wayne Allwine

    That is truly awful...he's been performing the voice for so long.

    It's equally sad that Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse, his wife, will now have to be performing as Minnie without her husband. That seems sad as well.

    Terrible.

    I met him once at an event in Northern California and he was such a nice guy.

    It'll be so weird to hear the "new" Mickey voice.

    A Google search hasn't come up with any news releases. I was first notified of the passing from April Winchell, who also does voiceover work for Disney. And, Wayne's Wikipedia entry has been updated.

    No. But I am willing to put trust in April.

    I met him at an event at the El Capitan along with his wife. This is really sad. I went to April Winchell's web site and she says "RIP Wayne Allwine. He was only a year older than me.

    Cool Re: Wayne Allwine

    Wow. That's kind of shocking. He may have passed, but at least Mickey is alive and well.

    ^^ Wanye Allwine has done Mickey since 83. Walt Disney himself voiced Mickey for the character's first 20 years or so, then other people took over.
