18 Actors Who Have Voiced Multiple Disney And Pixar Characters

When it comes to the magical realm of Disney and Pixar characters, there are normally two things that bring them to life: the animators’ animation and artistry, and the performance of the voice actors, who give them soul. Many celebrities consider it an honor to play one of the iconic Disney/Pixar characters, and they return to other projects to lend their voices to these classic films.

You’d be shocked how many big stars have appeared in multiple Disney or Pixar films. Some voices are so well-known that you can instantly tell who they were spoken for. Some voices are more mysterious, making you feel as if you’ve heard them before, but you’re not quite sure where. They bring the characters to life on the screen with their pitch, tone, pronunciation, and enunciation.

Lucky for you, we’ve tracked down a list of actors who have voiced multiple characters for Disney and Pixar films. Let’s scroll down and enjoy!

#1 John Ratzenberger
