Dave Bossert and Aljon Go chat with Bret Iwan, Disney's Official Voice of Mickey Mouse, and illustrator about his life and career in art and voicing the iconic Mickey Mouse! The duo also talk about the latest pop-culture news, box office, and streaming news.
Iwan is the fourth and current official voice of Mickey Mouse, a role that he assumed from the late Wayne Allwine. He graduated from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. In 2004, he became an illustrator at Hallmark. Iwan first recorded Mickey Mouse dialogue for the Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park and 2009 shows Disney On Ice: Celebrations and Disney Live: Rockin' Road Show. He voiced Mickey Mouse in Have a Laugh! He gave his first full performance as Mickey Mouse for the English version of the PlayStation Portable game Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. His first voice-over work in a Disney Park could be heard in the Animal Kingdom closing show "Adventurers' Celebration Gathering" as well as on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover attraction at the Magic Kingdom, in which upon passing through Mickey's Star Traders, Mickey responds with his signature laugh and says "That's right, it's outta this world!"*
