Sarah Michelle Gellar - "Happily N’Ever After" Movie - Animated About Happily

Wednesday 6 October 2004, by Webmaster

Sarah Michelle Gellar told SCI FI Wire that providing the voice of the lead character in the upcoming animated feature Happily N’Ever After was a dream come true. "That’s sort of a little love project that I’ve been working on for a couple of years," Gellar said in an interview while promoting her upcoming supernatural thriller, The Grudge. "I love children’s stories. I collect children’s books."

Gellar will provide the voice of Cinderella in a twist on the traditional fairy tale. Gellar’s husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., will also voice a role in the film. "It’s basically what happens when all the children’s stories sort of get combined and get messed up," she said. "I play Cinderella, and every little girl wants to be Cinderella. So I’ve finally gotten my chance. Freddie is also doing a voice for it. We recorded a little bit one day together, but most of it we recorded separately."

In addition to Gellar and Prinze, those providing voices for Happily N’Ever After include Sigourney Weaver, George Carlin, Andy Dick, Wallace Shawn and Patrick Warbuton. The film, which is still in production, will be released in 2005.

    There is a world of difference between providing a voiceover for a one-off animated film and committing to an on-going animated TV show, especially one that doesn’t even have an outlet to be broadcast.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar is a successful film actress (whether you like it or not) and her career is in an entirely different place to some of the other actors who appeared in BtVS.

    I guess I just don’t understand why she would do something like this, but not add her voice to at least the Buffy video games. I can see her not doing the animated cartoon because of film commitments, but almost everyone else did their voice for the video games except her and Alyson Hannigan who I belive was filming at the time. I know that Sarah wants to distance herself as far away from Buffy as possible, but H@LL I’d rather get typed cast as Buffy rather than Daphne anyday.

    Actually, Alyson Hannigan lent her voice to the first Xbox Buffy game. Sarah was the only person who didn’t. In Chaos Bleeds, Buffy, Anya, and Willow didn’t have their original voice actors.

    Buffy might have been the main catalyst for her becoming famous, but let’s not forget that she was an EMMY award winning actress before that show.

    You people are so not understanding...and stupid. She has said repeatedly ’Joss is a genious I am grateful for what Buffy has given me but I’m ready to move on. I want to seperate myself’ (paraphrasing here). She doesn’t want to be apart of Buffy anymore! She did it for seven years, and now she wants to try somthing new!!! Do you people not understand that her life does not revolve around you and your pathetic little lives? What she is doing is NOT a hobby...it is a career! Let the girl breathe and be happy for what she has done!!!
