Agreed! I've always imagined him having a far deeper voice, so this was a bit off putting. With that being said I'm still delighted to see best stallion finally getting some much needed character development.

P.S. This thread better be /arch/ed, given the fact that this is MLPs official last season.

Might just only be deeper when in his shadow form? "Yes... Crystals..." - King Sombra

Actually, is it even still Jim Miller who's voicing him now that he has actual lines?

Personally I've always imagined his voice sounding like video related. It's wired even before listening to this song that was exactly how I imagined his voice.

I find the voice a bit off putting because it's far from what I expected, but at least they're keeping some consistency, even with small details like the voice of a character with no prior lines.

I heard that. I REALLY hope its not going to actually be jim when the episode comes out and this is just a joke or something, because having a non-VA start voicing your characters in your final season sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Jim was the original VA for Sombra, so he technically already did start. Plus he's done other roles. Mostly minor, but his biggest other role was Trouble Shoes back in Appleloosa's Most Wanted.

Wasn't aware of the trouble shoes bit... but still, using his prior voicing of sombra is more a mark AGAINST him given how terribly recieved that was :P

On that note, its going to be somewhat interesting to see how they're going to portray sombra this time around, as it looks like they're more or less completely ignoring his modus operi/character from the S3 premier in favor of portraying him like his S5 portrayal (the focus on appearing as a humanoid (Well, pony shaped) individual rather than a cloud and being focused on Mind controlling to make an army as his schtick (based on what the previews show).

Jim. Just stop. Seriously. Just... stop.

He really does sound horribly dopey.

When I watched that teaser and heard Jim's voice performance, I lost all interest. I won't go on. I'd rather let people make up their own minds when they hear it in full context of the premier this weekend when the episode runs.

I was actually very excited for the premier with the initial synopsis and setup, but damned, does this voice and mannerisms really kill it for me.

I just can't take Sombra seriously like this, and the fact that its jim voicing him smacks of either not caring enough to get serious VA for him or egocentricism to use yourself for something this important, neither of which are good options.

I'm hoping I'll be pleasantly surprised when it airs, but this is coming off almost as bad as the initial appearance of sombra in S3.
