Mark Elliott, The Voice Behind 90’s Disney Trailers, Has Passed Away
On April 4th, 2021, Disney voice actor Mark Elliott passed away. This news comes according to a tweet from his voice actor colleague, Joe Cipriano:
Elliott spent much of his career as the voice that introduced many of us to our favorite Disney films. He worked for Walt Disney Entertainment from 1983 until 2008, a timeframe that included what many consider to be the “renaissance” of Walt Disney animation. The Aristocats and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure Special Edition DVDs were the final trailers he announced, both released in 2008.
For many Disney fans in the 1990s, the experience of opening a brand new Disney VHS tape and putting it in the VCR was immediately followed by hearing Mark Elliott’s voice as he announced new and upcoming features.
Here are a few of our favorite trailers featuring Mark’s iconic voice work:
