Dwayne Johnson is no stranger to #Disney films, having already played in films such as Race to Witch Mountain and The Gameplan. However, he has yet to make his way into Disney cartoons, which really is the highlight of being a Disney actor. Screen Junkies had the opportunity to sit down with the actor during his press for his upcoming movie #Moana and had him do his interpretation of some of our favorite classic Disney animated characters. And he nailed it!
Er...sort of. Let's just say it was open to interpretation...
If you don't have time to watch the video right now, you can skip below to see the hilarious highlights.
Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story)
He had all the sass of the original actor, Tim Allen, with an intense and stoic "To infinity, and beyond," the famous catchphrase of the popular children's toy.
Gaston (Beauty and the Beast)
Both the directors of Moana, John Musker and Ron Clements as well as his costar Auli'l Cravahlo agreed that he would make a perfect live-action Gaston. As he does have "biceps to spare" that isn't that surprising, and he had a few choice words as the smarmy character - though I'm not sure, "LISTEN, bitch!" is anything that Gaston would say.
But hey, it's The Rock's interpretation...who am I to judge?
The Genie (Aladdin)
While it is hard to imagine anyone but #RobinWilliams playing that iconic role, Dwayne is clearly having a good time with his own interpretation of the magical being. If anyone were to take over the role for a live-action, I think that he could be an interesting choice. We already know thanks to the video he looks good in blue!
