“It's been bittersweet to see this delightful creature take shape and come to the sad realization that he simply doesn't have my voice,” the actor said in a statement. “I've had the joy of seeing most of the film and it's going to be quite wonderful. I still feel rather protective of this bear and I'm pestering them all with suggestions for finding a voice worthy of him.” [THR]
