Oh my Elsa! We know that you are excited!
Hi everyone, this article is focus on my personal favourite of the Asian Elsa. I'll also put the ratings from 1 to 10 and what I think about their voices, now their singing is base on their performances on Elsa's signature song, Let it Go.
Cantonese (Voice Actress: Jobelle Ubalde)
This has gotta to be the worse dub of any Disney movie ever! I hope that there will be no more Cantonese dub for future Disney movies, the choice for this actress is ridiculous.
She sounds like she's having a nasal while singing and most of the time it's like out of tune! So sorry to all of my friends from Hong Kong, but I'll have to give her a very low rating. (ratings: 0/10)
Taiwanese Mandarin (Voice Actress: "Shennio" Lin Hsin-Yi)
She sounds relatively young here, and I think this is how Elsa should sound like and I'm quite impressed with her rendition of the signature song.
Although at times she sounds a bit pitchy, but I'll give her a chance unlike her Cantonese counterpart. (ratings: 8.5/10)
Malay (Voice Actress: Marsha Milan Londoh)
My country girl who sang and voice Elsa, while I normally don't watch the Malay dub. I had the international version of the signature song, her version is quite decent for a Disney character and I'm very happy for her!
I also hope that she does more Disney work in the future and she sounds a lot like Elsa during the song despite listening to it a few times. (ratings: 9/10)
Indonesian (Voice Actress: Mikha Sherly Marpaung)
Our neighbour and although it was not feature in the International CD of Let It Go, I was very impress that she is another relatively new singer and was amazing! Like our Malaysian counterpart, she's awesome and I hope that she does more Disney songs although I listen to her version a bit.
Good job Indonesia and keep up the good work! (ratings: 9/10)
Mandarin Chinese (Voice Actress: "Jalane" Hu Waina)
I absolutely love her version of Let it Go, she nailed every high notes of the song. To me, she's the best Elsa of all the Asian Elsa!
Just so you know that she also provided the voice of Giselle in Disney's Enchanted and sang the theme song in Disney's Brave for the China's release, I'm very happy for her and give her full marks for it. (ratings: 10/10)
Korean (Voice Actress: Hye-Na Park)
The other dark horse and I absolutely love Korean because I watch Korean dramas back here in Malaysia, and not to forget Korean Pop music too! Ironically, like her English counterpart, she also played Elphaba in the Korean production of Wicked the Musical.
I saw clips of her performance of Elphaba on Youtube and I'm very impressed with her performance, so I wish her good luck with her Mainland Chinese counterpart. (ratings:10/10)
Japanese (Voice Actress: Takako Matsu)
Another language that I really love, she's an amazing singer and I did not know that she could really sing, it's like Elsa goes anime all of a sudden.
Although it's a difficult choice for me to decide among who is the best in the Asian category, I think it's going to be a tie between Mandarin Chinese, Korean and Japanese.(ratings: 10/10)
Hindi (Voice Actress: Sunidhi Chauhan)
Like Indonesian, she's another new comer. It looks like Elsa has gone to India for a holiday, met Aishwarya Rai and acts in a Bollywood movie with her! But, she sounds quite good I have to say.
The actress sounds very calm while singing the song and I really love her voice too! (ratings: 8/10)
Vietnamese (Voice Actress: Duong Hoang Yen)
She is another great singer who nail the song and I love her version, she sounds very convincing with the song and I like it.
She is also a very animated person when she sang both For the First Time in Forever and Let it Go, so bravo Vietnam! (ratings: 9.5/10)
Thai (Voice Actress: Wichayahnee Piaglin)
She sounds very cheerful during the song, as I had seen in the Let it Go behind the mic video on Youtube. There is something in her performance that I really like, is that she brings the character out.
So I'm very happy that she's representing my ancestral home country and I hope she does more Disney work in the future! (ratings: 9.5/10)
There you have it, these are all the Asian version of Let it Go and next time. I'll cover on the European version!
