What do Wolverine and Ariel have in common? Not much, other than the fact that you can meet the voices behind those characters at Momocon later this year! Jodi Benson is a voice actor most well-known for her performance of Ariel in The Little Mermaid film franchise. She also voiced Ariel in the TV series version of The Little Mermaid. On top of that, Benson played Barbie in Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3, so be sure to greet her with a “Hi Barbie!” when you see her at Momocon.

Wolverine may be most associated with Hugh Jackman when it comes to actors, but he is far from the only thespian to bring Logan to life. Wolverine has a long history in animated entertainment, including roles in Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Wolverine & The X-Men. Steve Blum voiced Wolverine in those shows and in other projects like Hulk & The Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Ultimate Spider-Man, and The Super Hero Squad Show. He has also brought life to characters such as Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat, Ares from God Of War, and Zeb from Star Wars: Rebels.
