Voices of the Lifestream.
Back in 1997, Final Fantasy VII was a groundbreaking title that went down in history for its incredible storytelling and mindblowing CG cutscenes. However, the game wasn’t voiced due to limited hardware at the time meaning you had to imagine voices, yes I imagined Barrett voiced by Mr T back in 1997 because I loved The A-Team.
Now in 2020, Final Fantasy VII Remake has an incredible voice cast with characters who have never had a voice of their own before and thanks to Square Enix we no longer need to wonder who the cast is as they revealed the English cast which you can see below.
- Cloud Strife: Cody Christian (All American, Teen Wolf)
- Barret Wallace: John Eric Bentley (Hart of Dixie, Lab Rats, Fear of the Walking Dead)
- Aerith Gainsborough: Briana White (Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Occupants)
- Tifa Lockhart: Britt Baron (GLOW, The Thing About Harry, My Valentine)
- Red XIII: Max Mittelman (Persona 5, One-Punch Man)
- Jessie: Erica Lindbeck (Spider-Man PS4, Mortal Kombat 11)
- Biggs: Gideon Emery (Dash & Lily, Teen Wolf, Dragon Age II)
- Wedge: Matt Jones (Bob Hearts Abishola, Breaking Bad)
- Sephiroth: Tyler Hoechlin
- Reno: Arnie Pantoja (Konosuba, Trolls, Sydney White)
- Rude: William Christopher Stephens (The Avengers, Spies in Disguise, Mortal Kombat 11)
- Tseng: Vic Chao (Seis Manos, Mortal Kombat X, Ben 10)
- President Shinra: James Horan (Metal Gear Solid V, Fallout: New Vegas, Love, Death & Robots)
- Heidegger: John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time)
- Scarlet: Erin Cottrell (Love’s Long Journey, The Identical)

- Reeve: Jon Root (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Fallout 76)

- Roche: Austin Lee Matthews (Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon, Trails of Cold Steel III)
- Don Corneo: Fred Tatasciore (Overwatch, Fortnite, Gears of War)
And there you have it! Wonder no longer or think like me and a vast majority of fans that Don Corneo was voiced by Mark Hamill because he isn’t.
