Whoopi Goldberg Honored as a Disney Legend at D23 Expo


At the most recent D23 Expo: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event, iconic actress Whoopi Goldberg has been named as a Disney Legend, mostly for lending her voice to two popular Disney villains – Shenzi the hyena in The Lion King, and Stretch the gummy purple octopus in Pixar’s Toy Story 3. Being named a Disney Legend is another notch under Goldberg’s belt, as she is already one of the few artists who qualifies as an EGOT (an acronym used for people who has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award.) This means she can also add being a Disney Legend to the acronym, making her a DEGOT (or is it a LEGOT?)

“Disney and I go way back, since I was a little kid, I mean way back,” Goldberg said. “So it’s beyond an honor and a joy to become a Disney Legend because everybody knows I love Disney, Disneyland, Disney World, Disney movies, Disney toys and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! What’s better than this for a Disney-phile? Absolutely NOTHING!”

Aside from her main voice roles in Toy Story 3 and The Lion King, Whoopi Goldberg has also guest voiced on Disney Junior’s intergalactic animated series Miles From Tomorrowland, and had a recurring role as Magic Mirror on Disney Channel’s The 7D. Among her many voiceover credits, Goldberg has also voiced roles for Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken, Japanese animated feature Captain Planet and the Planeteers, and the classic 1995 series Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist.
