The oh-so-wistful character Winnie the Pooh is currently being voiced by actor Jim Cummings — who recently made an appearance at the multi-genre convention ConnectiCon. While there, Cummings read a scene from Star Wars as the roly-poly bear, portraying Darth Vader. Lauren Landa joined him for the reading — the actress known for her vocal roles in anime and video games.
The duo read the scene in which Princess Leia is led down a hallway after being captured by Vader’s men. As soon as the crowd hears Cummings’ solemn voice utter, “Don't play the innocent your Highness. You weren't on any mercy mission this time,” they burst out in laughter. The juxtaposition of Vader’s imposing image with that tiny, cracking voice is too good. Even Cummings has a hard time keeping it together.
