The cast of Disney’s “Jessie” join Spidey for an extra spooky Halloween edition of “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors”! Spider-Man and the Jessie crew end up locked in a museum on Halloween night, which sounds like a fun adventure, but then Morgan Le Fay shows up casting spells. We here at Marvel.com interviewed Cameron Boyce, Karan Brar, and Peyton List from the cast of “Jessie” by email about spending time with Spidey. Read what the cast had to say and tune in to the Halloween special this Sunday at 8:00 p.m. ET on Disney XD!
Marvel.com: What was it like recording voices for the animated series compared to what it’s like acting on “Jessie”?
Cameron Boyce: It takes a week; three days of rehearsal and two days of shooting to make a “Jessie” episode. On an animated series, depending on how many lines you have, it takes between 20 minutes and two hours, if you have a lot of material. You stand in a booth and give a couple different line readings and then you move on to the next line. And you don’t have to look attractive so it’s awesome.
Karan Brar: Recording voices for an animated show versus a live-action is completely different because in live-action, we can use our body language to help with our acting. In animation, we have to rely only on our voices, which tends to be hard at times!
Peyton List: The difference was I had to be more energetic with my voice so I had to work a lot harder.
Marvel.com: What was your reaction when you found out that you’d be lending your voices to “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors”?
Cameron Boyce: I was excited! I’ve done voice-over stuff before so it wasn’t new to me, but I love spending time with my castmates. It was a fun day!
Karan Brar: When I heard I was gonna be in the show I freaked out because I’m such a big Spider-Man fan! It was a real dream come true.
Marvel.com: What was your favorite part about voicing a character for “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors?”
Peyton List: There’s so much history to the character and pop culture surrounding Spider-Man. The fact that our cast has now become associated with such an iconic character is a big deal for all of us.
Marvel.com: Were you a fan of Spider-Man or any other Marvel super heroes before your guest spot in the show?
Cameron Boyce: X-Men is absolutely my favorite bunch when it comes to super heroes.
Karan Brar: I actually am a huge fan of Spider-Man, along with tons of other Marvel super heroes like Iron Man and Thor!
Marvel.com: What is your first Spider-Man and/or Marvel memory?
Peyton List: Spencer [List’s twin brother] and I filmed a part for “Spider-Man 2” when we were five-years old, and we were arguing over how to spell “Spider-Man.”
Marvel.com: Have you ever dressed up as a Marvel super hero for Halloween?
Cameron Boyce: I dressed up like the Hulk when I was really little! I have pictures of me with these giant green hands on, it looks like I was off-balance because the hands were so big!
Karan Brar: Yeah! Back in first grade I dressed up as Spider-Man. I was a huge Spider-Man fan.
Marvel.com: If you could join any of the Marvel super hero teams, which would you join?
Cameron Boyce: X-Men absolutely! I love the whole concept; it would be a blast to go to Professor X’s school.
Karan Brar: I would join the Avengers because everyone in the group is awesome!
Marvel.com: If you could have any Marvel super hero crossover into “Jessie,” who would it be?
Cameron Boyce: The Hulk! That would make for an interesting plot.
Karan Brar: I would probably bring Iron Man on the show since I think the Iron Man suit is super cool.
