    It is Academy Award-winning, English actress Dame Judi Dench.

    What are your thoughts on the choice?

    I think he's basing it on the CM portal officially saying it's true.

    Anywho, i'm excited, it will give SSE a new feel. It will be harder to compare it to the previous versions. Sort of distancing it from the others.

    Was the title of Dame bestowed on her by the Queen?

    Not sure if you did on the main page, but other places say her name is Judi with an "i" not the "y" - i misspelled it a few times too.

    Yep she would have attended the Palace and received it from the Queen.

    She was created Dame of Order of the British Empire in 1988.

    still disappointed that it's not Patrick Stewart as originally rumored, but I'll wait to hear her version before making a decision.

    It's going to be such a change since I'm so used to Jeremy Irons.

    But I'm eager to hear the new version.

    My only concern was that they chose somebody with dignity and intelligence. They have done so, and thus it should be amazing. I look forward to riding Spaceship Earth again...when I can find a way to get out there.

    Slightly off topic here, but what exactly *IS* a Dame of the British Empire?

    She's the one who won an Oscar for a movie she was in for 10 minutes right? That's about how long Spaceship Earth is I think... hey, good choice! :ROFLOL:

    Well, if she's not well received you can bet they'll replace her right away, like Vic Perrin!

    I like the female voice at the beginning, decent, and return but I'm not so sure as a narrator.

    This announcement slowed down my anticipation.

    Come on Disney!
