About a year ago, a leaked voice acting audition clip popped up on Youtube that caused waves throughout the fandom. It sounded like Morgan Freeman was planning on voicing Applejack in a future season!
Sadly, this never happened. Seasons two and three came and went, and the general consensus was that Mr. Freeman didn't make the cut.
But 12 minutes ago on Twitter, Tara Strong dropped a bombshell. Apparently Twilight's shape and abilities aren't the only things changing! With her new alicorn goddess powers, it's only natural that she would need a godlike voice.
Look forward to Morgan "Sparkle" Freeman in season 4 and beyond.
