Shur’tugal now has reason to believe that Rachel Weisz, known for movies such as The Constant Gardener and Constantine, has been cast for the voice of Saphira in the Eragon movie. Weisz’s name appeared on the bottom of the most recent Eragon movie poster (her name has been boxed in red), with the word “with” appearing before her name, indicating that her voice, and not image, will be in the movie. Weisz’s voice, a female voice with a British accent, is exactly what Fox has said they were looking for.
Fox has kept quiet about the voice for Saphira until now, having not made any comments. When asked to confirm or comment, our Fox representative told us that Fox has no comment at this time, however, we were told to expect an official announcement soon. We’ll update you as soon as we know more.
