In the trailer for “Rick and Morty” Season 7, fans can hear the new voices for its dimension-hopping duo across a variety of scenarios ranging from normal speech to screaming during the wacky fight scenes the series is known for. Fans are mostly happy with the new casting, even if they give Morty’s vocal replicant the edge. “Morty sounds exactly the same,” one Redditor wrote.
Another fan, u/RedLumberjack22, who claims to be an audio engineer, commented, “From this trailer alone I think Morty’s voice is pretty spot on. Rick’s voice, however, is good but sometimes when speaking the volume/tone of voice sounds like he has a cold a little.” The user proposed that the new voice actor for Rick “is doing the ‘Rick Voice’ from a different part of their throat than Justin [Roiland] did”.
But if there’s one more opinion that seemed to be widely shared across social media, it’s that “Rick and Morty” fans are simply happy to have another batch of their favorite show on the horizon. With the fate of the series uncertain in the initial wake of Roiland’s ousting, Adult Swim nonetheless managed to keep a tight schedule. Season 7 will bow October 15, keeping it on track after the previous season, which started in September of last year. As u/hobbobnobgoblin put it, “I honestly forgot [until] the end of the trailer that the voices were different. I’m just stoked for more rick and morty.”
