One of those chosen for the occasion is xbuyer, known for his videos and streamings related to the world of football -such as the Kings League-. On the other hand we have Shooter, a content creator of viral challenges and pranks with his family and friends. Finally we come across widlera youtuber with content similar to the previous one, predominantly hidden cameras and impossible challenges as his main content.
wave of criticism
The responses to the announcement have not been long in coming. Paramount’s tweet has been filled with criticism of all kinds regarding the choice of three people who are not professionals in the world of dubbing. Although this has been the chosen trio, the influencer Wismichu already pointed out a few weeks ago that a production company had contacted him to dub in a film, as they remember from Espinof.
He himself refused this possibility, offered alternatives and the company refused. We now know that the proposed film was Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves and we are facing a case that is by no means exceptional in Spain.
Tried but not interested. Now they will still be surprised by the reception from the audience.

Alaska and Mario Vaquerizo in Stand by Me Doraemon, Andres Iniesta in Pirates! Lola Indigo in Space Jam: New Legends or melendi in How to Train Your Dragon 3 are examples of a recurring practice in the sector. We do not know exactly the reasons that lead companies to make these decisions, but everything indicates that it does not respond to the will of the decisions of each country.
We will see if there is a rectification to offer the position to specialists from the world of dubbing or if the agreement is maintained. In any case, we are talking about extremely unpopular proposals that do not satisfy the audience.
