Although a quick look at the filmography of Hamill could let you know when he retired exactly, because their claims are fairly consistent until the last year, the voice acting is performed at a different time to that of its counterpart of action in vivo. The voices that are recorded is the first part of the production of a project, carried out well in advance of the animation itself. In this way, the animators can match the characters that they speak the length and the rhythm of the lines. The recording also takes much less time than the filming of scenarios and locations, which has a large number of variables that require a lot of time to keep both, instead of one person talking while sitting in a booth.

Mark Hamill is best known among the general public for his role in Star Wars, but also has had a career which is prolific as a voice actor. The most notable of these is a period of 25 years portraying the Joker in various media of Batman, starting with the series seminal 90’s and continuing on to numerous animated films, series and games, and even a cameo vocal in the pilot episode of the short. Birds of prey lived.
