Bret William Iwan is an American voice actor and illustrator. He has been the fourth official voice of Mickey Mouse.
Bret Iwan has loved the legacy and story of Walt Disney for as long as he can remember, but never dreamt he would one day voice Walt’s most iconic character, Mickey Mouse
After learning of auditions being held to understudy with the third voice of Mickey Mouse, Wayne Allwine, Iwan wasted no time submitting his high-pitched performance. Since 2009, Iwan has been the official voice of Mickey Mouse, providing the famous falsetto for Disney theme parks around the world, video games, toys, promotional material, game shows, live shows, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (2009-2016), Mickey and the Roadster Racers (2017-2019), Mickey’s Mixed-Up Adventures (2019), and Mickey Mouse Funhouse (2021) television series.
When Iwan is not performing behind the microphone, he continues his passion for design, as well as wood working, restoration, and steam locomotive engineering. Since 2017, Iwan has worked as a steam mechanic, and engineer on several railroads, and is currently building his own steam locomotive, much like Walt Disney did.
The opportunities presented by the role continue to surprise him, and he looks forward to “fillin’ in for the boss” far into the future. Iwan resides in Los Angeles, California.
