    Yeah, I think now it's even more appropriate that she isn't voiced.

    On a previous thread quite a few people, including me, thought that adding a voice now would be a very nice tribute. I'm sure it will be considered.

    i think you are going to get people that argue each side

    personally i think its disrespectful as they are retiring her character.

    When Doris Grau died in 1996, they retired Lunchlady Doris out of respect for her. But then in 2007 they brought her out of retirement and Tress MacNielle has been voicing her ever since.

    It's sad that Marcia Wallace has passed and my heart goes out to her family. But I honestly think they should keep Edna around in tribute to her & if anything, let Tress continue to voice her.

    I say keep her unvoiced, but add a non-canon in-game tribute sign, something like the radioactive man sign. Saying something like Bart's chalkboard in the recent ep

    No one could replace Marcia Wallace. It would be a discredit to continue her character with another voice.

    I'm sure adding her voice to this game would require a contract that would have to be signed by her estate and heirs. I would guess they have more pressing things to do right now then try to determine a fair market value for her voice work in the context of a freemium mobile game.

    Maybe later, after some time has passed, EA can approach the estate and offer a comparable deal to what they give the other voice talent. However, I assume they cut a deal with the six main cast members (and no one else) precisely to avoid haggling with the rest of the cast members to keep their expenses low.

    It's not like EA can just unilaterally add someone's voice to a game and not compensate them for it.

    *Exactly*....and I'm sure if Marcia wanted to be involved in the game she already would have been (I'm sure EA tried to get her when they got the rest of the voice actors)....IMHO it would be hugely disrespectful to add her now even if her estate agreed (when it's already pretty clear she didn't want to be involved)

    I'd wager that EA never even asked her, because they didn't want to pay for minor characters. They probably decided from the start to restrict it to the main six cast members. Maybe if the game is successful enough, they can start cutting deals with Milhouse (Pamela Hayden) and others.

    Sign me up for this petition. I think all the characters in the game should be voiced. Daft how some are and some are not.

    I can see it both ways on the Edna question.
    Personally I think it is a better tribute to keep the character in the show in memory of the person. Voicing the character is a difficult one though. Maybe she could get some throat disease from kissing principal Skinner that causes her voice to change permanently. Flashbacks to Skinner in Vietnam drunkenly kissing a monkey or something. It could make a whole episode with Dr Hibberd and his catchphrase.
    Just an idea.
    If The Simpsons use it though I'd like a place in the credits please.

    And the fact that she's dead irl doesn't make it disrespectful at all imo...
    I think it would be a tribute...
    She used half her life or something on that character for all I know...
    Would be disrespectful to replace her with a new voice, but for the game they could just take some recordings from the show...

    I can see both sides of this discussion; however, i just don't see it ever happening. If she wasn't voiced before, i seriously doubt she will get voiced now. Granted, i know there are hours and hours of recorded dialogue that they could technically use to voice her now, but i just don't think they would do it.
