Marvel villain Tom Hiddleston (aka "Thor"'s Loki) isn't changing his tune for his new role, which will have him voicing a young version of "Peter Pan" antagonist Captain Hook in the upcoming animated Disney flick "The Pirate Fairy." But the actor, who showed up to promote the film at this past weekend's D23 Expo, did display his singing voice for the amped-up crowd.
While appearing alongside "Pirate Fairy" co-star Christina Hendricks and director Peggy Holmes, Hiddleston said that lending his voice to a Disney animated film made sense to him because he loved watching 1967's "The Jungle Book" as a child, even singing the song "The Bare Necessities" at an audition years ago.
Naturally, this admission made the crowd go wild, chiding Hiddleston to sing a few bars, which he did. Though he only sings part of the chorus, the tune fits Hiddleston's pipes well -- and shows off his dreamy British accent. Maybe Loki can belt out a tune or two in the "Thor" sequel?
"The Pirate Fairy" is due out sometime in early 2014.
