I had the opportunity to video an actual script reading with the actors of Star Wars – The Clone Wars this past weekend at Star Wars Fan Days III in Dallas, TX. The script was written on the fly by supervising director Dave Filoni while he sat on a red eye flight from California. The script was done in two parts – one for the good guys and one for the bad guys.
The actors that did the reading for the good guys part included Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker), Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano), Catherine Taber (Padme Amidala), James A Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Tom Kane (Yoda), and Dee Baker (Commander Rex, Cody, and all Clone Troopers).
The bad guys section included Matthew Wood (General Grievous), Nika Futterman (Asajj Ventress), and David Acord (A-4D). Lucasfilm Head of Fan Relations Stephen Sansweet acted as the Narrator of the proceedings. What we’ve got here is the whole reading, except about 20 seconds where we switched over to the bad guys. It was a real honor to get to sit in on this event and see all this voice talent on one stage at the same time. I’m sure you’ll agree.
