Star Wars The Clone Wars Voice Actors Set to Reprise Their Roles in Battlefront 2; New Character Schedule Release Detailed
EA has announced today that some of the main cast of the critically-acclaimed Star Wars animated show, The Clone Wars, will be reprising their roles in Battlefront 2.
Back at E3 2018, the developers announced some new DLC characters would be making its way to the game later this year; the list included infamous General Grievous, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Count Dooku, and the man himself Anakin Skywalker.
All of the mentioned above characters were in the Clone Wars show so it would make sense for all of them to return to reprise their role right? Right. Matthew Wood (General Grievous), James Arnold Taylor – Obi-Wan Kenobi, Corey Burton – Count Dooku, and Matt Lanter – Anakin Skywalker will all be present to return to the iconic roles.
Thanks to EA, we got a deeper look into each of the voice actors return to the role, check out the interviews down below:
Matthew Wood – General Grievous (releasing October 30)
“I always love revisiting characters from the Clone Wars era, because I feel like there are so many stories to be told! Now, we have the ability to actually set foot into General Grievous’ shoes and see how he operates in real-time. That’s really exciting to me, to be able to portray the character in such a way! I’m a gamer myself, so I can’t wait to see how all this pans out with what the team has created.”
James Arnold Taylor – Obi-Wan Kenobi (releasing November)
“It is probably the greatest honor for me as an actor, to have gotten to play this character for so many years. And in so many iterations! The television show, video games, toys, a movie . . . It’s one of those ‘pinch me moments’ in my life, because I still kind of wake up some days and go, ‘I . . . I get to be Obi-Wan Kenobi?’ It’s fantastic!”
Corey Burton – Count Dooku (releasing January)
“It’s always a joy to slip into the Sith cape! It’s been a delight from the very start. I love playing these sort of evil, wizardly mastermind kind of characters where their strength is a quiet, intense simmer, rather than throwing thunderbolts and hollering. It’s sort of very subtle, and it draws you in instead of blasting out the performance.”
Matt Lanter – Anakin Skywalker (releasing February)
“I’m a gamer! I played the first Star Wars Battlefront often. Not really lately, I’ve got a new baby at home and she’s nine months, so I haven’t had a whole lot of gaming time recently. But before that – Battlefront is my game! I grew up playing first person shooters, and I love Star Wars. You know, I perform Star Wars, but I’m also a huge fan. A mix of the both is my perfect game. To be able to be a part of it is pretty incredible.”
Battlefront 2 is now available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC players. Are you still playing the Star Wars shooter? Planning on jumping back in come the new free DLC release? Let us know in the comments below!
