At last, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is now just a few weeks away. The game’s original release date was pushed back, and for a long time, fans of the franchise weren’t sure when or even if the title would eventually reappear on the release schedule.
Not only do we now know more details about the game on top of its release date, but we also now know which voice actors will be reprising their beloved animated Star Wars roles.
Fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be especially pleased to learn that both Matt Lanter and James Arnold Taylor will return as the voices of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi respectively. Both actors voiced the iconic characters throughout the animated series that aired its seventh and final season on Disney+ in 2020.
Additionally, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams will both reprise their original roles as C-3PO and Lando Calrissian. Sam Whitwer will once again voice Maul and will also provide the voice for Palpatine. Matthew Wood will voice General Grievous, and Corey Burton will voice Count Dooku.
Finally, on a much more bittersweet note, Tom Kane’s voice will be heard through the characters of Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn throughout the game. The veteran voice actor entered early retirement last year due to his declining health, but presumably completed the voice work for The Skywalker Saga long before this occurred.
The game is expected to build upon (pun absolutely intended) previous LEGO Star Wars titles by involving familiar elements fans love combined with new features such as being able to choose a starting point, unlocking planets, and more. Hearing these familiar voices once again is just one of many things that will make the experience worth the wait.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will release on multiple platforms on April 5, 2022, including but not limited to PC, Xbox One and Series S/X, Playstation 4/5, and more.
