The High Republic Phase 2 has been on a solid streak as of late. The adult novel Convergence rounded out the first full set of novels around a month ago. Now, we are getting our first good look at the audio drama that will bridge the two waves of content: The Battle of Jedha. Be warned, there are spoilers for Convergence ahead.
The Battle of Jedha picks up after the wedding between Xiri A’lbaran and Phan-tu Zenn. As the title suggests, everything has begun to converge on Jedha. The Jedi, Republic, Path of the Open Hand, and many of the other Force groups in the galaxy have all come to this sacred planet following the war between Eiram and E’ronoh.
Just like Tempest Runner in Phase 1, The Battle of Jedha will be voiced by a full cast. Here is the list of all the voice actors/actresses and their respective characters.
Raphael Corkhill as Creighton Sun
Kristen Sieh as Aida Forte
Christian Barillas as Mesook
Jonathan Davis as Piralli
Sean Kenin Elias-Reyes as P3-7A
James Fouhey as Ensemble
Neil Hellegers as Elder Delwin
Philip Hernandez as Morton San Tekka
Catherine Ho as Silandra Sho
David Lee Huynh as Selik
Sullivan Jones as Tilson Graf
January LaVoy as The Mother
Saskia Maarleveld as Meldan
Kathleen McInerney as Moona
Brandon McInnis as Keth Cerapath
Cassandra Morris as Gella Nattai
John Pirkis as The Herald
Salli Saffioti as Ambassador Cerox
Marc Thompson as Mytion and Kradon
Shannon Tyo as Marda Ro
You’ll surely recognize many of these characters from Convergence, Path of Deceit, and Quest for the Hidden City; however, there are several original characters as well. Jonathan Davis, Marc Thompson, and January LaVoy remain mainstays for Star Wars book narration.
In addition to the cast list, there was also a 7+ minute excerpt that was released on starwars.com, detailing the arrival of the Jedi contingent on Jedha.
