To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, an anthology book is being released next month from Del Rey, and features an all-star cast including Mad Men’s Jon Hamm as Boba Fett.
StarWars.com has stated that the audiobook, entitled From a Certain Point of View, includes such names as Jonathan Davis, Ashley Eckstein, Janina Gavankar, Jon Hamm, Neil Patrick Harris, January LaVoy, Saskia Maarleveld, Carol Monda, Daniel José Older and Marc Thompson.
Speaking to StarWars.com, producers Aaron Blank and Nick Martorelli told fans a little more about From a Certain Point of View:
“Since we have over 40 authors in this collection retelling different moments from Star Wars literary history, we wanted to use the audiobook as an opportunity to work with an all-star cast of narrators. We matched our veteran Star Wars narrators with stories that suited their talents, and from there we dreamed big and reached out to people who might have been interested in celebrating this landmark 40th anniversary project,” Martorelli explained of the all-star cast.
Blank stated that the short stories were one of the reasons that they were able to get such big names involved: “In addition to multiple perspectives, short stories mean a small time commitment in the recording studio, and that enabled us to pursue some big names! We know some of these readers — like Jon Hamm (reading as Boba Fett) and Neil Patrick Harris (reading about an Imperial officer in the Death Star) — might not be available for an entire audiobook, but we were able to bring them on board for this project.”
