Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad Audiobook Will Be Narrated By Janina Gavankar!

The cat’s out of the bag – Christie Golden’s Star Wars Battlefront II tie-in novel Inferno Squad will be narrated by Janina Gavankar, the actress who portrays protagonist Iden Versio in the game’s campaign.

 

 

Word first got out on Jedi-Bibliothek that the actress would be handling the voice-over for the audiobook:

 


 

Naturally, word spread quickly on the Star Wars blogosphere and this got the attention of Ms. Gavankar herself:

 


Letting a previous voice actress reprise her role to narrate an audiobook is a pretty neat touch that Lucasfilm Licensing has dabbled in previously – after all, Ashley Eckstein did got to do the same for the Ahsoka novel. We look forward to hearing Gavankar get into her role for a second time (although, release-wise, this will be the first thing that she’s done).

The Inferno Squad novel covers the immediate aftermath of the events of Rogue One and A New Hope – following the Rebellion’s triumph against the Death Star, the Empire is out for blood and is targeting the last remnants of the Partisans in order to weaken the growing insurrection against the Empire. To do this, they enlist the newly-created task force known as Inferno Squad to take down the extremists. The audiobook will only be available as a digital download.
