Author Cavan Scott’s audiobook original Star Wars: The High Republic – Tempest Runner from Penguin Random House Audio is due out at the end of the month, and in this week’s episode of The High Republic Show on the official Star Wars YouTube channel, Lucasfilm revealed the full cast list for this highly anticipated audio drama.

What’s happening:

  • Lucasfilm Publishing and Penguin Random House Audio have announced the full voice cast for the upcoming audiobook original Star Wars: The High Republic – Tempest Runner, written by Cavan Scott.
  • Cast members will include Jessica Almasy as Lourna Dee, Dan Bittner as Councilor Wittick, Orlagh Cassidy as Ola Hest, Sullivan Jones as Bala, January LaVoy as Tasia, Kathleen McInerney as Councilor Fry, Tara Jayne Sands as Sestin, Vikas Adam as H7-09 and Raleigh, Jonathan Davis as Andrik Keller & Asgar Ro, Neil Hellegers as Kassav, Yudiah Dee, and Jano, Saskia Maarleveld as Avar Kriss and Parr, Soneela Nankani as Keeve Trennis & Muglan, Marc Thompson as Pan Eyta, Sskeer, and Marchion Ro, and Shannon Tyo as Nib Assek and Quin.

What they’re saying:

  • StarWars.com: “In Star Wars: The High Republic: Tempest Runner, Lourna Dee of the Nihil will seek revenge against the Jedi. While Tempest Runner builds on the groundwork laid thus far across The High Republic saga, it’s not a book or comic. The story has instead been written by Cavan Scott as an audio original, and will feature a full cast to bring the story to life, including many fan-favorite characters. In addition, Tempest Runner features a full score and sound effects, taking complete advantage of the audio original form. For fans of the Nihil, it’s not to be missed.”

Star Wars: The High Republic – Tempest Runner will be released on Tuesday, August 31 but is available for pre-order right now.
