The Clone Wars Season 4 might be over, but we’ve got a very special interview to help ease the waiting for Season 5. We interviewed James Arnold Taylor, the voice actor for Obi-Wan Kenobi. James was nice enough to do an audio interview, so we turned it into a cool little video. Not only does James answer our questions, he does some other awesome voices too!

You can also check out the trailer for James’ “Talking to Myself” one man show.

Newsarama Interview with Tom Taylor

Newsarama did an interview last Friday with comic writer Tom Taylor covering the recent release of Blood Ties: Boba Fett is Dead #1. They talk about Fett’s family, revenge, westerns, and I really liked the last answer Tom gave in the interview. It’s worth checking out.

It says it all in the title: “Boba Fett Is Dead”. How did it happen, and where does that lead this story?

Tom Taylor: For starters, the most infamous bounty hunter in the galaxy isn’t the most universally-loved guy. Boba Fett probably doesn’t receive a lot of holocards on Valentines Day, he probably has a quiet one with the Sarlacc pit.


If you leave that many bodies behind and cause that much pain, eventually you’re going to find someone with the money and resources to take revenge, and that’s exactly how our story begins, not with a whimper but with a bang… a lot of bangs. Well, not ‘bangs’… blasters don’t go bang. More ‘Choom!’ ‘Choom!’‘Fwwooom’ and ‘Agghhh, I needed that limb!’ ‘Rrrrrrrnnnn… Thud!’
