In an email interview with StarWars.com, producer Aaron Blank discussed the audiobook’s all-star cast.

“This was a fun opportunity to do a full-cast Star Wars audiobook, which we’ve only been able to truly do thus far with Ian Doescher’s William Shakespeare’s Star Wars audiobooks because they’re written as plays,” said Blank. “We got lucky this time in From A Certain Point of View with all the multiple first person points of view.”

“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,” he continued. “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.”

Full audiobook cast:

Jonathan Davis
Ashley Eckstein
