codename: starkiller

Sam Witwer’s acting destiny seems inextricably linked with the dark side of the Force. Before becoming the voice of The Son and Maul in The Clone Wars, he played Galen Marek—AKA Starkiller, the secret Sith apprentice of Darth Vader—in the videogame Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. “It was around the time that The Clone Wars first came out that we released The Force Unleashed,” remembers Witwer. “We were very excited about the game. We felt we were telling a very cool story that honored the prequels and the original trilogy, but it was meant to exist in a sort of parallel Star Wars world. If you look at the Force users in the game, they were all amped up to 11.” Indeed, The Force Unleashed is famous for its extensive and expanded…

01 “REY FIGHTER” BY UZURI ART Uzuri’s evocative work of art perfectly encapsulates Rey’s journey from lowly scavenger on Jakku to Resistance hero en route to Exegol. Uzuri completed her portrait of Rey by shading, coloring, and detailing before adding the helmet and background in order to ensure the focus remained on her subject. “I created this piece to illustrate the determination Rey has, which is one of the many reasons I love her,” says Uzuri. “Her aspirations, in a way, came full circle.” 02 “THE ARMORER” BY DELANEY Drawing inspiration from the musical notes of The Mandalorian’s soundtrack and the imagery of Thor’s hammer, Delaney finished an initial sketch before moving on to inking the line art, blocking in the main colors, shading, and adding depth. With an impressive eye for detail, the…

a voice in the dark

“I found out I was doing it a couple days before I went into the studio,” explains Eckstein about her character’s surprise vocal appearance in the movie. “I walked into the theater at Bad Robot, and there was Matthew Wood [supervising sound editor] and J.J. Abrams, the director. J.J. shook my hand and introduced himself, and immediately thanked me for being in the movie. I couldn’t believe it.” Ahsoka’s ethereal voice is one of many Jedi lending support to Rey in her darkest hour, so how did Eckstein approach her character’s dialogue given it’s impossible to determine which time period Ahsoka was speaking from? “J.J. asked a similar question after I’d recorded the lines. He said, ‘Being a voice actor, obviously you’re not on set, you’re not physically acting a scene out,…
