As the official audiobook reviewer for Coffee With Kenobi, it is my job to stay informed and provide a thorough review of each audiobook as it is released. Battlefront II: Inferno Squad narrated by Janina Gavankar is no exception. She is the image and voice used to create the main character for Battlefront II. I just finished watching season four of the Sleepy Hollow television series and watched the extended interview of Gavankar provided by The Star Wars Show.
We as fans of The Saga, quite frequently have been asked to welcome new talent into our galaxy. As I understand it, the idea that Janina Gavankar was, not only chosen as the main character for the new Battlefront II video game but was also invited to read this audiobook was so encouraging to me. Not only is she talented, but she is a fan! She is expressing her fandom and ability with such grace. She has allowed her passion and enthusiasm for Star Wars to shine through her performance. Iden Versio is the newest edition to the Star Wars cast of thousands and she is cool!
In case you were unable to catch the live stream from D23 earlier today, here is the Star Wars Battlefront II presentation. Featured was Iden Versio herself, Janina Gavankar, along with Steve Blank from the Lucasfilm Story Group, and a special guest — John Boyega!
