Collect All 21 electronic edition: Dee Bradley Baker interview

Please note: As of April 2012, Hukilau has closed its virtual doors, but I have made the expanded digital edition of Collect All 21! available through Amazon.

As I mentioned when Hukilau published the electronic “A Few Special Modifications Edition” of Collect All 21! Memoirs of a Star Wars Geek last summer, the expanded version includes interviews with some Star Wars personalities about being first-generation fans of the saga who grew up to play in George Lucas’ sandbox.

Since it seems likely that the recent holiday season has led to a few new owners of e-book readers and tablet computers, I figure it’s a good time to offer a fun glimpse at of some of the material that sets the Hukilau edition apart from the original paperback. I also figure people who like to talk and read about Star Wars would also enjoy listening to people who work on Star Wars projects geek out a little bit about it.

My first sample comes from a recorded interview with Dee Bradley Baker, the voice of Captain Rex – and the entire Clone Army – on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. (Also Perry the Platypus on Phineas and Ferb, Squilliam Fancyson on SpongeBob SquarePants and a ton of other voices on really cool cartoons.) We chatted in the press room at Star Wars Celebration V back in 2010, and in this two-minute clip, he talks a little about the things that inspired him as a kid, and about seeing The Empire Strikes Back for the first time.

There’s much more from that interview – as well as additional material not included in the print edition – published in the electronic version of Collect All 21!
