Some of my favorite Star Wars Rebels episodes were written by executive producer Greg Weisman, including “Breaking Ranks,” “Gathering Forces,” and “Call to Action.” Weisman is a longtime storyteller, having created and worked on incredible projects, such as Gargoyles and Young Justice.
Did you also know that he wrote a novel, Rain of the Ghosts? It’s the story of a young girl in the Caribbean who can see ghosts, but it’s not your usual story. It’s inspired by the pre-Columbian indigenous culture of the Caribbean area, making it a refreshing and intriguing tale.
What’s Greg up to lately? Well, he and a group of talented voice actors and composers have come together to record an AudioPlay for the first novel. Vanessa Marshall (Hera Syndulla), Steve Blum (Zeb Orrelios), Brent Spiner (Gall Trayvis), Bryton James (Zare Leonis), Jim Cummings (Hondo Ohnaka), and many more actors have already recorded the AudioPlay. Everything is recorded, but there is still more work to be done in the post-production/editing side of things.
That’s where you come in!
