2005 Halloween AudioCast from Star Wars.com

In 2005 the official Star Wars website released the “Star Wars Halloween Audiocast” which was an 18-minute audio recording of Star Wars sound effects and music meant to create a spooky, Halloween-esque atmosphere. Produced by Matthew Wood (who is also the voice of General Grevious) it includes new dialogue of the newest (at the time) villain in Star Wars thanks to Revenge of the Sith which came out the same year. The recording was available on StarWars.com for years but it has been removed. We are offering it here for Star Wars Halloween fans to enjoy; so turn the lights down low, light your jack 0’lantern of choice and prepare for some spookiness from a galaxy far, far away….
