Electronic Arts announced today that the Star Wars Battlefront II Play First Trial will include the original voiceovers from all three Star Wars trilogies. A total of six original voice actors will also lend their familiar voices to the characters known from Episodes I to VII in Star Wars Battlefront II. These include Susanna Bonaséwicz (Leia Organa), Reiner Schöne (Darth Vader), Hans-Georg Panczak (Luke Skywalker), Wolfgang Pampel (Han Solo), Tobias Meister (Darth Maul/Yoda) and Julien Haggége (Kylo Ren). Voice actress Anja Stadlober, who also has Hollywood experience, is also making her Star Wars debut as the voice of Star Wars Battlefront II protagonist Iden Versio.

The experienced voice team completes the authentic soundscape of Star Wars Battlefront II, which, thanks to effects that are true to the original and the legendary compositions by John Williams, captures the unmistakable Star Wars flair of the films.
Susanna Bonasewicz (Leia Organa)
With her clear and expressive voice, Susanna Bonaséwicz takes on the dubbing of unconventional female characters. In addition to her role as Princess Leia, she is also known as the voice of Fran Fine in “The Nanny” and as the voice actress for Bibi Blocksberg in the radio play series of the same name.
Reiner Schöne (Darth Vader)
Darth Vader’s cold and commanding tone of voice characterizes his character, as does his iconic armor and the sound of breathing on his mask. Responsible for this is Reiner Schöne, who, apart from the star wars, is the regular spokesman for Willem Dafoe, Tim Curry and Mickey Rourke.
Hans-Georg Panczak (Luke Skywalker)
In addition to Luke Skywalker, Hans-Georg Panczak has also voiced roles in the Hobbit trilogy and the Twilight films. He even stood in front of the camera himself for numerous television productions such as “Tatort”. Cartoon fans also recognize his voice: Panczak voices Waylon Smithers in The Simpsons and Glenn Quagmire in Family Guy.
Wolfgang Pampel (Han Solo)
As the voice actor for Harrison Ford, Wolfang Pampel has set two of the most legendary adventurers in film history to music, Han Solo and Indiana Jones. His rough yet charismatic voice gives Ford’s characters their typical nonchalance. He gained further notoriety as the voice of JR Ewing, Jr. on the cult series Dallas.
Tobias Meister (Darth Maul/Yoda)
With over 1,000 voice roles, including Brad Pitt’s regular, Tobias Meister has a diverse voice repertoire that includes Jack Black, Forest Whitaker and Robert Downey Jr. among others. In the Star Wars films he was heard as Darth Maul in Episode I and as Yoda in Episodes II and III.
Anja Stadlober (Iden Version)
Anja Stadlober gained her first experience as an actress in the children’s series “Schloss Einstein” at the end of the 1990s. As the voice actress for Iden Versio, she is the first to voice a character from the Star Wars universe.
From award-winning developers Motive Studios, DICE and Criterion Games, Star Wars Battlefront II is the most comprehensive Star Wars game to date for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Origin for PC. The new single-player campaign tells the story of Imperial space pilot Iden Versio, who must save the Empire from doom in its darkest hour. In the fight against the rebels, players will experience the Star Wars universe from a new perspective, meet well-known characters such as Luke Skywalker and embark on an epic journey of revenge, betrayal and redemption in the name of the Emperor.
In addition to the dramatic single-player story, Star Wars Battlefront II offers an extensive multiplayer mode in which up to 40 players clash in cinematic battles. At locations from all three Star Wars eras, you take on one of the four trooper classes, drive colossal vehicles like the MTT and slip into the role of different heroes like Yoda or Darth Maul. The new galactic space battles also allow players to reach for the stars in fast-paced space battles for the first time. Aboard one of the many starships, including TIE fighters, X-wings and hero ships like the Millenium Falcon, they engage in thrilling duels against other starfighters or attack the massive capital ships of their opponents.
Free content packs, live events, and challenges with special rewards will continue to add new content and activities to Star Wars Battlefront II.
