The 382-minute title is set to be released in a few days on April 30 and can be pre-ordered here. Check out the intro to his recent interview posted below and then take the supplied source link for the full read.
The official site gave us an exclusive listen to an excerpt from Dooku: Jedi Lost earlier this week.
If you’re an eBay seller of Count Dooku collectibles, there’s a good chance that Star Wars author Cavan Scott is one of your customers.
“I’ve bought a lot of merchandise in the last couple of weeks,” Scott, writer of the upcoming audio drama Dooku: Jedi Lost, tells StarWars.com with a laugh. “Some of it arrived the other day, and my wife just looked at the big box and went, ‘That’s another Dooku thing, isn’t it?’ ‘Yes. Yes it is.’”
For Scott, writing Dooku: Jedi Lost has made him a bigger fan of the character than he ever was before — and that’s because his story is not just about revealing Count Dooku’s past, but exploring how a mixture of personality and circumstance led to the villain he’d become.
“There has to be a reason he’s so shut down,” Scott says of the cold, manipulative Sith Lord. “And it can’t just be because he’s been turned by Darth Sidious.”
