Star Wars: The Bad Batch star Dee Bradley Baker has shared an insight into what it was like playing all of Clone Force 99.
The voice acting legend admitted that the initial thought of having such a massive part in the new animated Star Wars show was "terrifying".
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Baker explained what the production was like and how similar it was to Clone Wars.
"Playing the Bad Batch is a whole other level of certain things that are familiar to me, in terms of performing the clones in Clone Wars – it's that but more so," he said. "It's definitely more alone time in the booth, there's less ensemble recording and more of me as the ensemble.
"Thankfully because of the terrific directing and writing that Brad Rau and Jennifer Corbett oversee in the sessions, it feels like we're telling a really great Star Wars story. It's just a little lonelier."
Baker went on to explain how he created a voice for each of the 99, admitting that the big responsibility was "kind of a fraught moment" at first.
He explained: "Well, when the characters were represented to me in the Clone Wars days, when George Lucas was still involved – and he was very much involved and hands-on during the Clone Wars – I don't think it was initially clear that I was going to voice all of the Bad Batch.
"I think they kind of threw it to me, because it logically made sense. These are variations of clones just amped up, but still clones.
"So there's still some reference there. It would make sense if I can push these in new ways. Initially, it's kind of terrifying to be given an assignment like this – because you don't know if you're ruining it, or if you're so far away from what a Clone is that it doesn't work anymore.
"It's an unusual assignment as a voice actor to carry the whole scene or the whole show – can you do that, does that actually work? So it was very gratifying to finally see when the Bad Batch arc at the end of Clone Wars came out, 'Oh, this actually does work, it really works and I really like it' – as someone who likes Clone Wars and Star Wars.
"And once we got back into the booth to do the standalone series, then it was a matter of reining in those character differentiations a little bit, getting a more refined lock on them. So that it feels very natural and flows very naturally."
