Star Wars: Smuggler’s Gambit was recorded live at Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida, based on an original script by Kyle Newman and F.J. DeSanto. The audio extravaganza was directed by Newman (Fanboys) and produced by Jimmy “Mac” McInerney of, who whipped up over 100 sound effects and music cues, which were blasted live onstage alongside the actors to a packed audience of almost 2,000 diehard Star Wars fans!

Presented exclusively here on for the first time, this ”Final Mix” retains the spirit and excitement of the live event, including the audience’s enthusiastic reactions plus special enhancements that include additional original Star Wars sound effects, ambiance, and music.  This live performance was done without any full cast rehearsal and there were no “take twos” on any of the performances; it’s a true testament to the talents of the wonderful cast led by David Collins as Han Solo, along with Star Wars: The Clone Wars luminaries such as Sam Witwer, Tom Kane, Ashley Eckstein, Matt Lanter, Dee Bradley Baker, Matthew Wood, Clare Grant, and Boba Fett himself, Daniel Logan!
