‘The Force Awakens’ Aftermath: Kevin Smith’s Cameo Revealed, and more!

After the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, tons of celebrity cameos in the film were revealed. Daniel Craig was a stormtrooper, Simon Pegg was Unkar Plutt, and tons of voice cameos slowly leaked out as well. However, most cameos remained a mystery, including that of writer/director Kevin Smith.

That has now changed. Yesterday, Lucasfilm released a list of voice cameos from The Force Awakens, compiled by supervising sound editor Matthew Wood. Wood states:

You may have seen a section in the credits of The Force Awakens titled “Additional Voices,” with some familiar names listed. But who or what did all those familiar names play? I’m happy to finally reveal everyone below, running through the film chronologically. (There are also a couple of actor cameos in there that shall remain nameless (for now).)

The list is not collectively exhaustive, but it is pretty extensive, and it does reveal Smith’s cameo. It turns out Smith was a stormtrooper during the assault on Maz Kanata’s castle. His one line was in reaction to incoming Resistance fighters:

“We have incoming at 28.6! Move!”

The list also reveals a few lines by Tom Kane, the noted voice actor who provided both the opening narration and the voice of Yoda in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Wood closed out his remarks with some kind words for the actors listed, and gives credit to many more:

Finally, I just want to thank all the voice actors who contributed to the film, including but not limited to those listed below. There are several scenes with layers and layers of voices that we can’t credit individually, but they make sequences come alive, and the film would not be the same without them.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for release on December 16, 2016.
