The Sounds of Star Wars

The Sounds of Star Wars

A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away—the sounds of the Star Wars saga blasted its way into theaters.  From the clashing light-sabers, the voice of Darth Vader or the tweets and blips of R2D2—the films' sound is as compelling as the films' story and score.  J. W. Rinzler, author of The Sounds of Star Wars and executive editor at Lucasfilm Ltd, shares with Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert his remarkable book that captures not only how the sci-fi hit was created—but the distinct sounds that make the imaginary world feel so real.
