Product description

Any Star Wars fan can mimic Darth Vader's voice or Chewbacca's roar with ease. But how many of them would be able to identify the lion's roar used in the sound of the Millenium Falcon's engine? In this aurally astonishing and visually engaging book, New York Times best-selling author J. W. Rinzler reveals the illuminating history of the sounds that make the Star Wars universe so believable, as recounted by their creator, legendary sound designer Ben Burtt. An attached sound module with an exterior speaker and headphone jack lets readers listen to more than 250 unique sound effects, and more than 300 photographs illustrate the epic’s many memorable scenes. From the first films to the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, The Sounds of Star Wars is Star Wars as you've never heard it before. J. W. Rinzler, executive editor at Lucasfilm Ltd., is the author of numerous books, including the New York Times bestseller The Making of Star Wars. Ben Burtt is a four-time Academy Award-winning sound designer. He worked on all of the Star Wars live-action films, as well as the Indiana Jones trilogy, E.T., WALL•E, and Star Trek (2009) among many, many others.
