The Millennium Falcon is the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. To create the unique sound of its fly-bys, Ben Burtt went to the US National Air Races in the Mojave Desert and recorded World War II-era racing planes flying directly overhead. The occasional thunderclap or lion's roar was also mixed in during the moment the Falcon passed the camera.

In 1977, when Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope hit theatres, moviegoers were blown away by a cinematic experience unlike anything they had seen-or heard-before. A young man named Ben Burtt was behind the revolutionary sound design. These effects are as fascinating in their origins as they are entertaining in their execution.

With more than 250 sound effects and based on exclusive interviews with Ben Burtt, The Sounds of Star Wars celebrates the galaxy like no other book. From the first films through the Prequel Trilogy and the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, this is the ultimate behind-the-scenes books for Star Wars fans of every generation.
