In one of the action sequences ( i think it may be the warg attack) you can hear someone doing the classic "ooowwaaUuaaa!!" scream heard so often in EVERY star wars film.....

Am I the only one who caught this?

It's not exactly a "Star Wars" or "Stormtrooper" scream. It's a scream called the wilhelm, and has appeared in quite alot of movies. It's actually from a 1951 Warner Bros. Western called "Distant Drums", and has turned up in a lot of movies. Here's some more info. :)

When I noticed that in LOTR I burst out laughing :D! I think it's great that Peter J put it in :).

Yep, I noticed the Wilhelm too !






Also, the Delorean sounds like an X-Wing to me.

Yeah, that was one of the first things i caught. I immediately tapped my friend on the shoulder and did, "Dude, it's the Star wars and Indiana Jones scream!!!"

Later on, we talked about how PJ got Lucas and Spielberg to put it in there, and we came to the conclusion that if look in the movie, you'll prolly see Jedi's, Stormtroopers and Indiana Jones fighting alongside the Men/Elves at Helms deep. This was the "payment" so to speak. You put our yelp in there, you have to put some of our characters in there as well. Though, we have to prove this point. :D

what is that scream that they use all the time usually when someone is falling of something very tall. its much longer than willhem, id say this one is the standard for all movie screams.

i think its in broken arrow when that guy is kicked off the train and falls into that river valley. but thats the only time i can think of it

That longer scream always sounds like the scream from Dark Forces when you fall into a pit. Anyone else remember that from the game?

I know where it is In AOTC, (landing platform), but where is it in the other Star Wars movies?

And there is something else that I have noticed in alot of films, In TPM when Anakin is working on his Podracer with Jar Jar, all his friends come running through giggling, and I'm sure it's that same childrens giggle that I've heard in so many other films, am I right?

Star Wars
The Stormtrooper that falls into the chasm on the Death Star, before Luke and Leia swing across.

Star Wars: Holiday Special
The Imperial Officer that falls over the edge of Chewbacca's family treehouse screams the Wilhelm.

Empire Strikes Back
A rebel soldier screams when his laser gun dish is hit and explodes during the Hoth battle.

Chewie knocks a stormtrooper off the platform of the carbon freezing chamber (barely audible).

Return of the Jedi
One of Jabba's Guards screams the Wilhelm when he's slashed by Luke's lightsaber and falls into the Sarlacc pit.

Ben Burtt imitates the Wilhelm during his cameo, playing the Imperial Officer that is knocked over the ledge when Han Solo throws the charges at him in the Shield Bunker.

Phantom Menace
One of the Naboo Pilots screams the Wilhelm, when he shot by a battle droid in the Hanger.

No, it was pre-TT. But the "scream" had been defined and discussed. That's what I was getting at. :)

Not you and I personally. You, however, clearly were involved in a discussion with other board members :crazed:
