When stormtroopers get shot and scream , they all have the same scream . That very same scream is in TPM . When the Naboo Fighter pilots get shot trying to get to their ships , they also scream that same scream . Why is that same scream used every time ?

That's Sound Designer Ben Burtt's signature scream. It has a name but I don't remember it right now. He includes it in every movie he works on, so it's not just Star Wars.

SCREAMING WILHELMA! That's the name you're looking for. :) It was the subjest of a classic moment not so long ago at the official site before they changed the layout. If memory serves me well it belongs to a german opera singer or something equally wierd.




eek!

Jargo, I believe you mean this Classic Moment from Nov 27th, 2000: www.starwars.com/episode-v/classic/2000/11/classic20001127.html
And it's "Wilhelm", not "Wilhelma", and not every trooper makes that sound, just some.

The troopers who get shot and scream like little girls usually have slight differences, like "AYEEE!!!!" vs. "EEEEE!!!", but they're all gonna sound similar because it's a horrible way to die and most folks would react to searing hot, melted armor tearing your flesh apart. :p

"I call it a 'Wilhelm' after a character in an old western who got an arrow in his leg and let out that scream."

Okay so my memory is going west! I never claimed to be an authority....... I was partly right though.:p

Oh yeah, you were totally on the right track, just that not every Stormie screamed it and it was the male version of the name.

I wish someone would put up audio files of these sounds. :D

I actually think it's great. Everytime you hear that sound you know where it's from. The same goes for every time you hear Utinni! You just know those sounds. :D

Awesome every Star Wars movie should have one.

There will be a bunch of Wilhelms belted out by the long gone forum members who try to return next month and find that we're all gone.

:eek:

Ben Burtt will be here to record them. :)
