• Behind the New Sounds of the 'Star Wars' Blu-Ray

      The humming drone of a Jedi's lightsaber. The high-frequency pops of a Stormtrooper's laser blaster. The warbling bleeps and bloops of an R2 unit. All unmistakable sounds from the Star Wars series. In the more than 30 years since A New Hope's 1977 release, these and other iconic sound effects from George Lucas' classic science fiction franchise have transformed into what Ben Burtt, the series' sound designer, calls "audio folklore."





      Most fans will probably take more immediate notice of the newly high-def presentation in the recently released Star Wars Blu-ray set, but most aspects of the classic films have been reapproached and tweaked to take full advantage of modern-day home theater systems. Burtt worked alongside supervising sound editor Matt Wood in bringing the Blu-ray box set together, a process which both men discussed in separate interviews with Rolling Stone.

      What have you watched recently?

      But that is a quirk of binging episodes. If you see it once a week for ten weeks then nothing for 9 months you probably won't notice. Still though it
