The Sound Of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has wowed audiences across the globe and grossed in excess of one billion dollars at the box office, and it’s being hailed by many as the best Star Wars movie since The Empire Strikes Back. Its gritty, war film aesthetic is a real departure for the franchise, and this realism is born out in the sound design.

We had the great pleasure of visiting the iconic Skywalker Sound in Northern California to talk to Supervising Sound Editors Christopher Scarabosio and Matthew Wood about world creation, making sci-fi weapons sound realistic, and how some unexpected sampling brought K-2SO — the film’s sardonic and loveable droid — to life!

We also discover the secrets of Foley artist Ronni Brown and Foley Mixer Frank Aglieri-Rinella who reveal how they made the Rogue One stormtroopers sound more menacing.

To follow along with the movie, you can order Rogue One in Digital HD and Blu-ray/DVD here:
