Then we enter Part two: Behind the Sounds... Ben Burtt, the maker of all the Star Wars sounds explains us how he was able to create all the alien languages. With use of animal sounds, normal every day sounds, he is able to make a whole new language. For you who want to try to, there are enough tips of the great master of Star Wars sounds.
I find this a great book and fun to read. A little humor; some very interesting information. And I am taking this book with me if I am taking that vacation I got planned to Tatooine, Yavin 4 and some other places. This book really can be a life saver. Read it, learn languages, in other words learn to survive in the Star Wars galaxy.
And as the writer says: Goopta mo bossa!
