Have You Heard the George?

We might have lost the Wilhelm scream in this new era of Star Wars films, but we’ve potentially gained something even cooler. There’s a rumor floating about that a new scream has been used, starting with Rogue One, and that it may belong to George Lucas himself.

According to Cinema Blend, ABC News claims to have a source close to Star Wars that claims a scream recorded by George Lucas back in the 70s for American Graffiti. Sound designer Matthew Wood even confirmed that in 2018, they would call the effect “the George.”

It hasn’t been revealed where in the films this sound can be found, but hopefully we get some clues from Lucasfilm in the near future. Time to boot up Disney+ and see if we can’t catch this scream in action!
