Original 'Star Wars' film to be translated into Navajo language

star wars saga

"Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope," will be translated into the native Navajo language, Dine. It will be the first major motion picture to be translated and then voiced-over in the language.

"It is one of the best movies of all time," said Manuelito Wheeler, director of the Navajo Nation Museum.

Navajo Nation Museum and the Parks and Recreation Department recently teamed up with Lucasfilm, which gave the tribe permission to dub the film. Lucasfilm produced the original movie in 1977, as well as the series that followed.

he Navajo Nation is the first Native American tribe to dub the film into its own language, though worldwide the movie has been shown in more than 50 other languages, Hale said.

The Dine version is scheduled to debut July 4 at the Navajo Nation Fair in Window Rock, and the tribe is hoping to show it in area theaters later in the year.

Whether people will be able to ever purchase a copy of it is not yet known.

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.

The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company.
