Matthew Wood, supervising sound editor for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has just written a long, detailed list of the voices in the background of the latest Star Wars movie. He writes:
Part of Skywalker Sound’s and John Williams’ job is to complement the visuals ofStar Wars and enhance the storytelling with a rich audio soundtrack. Just as our sound designers have to create sound effects for new weapons, vehicles, and ambiences, the dialogue department will turn to voice actors to populate these new worlds. And so it was with The Force Awakens.
You may have seen a section in the credits of The Force Awakens titled “Additional Voices,” with some familiar names listed. But who or what did all those familiar names play? I’m happy to finally reveal everyone below, running through the film chronologically.
It seems like a thankless job that is pretty important to making the world of the movie seem real. Notable examples of voice contributions include:
“BLAH!” — Matthew Wood and David Acord
“Blast ‘em!” — Matthew Wood
Stormtrooper (fights Finn with riot baton): “Traitor!” (fight efforts) — David Acord
“Hey!” — David Collins
“Ma’am.” — Meredith Salenger
“Hey!” — Nigel Godrich
Very distorted commands — Devon Libran and Sam Witwer
And of course, the Kevin Smith cameo you've probably heard about by now:
Stormtrooper (reacts to incoming Resistance fighters): “We have incoming at 28.6! Move!” — Kevin Smith
