Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

Anyone who is launched unexpectadly from their feet into a giant skiff wall would make some sort of scream... I mean it's not like Boba accepts death easily. He does not want to die, and he is only humanoid.

true and it does add a bit of humour

Having all of a sudden bursting off with no control I'd scream too. He isn't dead though.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

I know he is not dead, I wouldn't be much of a Fett fan if I thought he was... I was only saying that he did not want to accept it, which is part of the reason he escaped.

Ya I know I just like saying that.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

I never did like that scream, I always expected something more masculine.

Although it did make me laugh when I recently rewatched ROTJ.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

My friend's theory is that that whole action sequence is an homage to the Saturday-morning T.V. action shows and cartoons of the 60's and 70's. Hence the cartoony way Fett is (supposedly) killed, and the outrageous scream that he utters as he soars off.  It's supposed to funny, the way it is when a villian goes down in an old Batman episode or the like.

A lot of stormtroopers make a similar scream when shot down. What comes to mind is one on that bridge in Episode IV.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

It is a commonly used scream; the Whitgreen (I think that that is the name) scream.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Actually, I think it's called the Wilhem scream, or something along those lines.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

Yes, you are correct. Whitgreen provided the voice for Boba. I was pretty sure that it was not Whitgreen, but I could not think of the actual name.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

I believe this scream was used in everyone of the Star Wars movies and you can find it in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers during the Battle of Helms Deep.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

I have heard that scream in numerous films.

I'm smiling because they havn't found the bodies yet. :)

They had no clue Boba was going to be as popular as he is, so they had no reason to give him a dignified death (/epic, embarassing, and painfull accident). I think  they said on the commentary that he was originally going to have a fight with Lando.

Lando would've been toast.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

As Fairy Blood stated, he was not intended as a popular character, and Lando was a "good guy," ergo, Boba would have been toast.

Hmmm good point. If that had happened I would've cried. Han was lucky enough to beat Boba as it is, even if it is the same actor that's Indiana Jones. You know, I like to pretend Han is a descendent of Indiana Jones.

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

I think Jones would be a decendant of Han since it was a long time ago...
Speaking of screams of this sort though, last night I watched one of those crappy films you love to just make fun of, and all I did was point out every generic scream there was, which was about 3 every minute. Damn crapy indy horror films.

I always view Star Wars as an "alternate and possible future".

Re: What's with Boba Fett's scream?!

The Wilhelm scream is a classic, and is made in a lot of movies. I once saw an interview on tv when they said that they should have that scream in one more movie and then never use it again. And that movie was Revenge of the Sith. But I dont know for sure if it will be used again or not. It might be.

I agree with that.

I love it when they have over the top screams in films (especially in B movies big_smile )

*laughs*  That's funny.  At least they didn't have the "Pow!  Bam!  Kablam!" things when he got hit.  ;D
