Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

Yautja, welcome to the boards!

You bring up a good point about Wingreen. To read a bit about everyone who has voiced Boba Fett, check out BFFC's Behind the Mask > Voices section.

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

I don't mind the scream, I find it funny.  But the voice change makes me angry beyond words.  I love Tem's voice, but not for Boba.  And why would Boba want anyone to hear his accent?  Wouldn't it give away the face that he is from Concord Dawn (well, Jango is), and take away his mystery?  I imagine it's the mystery that contributes to his intimidating image.  But anyway, I wish the Flanneled One would have a change of heart and give us the original movies on DVD as well, or at least the old Special Editions.

I like Boba's new voice, it fits in better with Jango being his father. His old voice was too rough for my likings.

But that's the whole problem.  If GL didn't ruin everything by introducing Jango, he wouldn't have to change his voice.  Even so, I always thought that his helmet had a voice changer or somthing, which would explain why it didn't sound like Jango's.

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

Exactly right Yautja.  In Young Jedi Knights, Nolaa Tarkona says that Fett uses a voice synthesizer to disguise his voice.

And thus if George was SMART he would of thought that a guy wearing complete armour and helment unlike the other hunters in the room not only wanted to protect himself, but keep himself a secret. If he just blurted out his real voice everywhere, it would spell trouble.

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

George only changed the voice to try and connect the two trilogies in subtle ways, along with "fixing" the emperor, Anakin's force-ghost, and other crud.

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

In other words, he wanted to make the new trilogy better by bringing the old trilogy down to its level.

Hardly. To bring it down to the PT's level would be to completely redo them. (But that would only bring the redone versions down, not the originals...) A few voice-changes and graphics updates do not make me like Star Wars less than I did before. If you like the old ones, just simply watch the old ones. Nothing is stopping you. The Original Trilogy is still exactly the same as it was before in that sense, but you have a few more options now.

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

It would have been a lot nicer if George had thrown in a few EU references or cameos.

I don't think that was a cemeo though... I think that is where Sing originated.

I was mortified. Both the scene with Rystall, and the new voice woke an anger inside me the likes of which have never been seen. Were the person who did that present, I very likely would've made his knees bend the wrong way, broken his spine, and made him look as I stepped on his throat, helpless to do anything.

That sounds very mean to do to some one.

I didn't say he succeeded in destroying the originals.  And yes, I am watching the originals, but keep in mind that once my VHS tapes go bad, there won't be any DVDs to replace them with.  Unless George has a change of heart, my unadulterated Star Wars viewing is on limited time.

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

Thats because they only last so long, not to mention a lot of viewings wear down the qualities fast. Not much you can do to keep them in good shape I'm afraid ><

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

I try to never watch my VHS versions, just so some day in the far future if I ever have kids I can show them the originals. And so I'll have them in years to come. I can watch the dvds fairly easily except for a spot or two I turn away or mute it, so I don't mind saving on my VHS versions.

If you want to explain how to do that, or find a link to a tutorial, I'm sure a lot of us would find it very helpful.

Re: Oh Why Did They Change His Voice???

I know you need a dvd-recorder-thingie, and I thought those were expensive? Or maybe they dropped a lot in price when I wasn't paying attention, they probably did.
