Discussion topics:

  • Voicing Luke Skywalker for the first Battlefront video game: the process and challenges.
  • How voice acting works in a film, how voice acting differs from physical acting, and what the ADR (Additional Dialogue Replacement) process is like.
  • Andy Serkis, Snoke vs. Golem vs. Stitch.
  • Chewbacca's different vocalizations.
  • Different interpretations of Holdo's Force theme teaser.
  • The qualities and cadences of Mark Hamill's voice, from young Luke to old Luke.
  • Our first impressions of Rose's theme.
  • Vocal placement and the head as a resonance chamber.
  • A demonstration of different accents, vocal placements, and voices (Obi-Wan, Luke, Yoda, Vader, etc).
  • Tips on exploring the limits of your own voice at home.

Note: While leitmotif names are completely up to interpretation, I use the names from Frank Lehman's Complete Catalogue of the Musical Themes of Star Wars. I find this resource to be the most careful, objective, well-organized, and up-to-date guide of its kind.
