    To celebrate Star Wars Day, the Apple YouTube channel has released a short documentary that goes deep into how the team at Skywalker Sound created the iconic sounds from Star Wars.

    Featuring interviews with several people that have been working at the company since George Lucas made the original trilogy, to younger people that began working for them in the last few years, the documentary explores how sound designers have recorded, edited, and mixed all kinds of different sounds from real life to make the galaxy far, far away feel like a real place.

    Here is the official synopsis:

    This is not the first documentary that has dived deep into the sounds of Star Wars, but we aren't tired yet of seeing how the geniuses at Skywalker Sound worked over the years on one of the most underrated aspects of Star Wars filmmaking. All three movies in the original trilogy were nominated for an Oscar in the category of Best Sound, and all three movies in the sequel trilogy were nominated for Best Sound Editing at the Oscars. Rogue One, The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi were also nominated for Best Sound Mixing. The Phantom Menace was nominated for (but, surprisingly, did not win) Best Sound in 2000.
