Does the game miss these references?

Will these references be in the game?

1) 326-3827

2) THX 1138

3) The Wilhelm scream?

4) I've got a bad feeling about this!

5) 327

Am I missing anything else?

What are those references to? I've only ever heard of the Wilhelm scream, and they tend to use that when they cbf to get the voice actor back in and make him scream. Bowchikabowow.

The first one is a phone number, I think, George knows. The second one is George's first feature film THX-1138, and the third is the sound producer Ben Burtt's signature that he places as a joke in all of his films. Including all Star Wars films.

Show spoiler
Yeah, I know about the Wilhelm. I mean, what are they? Are they in like every film or something?

Also, don't forget to put [hidden] tags when you're posting pictures or vids. Makes it nice and tidy.

Yes, it's a signature of sorts, like the two numbers above.

It's more of an in-joke across the entire film industry, really, although Burtt was the one who started it after he rediscovered the sound. Tarantino uses it in all of his films, too.

The fourth one will probably be in there, but that's like wondering if "May the Force be with you" will be.

Ben Burtt discovered the "Wilhelm Scream" in some audio collection somewhere and brought it to the public limelight. Since then it's been used in A LOT of movies, with Ben Burtt deserving credit for finding it. It's fun to hear it, knowing it's an homage to Ben Burtt.

He even tried to make the Wilhelm Scream with his own voice in RotJ when Han knocks him into a pit in the Endor shield generator. :P

Can't say I know the "326-3827" reference though.

I'm kind of hoping that all four of them are in the game somewhere even in aurebesh. Although, I won't notice it, if it is in aurebesh.

It is now, you're right!

Haha, I've had speculation that it's an old phone number from USC, but George would have to confirm that.

Wasn't that the location of the trash compactor in Episode 4?? Luke tells 3po to turn off the compactors..

Beyond that.. I don't know..

That was the scene, yes, but it's still referring to something else. It's pretty clearly a phone number, since George is an American, and the ###-#### number is standard throughout the US.

Well.. Ok.. Have you called it?? I am not going to call it.. If I called it and George answered the phone.. I would die right here on the spot..

He never bothered to include the three digit area code, so I don't know. He lives in San Fransisco, but went to school at USC. Those two would be a starting place.

Plus, remember he may have moved since 1976 when they were filiming that scene, so you might get someone else, entirely. A very embarrassing situation for you, for sure.
