Cinematic History, Twice Over

"Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope" broke ground in movies that still rattles and drives the industry almost 40 years later. If you've not seen this film, it's a piece of cinematic brilliance that cannot be missed. The characters and story are rooted in the myths that exist across the cultures of the Earth, making the tale almost universally relatable. The acting, effects and music are perfect and remake the 1930's science fiction movie serial format in a way that is dramatic, poignant and funny in all the right ways. Movie records were broken, smashed and thrown out the window as lines of fans wrapped around streets to see the film again and again. The movie was nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards, and did win several Oscars, including Best Visual Effects and Best Original Score. Movies have never been the same. The Navajo dub of the film was screened in the southwestern United States in 2013. As the first major Hollywood film to be dubbed in the Navajo language, another milestone in cinema history has been achieved. Since the forced relocation of Native American people began, cultural traditions and languages have begun to disappear from daily life. While one might see this as "natural" when a culture or group is forced to assimilate into the colonized American structure, the loss of these elements is devastating to those who remember and treasure them as a part of an entire race of people's legacy. Younger generations take less interest in the Navajo language, and it is endangered to eventually go unspoken. This project, a collaboration between the Navajo Nation Museum and Lucasfilm, invites a younger audience to experience the Navajo language in an environment that isn't a classroom or lecture. The dubbing of a Star Wars film allows for viewers to have fun with a part of Navajo heritage and culture. It's exciting to wait and listen for the new voice of a beloved character. It teaches and supports the preservation of the words, which are incredibly descriptive, in an exciting way. There is no doubt that this cinematic landmark is a major achievement for the preservation of the Navajo language, and it is also a wonderful new way to experience one of the greatest movies ever made. As for the product itself, there is no HD version (blu-ray or digital copy) available, so this is the only format in which you can own this historic collaboration. The DVD is also a Walmart exclusive, so it cannot be found elsewhere. The film is presented with English, Spanish and Dine (Navajo) language options on the disc, all with 5.1 surround mixes, and the option for subtitles in English and Spanish is available. The opening crawl and end credits are in English. Following the end credits sequence, additional credits play to list the cast and production crew of the Navajo dub. There are no trailers, documentaries or commentaries on the disc. It would be nice to see some behind-the-scenes footage on the disc, but none was created by Fox or Lucasfilm. The Navajo Nation Museum released a brief featurette on the dubbing of the film online, and is viewable on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzWp81b3ENA It is also noteworthy to point out that, while you cannot purchase a blu-ray of "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope" in Navajo, you also will find the audio track of the Navajo dub on the original or newly re-released saga blu-ray box sets either. This is the only way to find the dub you're looking for. A cinematic and cultural EVENT!
