Star Wars in India: the Lines

The following is the second in a series of articles originally produced on GalaxyFarAway.com in the fall of 1999, coinciding with the release of Star Wars Episode I in India.

From the Lines
Hi! I (DevanJedi) just saw it in Hindi; and I must say, the dubbing was done well. I knew every line in English, so could tell the difference. It was well done; but for a bit of a heavy dose of  Hindi! Another problem was that the ‘profecy of the chosen one’ was reffered to as ’ chosen by God’! God? In Star Wars?


In English : Qui Gon: He is the chosen one.
In Hindi : Qui Gon : He has been sent by God.

The voices were well done; Jar Jar sounded like himself, as did Watto, Boss Nass, and the Neimoidians. It was cool; and I’ll be off to see it again soon!
