There's Going to Be a Navajo Translation of 'Star Wars' / Carrie Fisher Has A Trainer

From Time

How do you say “May the Force be with you” in Navajo?

“May the force be with you,” might translate into “may you walk with great power,” or “may you have the power within you,” Laura Tohe, a fluent Navajo speaker and English professor at Arizona State University, told Yahoo. The correct translation of the famous movie phrase matters, because the 1977 sci-fi classic film, Star Wars or – if the online English to Dine translator can be trusted – Sǫʼ Baaʼ, is being translated into the Navajo language.

The Navajo Nation Museum and Lucasfilm are working together to dub Star Wars: A New Hope into the Navajo native language of Diné bizaad, a language spoken by around 210,000 people. Manuelito Wheeler, the director of the Navajo Nation Museum who approached Lucasfilm with the idea, sees the project as an entertaining and educational to preserve the Navajo language. It’s also a way to engage younger members of the Navajo tribe and teach them their native tongue in a fun and captivating way. Actors who already speak the language can auditions for voice-over roles, including Luke, Leia, Han Solo and Darth Vader. Auditions are scheduled for May 3 and May 4 at the Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock, AZ.

Carrie Fisher hints at `Star Wars : Episode VII` role

Will actress Carrie Fisher slip into her Slave Leia outfit from “Return of the Jedi” for the new untitled “Star Wars: Episode VII” film?

Over the weekend, Fisher was a guest at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. She confirmed her return as Princess Leia Organa in Disney’s upcoming Star Wars film. Fans attending the event were hoping to get some juicy details on the new film, but Fisher didn’t give up very much. Though she did mention, she is going to be in shape for the role.

“I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before. I’m glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape. So I’m really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything.”
