Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope is the first major Hollywood film dubbed in the Navajo language. So far, this version of the movie has only been shown on or near the Navajo Nation. Many groups, not just Native American audiences, have expressed interest in seeing this iconic film with a new twist. The Navajo Nation Museum took the lead on this venture coordinating and fundraising until the movie was finished. In the end, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, and Deluxe joined the effort to help audiences experience the film in the Navajo language. The majority of funding came from within the Navajo Nation itself as the Parks and Recreation Department stepped up to the plate as the premiere sponsor. All of the recording was done locally at Native-owned Knifewing Studios in Gallup, NM.
As part of the arrangement with Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox, all screenings will be free; however seating is limited and on a first-come first served basis.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS FILM WILL NOT BE SUBTITLED.
