James Earl Jones, who has been dubbing the character “Dark Warrior” in the movie “Star Wars” series, can be regarded as a classic voice familiar to Star Wars fans, but he is now 91 years old and has recently made plans for the character’s future. The entertainment website Vanity Fair recently reported that Jones had signed a contract with Ukrainian start-up Respeecher to authorize the other party to use his voice for the dubbing of future works.
Respeecher uses existing sound files to replicate the voice of the voice actors, so he can dub the new work without the voice actors present. The new episode “Obi-Wan Kenobi” on the video streaming platform Disney+ is using Using this start-up technology, he dubbed Darth Vader with Jones’ voice copied by artificial intelligence. The production unit once expressed its intention to end the role of Darth Vader to Jones, but when the other party was willing to let Lucasfilm, which owns “Star Wars”, synthesize its voice with artificial intelligence, it immediately asked Respeecher to reproduce Jones’ voice 45 years ago.
Star Wars fans watching Obi-Wan Kenobi may find that Darth Vader sounds more like the early days than it did in 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker, thanks to Respeecher. Respeecher and LucasFilm have worked together in the past, including on The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, to create the voice of a young Luke Skywalker. The collaboration of actor Mark Hamill succeeded in reshaping the voice of the young Skywalker.
