David Acord, the supervising sound editor on The Force Awakens has revealed that there is a visual and audio nod to Raiders Of The Lost Ark in The Force Awakens see his quotes below:
I think my favourite thing here is the slowed down kitten meow. But that's just me...
When Jeremy and I went to see The Force Awakens in IMAX with Steven and Andy (from Movie Geeks Film News) he mentioned to me that he thought he heard a whip crack from Raiders during the Rathtar scene. he said that when the tentacles move they crack like Indy's whip. I haven't had a chance to see the movie again since but I will certainly spend my next viewing looking for more Easter eggs like this.
Wjhat about you, have you found any interesting references in The Force Awakens? Is there a sound effect of visual reference no one else has noticed and you want to break the story here? Let us know in the comments or via email at TalkStarWarsINFO@gmail.com.
