Amazing news, we have.
The Navajo Nation has been given the green light from Lucasfilms to dub the original ‘Star Wars’ films into Diné. It will be the first major film to be dubbed in the language, and the first time ‘Star Wars’ has been dubbed into any Native American language. The Navajo Nation Museum and the Parks and Recreation Department are hoping to keep people speaking Diné and to encourage new speakers.
The film will debut at the Navajo Nation Fair in Window Rock, New Mexico on July 4th, and will be shown in theaters around New Mexico later in the year.
