    The origin of Skywalker Sound can be traced back to 1975, when George Lucas and Gary Kurtz hired Ben Burtt, a young graduate of the USC School of Cinema-Television. They were looking for a “director of sound,” someone who could imagine and implement a creative soundtrack to match the revolutionary visuals they planned for a low-budget science fiction adventure called "Star Wars".

    The company soon became Sprocket Systems, and shared space with Industrial Light & Magic in San Rafael, before moving up to the newly completed Skywalker Ranch in 1987.
