We're closing in on two months since the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but fun new details about the film are still pouring in. Most recently, we've found out that Yoda almost made an appearance, there's a very subtle nod to Rey's parentage, and Kylo Ren's name actually makes a lot of sense. Speaking of Kylo Ren, a new interview from Nerdist is giving us more insight into the villain than ever before. The chat, with supervising sound editors Matthew Wood and David Acord, contains a sort of hilarious tidbit about one of the more terrifying components of Kylo Ren.
In one part of the interview, Acord reveals that the sound effect for Kylo's Force rumble — aka the sound we hear when he's using the powers of the Force — has a very unexpected origin. "The Kylo Ren Force rumble — the really chunky and animalistic rumble — is my cat's purring. It's heavily pitched and slowed version of my cat's purr that becomes Kylo Force rumble." It kind of just makes him seem like a big, harmless kitty, right?
