077 - Matthew Wood (General Grievous)


Dark Lord of the Typos


Matthew Wood is by career a Sound Editor. His early work as a game tester for LucasArts quickly moved him to editing roles on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. Since then he’s worked on numerous television and film projects, including Con Air, Armageddon, The 13th Warrior, Titan A.E.. Munich and Zoom. Along the way he worked on all three Star Wars prequels as a Supervising Sound Editor. He’s also appeared on film in several films playing various background characters. He’s also lent his talents to some Star Wars roles. In The Phantom Menace, he played Bib Fortuna (a role also played by Alan Ruscoe), and voiced podracer Ody Mandrell. In Attack of the Clones he voiced Magaloof and Seboca….the air-taxi driver and passenger the Jedi nearly collide with. Lastly, he voiced General Grievous in Revenge of the Sith….a role he is rumored to be reprising for the upcoming animated series.

Starting with Celebration III, Matthew Wood has been making the convention circuits, always friendly and signing for fans. I’ve heard little about through-the-mail results…positive or negative. However, Lucasfilm mail almost always gets to the correct person, as long as they still work with Lucasfilm. Hopefully some results will turn up in the near future.

WAHOOOOO!!!! I can't believe it, but after waiting over two years for a reply, I just received a signed MasterPix photo from Matt Wood today!!! He also signed the trading card I sent him, and added 5 cents postage because of postage increases over the years.

I got proof today not to give up on anyone! Sent letter via Lucasfilm Animation in Nicasio. :D

Good luck to everyone who requested - I anticipate he's working on a bunch of fan mail right now!!

wow. after 1.5 years i received my success from him. was sent to skywalker sound. return from, it seems, his own address. he also included his own cards that he signed to me as well.


Well I received an awesome shocker Yesterday! :eek: My Matthew Wood & Ben Burtt items were in my mailbox today after a 914 & 762 day wait!! :eek: I sent Matthew a request on December 15th 2005 & I asked if he could get Ben to sign one of the photos as well. :D Then I waited until May 16th 2006 & I sent another request, because I figured the first one got lost or something. So then I waited and waited some more then gave up hope of ever hearing from either of them. :( Then POOF! Both requests show up today in my first SASE!! :D One 8x10 photo was signed by Matt with a “Crush them!” quote & Ben had put “May the force of sound be with you!” on the second 8x10!! Matt had also personalized and signed the 4 ROTS cards that I had sent in my second request & had added the character name “General Grievous” to all of them!! :D They were all dated 6-7-08. I’m very happy that I finally got these back! :D The success is now the longest I’ve ever waited for a reply! :eek:

Thanks Ben & Matt!! :D The address I sent to is for the old ILM building, so I’m putting the new address instead. ;)
