Star Wars: A New Hope’s wordless final scene relies on John Williams’ sweeping score to carry the triumphant moment. The Death Star is vanquished, the heroes have won, and everyone celebrates.

Video creators Auralnauts also added their own foley and vocal effects to compensate for the excised audio track, including a unique interpretation of Chewbacca’s howl.

Because he’s a goddamned monster, that’s why.
