A "Behind the Mac" film posted to Apple's YouTube channel Friday unveiled a sneak peek into the workings of the Skywalker Sound studio.

The minute-long trailer featured the artists behind Skywalker Sound, the Lucasfilm division responsible for "Star Wars" sound effects. The entire film is set to debut on May 4.

The clip showed the producers involved in making various sound effects in the franchise, set to a melody that combined many of those chimes and dings.

This is just the latest in the "Behind the Mac" series chronicling professionals who integrated Mac computers into their workflows, which previously profiled Kendrick Lamar, and James Blake.

Apple initially launched the campaign in 2018, and one of the first artists profiled was singer-songwriter Grimes.
