PHOENIX (AP) — "Star Wars" fans in Phoenix will have a chance to experience a Native American take on "the Force."

The Heard Museum announced it will host a free screening Oct. 6 of the 1977 sci-fi flick, completely dubbed in Navajo.

Some of the cast members who provided the Navajo voices are expected to attend as well as translators.

This version of the film is expected to screen in various cities nationwide.

The Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock worked with Lucasfilm Ltd. to get the movie dubbed.

A team of five Navajo speakers spent 36 hours translating the script for "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope."

Seats for the screening are by reservation only. There will be a limit of four seats per reservation.
