Bad Star Wars Questions... Boushh or Boushh?

Hiya, how's it goin'? So, I thought I'd see what the Star Wars questions you're embarrassed to ask! My starting question is... how do you pronounce Boushh? I usually say BOW-sh (like a bow before Mark Hamill), but I've been hearing a lot of people in videos say BOO-sh (as in Boo! A Madea Halloween), but I'm curious what you guys think about it? Thank you, I appreciate it!

  • It is pronounced "BOOsh", acording to the Return Of The Jedi radio drama, narrated by Anthony Daniels.

    Cool. I am curious how these questions come about... like, how on Earth did Lando mispronounce Han's name in Empire?!?!

    It really annoys me that everyone pronounces Leia as Lee-a until about halfway into Empire.

    I've always spoken bow-sh, but as in "arrow and bow".
  • I always said it Baw-sh.

    I’ve always pronounced it Boe-ash which has no logic or reason. I don't know why but it sticks.

    Mind you, if EA can call at-ats ‘ay-tee-ay-tees’ then I’m going to call Boushh Boe-ash :wink:

    (I also say Nee-yen numb)

    So if A. Daniels is to be believed then it is Leia's bush skin.....interesting concept, mind it was the 80's :D ;)

    Yeah, I don't get what the deal is with the inconsistency.

    Great... Now I have 2 more pronunciations to worry about! Also, I like calling AT-ATs, well, at-ats, just cause it's quicker.

    He's dead though! I'd hope Lando's respectful enough to pronounce his deceased friend's name correctly : /

  • It's Booosh. Always has been. I remember the buzz about the figure way back when Jedi first came out. Everyone at school called her Booosh.

    I'm so old...

    Cool! I wish I had friends like that when I was in Middle/High school... My Dad mentioned that two of his favorite Kenner figures were his Skiff Guard Lando and his Boushh Leia, it's nice to see they'll be playable in-game : )

  • I say it like boosh, like the Koosh ball, but they never said it in the movie, so everyone is correct.

    But yeah, they say Han both ways in the OT, so great question about Solo!
    "I'm HAN Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon" (said like dawn or prawn) but then in ESB Lando says, "There's still a chance to save HAN! (said like hand or sand)

    On that jar jar koosh ball, it says for ages 3 to 137 Lol
    "I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you!"

    That's in my brain now. I kinda hope that Lando still mispronounces his name in Solo as a running gag ; )

    I pronounce it as Bow-sh.

    I know, but I still prefer saying Bow-sh. Just like I say Kash-Ick instead of Kash-Eek.

    I've never heard anyone pronounce it Kash-Ick, weird.
    Speaking of which, did it drive anyone else crazy when Battlefront Youtubers would call Bespin... Bezbin, or Bee-spin?

    It's pronounced Kash-Ick in Knights of the Old Republic, and it stuck with me ever since I played the game.
