Polish Dubbing in Star Wars ?

Ok. I don't know much about polish dubbing,etc. But does the 2004 Star Wars Trilogy ( polish version) in fact have it dubbed?
I would really like to hear the film in the Polish language only. Not subtitles or English. Hopefully it doesn't have the
same actor reciting the language and English in the background. Which is rather annoying. Can someone confirm this?
I like this

But is this the 2004 version? Thanks all.

Dubbing practically doesn't exist at all in Poland, except for animated films for children. There is hardly any popular demand for dubbed live-action films in Poland.

But does the 2004 Star Wars Trilogy ( polish version) in fact have it dubbed?

Yes, it exists, and is for sale: merlin.pl/Star-Wars-Gwiezdne-wojny-kompletna-saga-czesci-I-VI_George-Lucas/browse/product/2,918857.html

Apparently, the dubbing was cringe-worthy, inept, amateurish and ridiculous, and aimed at children, at best. Every comment about it that I could find was EXREMELY negative, to say the least, and absolutely no one had a nice word to say about it. The translation was jarring, and the voices of the voice actors were distracting, and in some cases (Hans Solo, for instance), just plain ghastly. A question frequently asked is why they even bothered with dubbing in the first place.

Doing dubbing right is exceedingly expensive and requires a huge pool of very experienced translators, voice actors and technicians, which simply doesn't exist in Poland at all (except for animated films, but that's a different world altogether from films with live actors).

Bottom line, if you intend to watch the dubbed version for comic effect and guffaws, try to find a used version on Alegro, or download it from torrents or such. It's certainly not worth paying the full price for.
