Walter Murch (born July 12, 1943) is an American film editor and sound designer. He was the director of The Clone Wars's fourth season's eighth episode, "The General".

Murch had been an associate of Star Wars creator George Lucas since the latter's days at American Zoetrope. He worked on Lucas's THX 1138 and American Graffiti and edited the abandoned Lucas project Apocalypse Now as well as the Lucas/Francis Ford Coppola/Disney collaboration Captain EO. In the mid 1980s, Disney fired Murch midway through production on Return to Oz, which was his directorial debut. Lucas and Coppola persuaded the studio to allow him to finish the film.
