Did you guys know even Mark Hamill didn’t know the “I am your father” twist in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back? Here are a few more that makes Star Wars so much better than Star Trek.
George Lucas Got Creative With Stormtrooper Wardrobe In A New Hope
The budget for the original trilogy was very little compared to its competitor star Trek movies. So George Lucas and his costume designers sat down and decided where to do the trade-offs. If you look closely in A New Hope, most of Stormtrooper armor is held together by white gaffers tape.
In Solo, Alden Ehrenreich Sports a Scar That Closely Resembles Harrison Ford’s Scar from The Original Trilogy
That is Ford’s real life scar he got after a car accident. The detail is incredible.
Jabba The Hutt Is Credited As “Himself”
Jabba was basically a costume that had no actor in it. So the crew of Star Wars got a bit creative, crediting Jabba as “Himself”.
The Iconic Sound Of Lightsabers Is Actually An Error
In the First Star Wars movie our Immediately Recognizable Lightsaber Sound was a Mistake…While carrying a tape recorder with a Broken Mic Cable the Shielding had Come Off and the sound was Recorded as he Walked by a Television…the Sound is the Electrical Feedback from the Television’s Tube. from MovieDetails
The sound was recorded accidentally. When a tape recorder’s mic cable malfunctioned and shielding had come off, the sound was recorded as the recorder passed by a television. The Lightsaber sound is actually feedback from the TV’s cathode tube.
R2-D2 Wants To Be Involved
Like any other pet, R2-D2 loves Obi-Wan and wants to help him however he can. How adorable!
The Cameo Literally Everyone Missed
In The Rise Of Skywalker, it is the legendary music composer John Williams who is the bartender Kimji.
The Speeder Illusion
In Star Wars: A New Hope (1977), all the wide shots of Luke flying across Tatooine in his speeder were achieved by placing a mirror underneath a version of the prop with a motor and wheels. from MovieDetails
Bet you didn’t see that coming.
The Millennium Falcon Detail
Understandable since Chewie has a lot more fur. Although Han looks leads a way more unhygienic lifestyle in our opinion.
The Droid & Clones Resemble Their Creators
Not many were able to point out this minor detail. The Prequel trilogy, for all its flaws, is rife with such hidden gems only eagle eyed fans can notice.
The Story Of The Pink Droid
In “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (2015) a pink R2 unit can be seen on the resistance base with the designation R2-KT. The founder of the 501st fan organization created the droid to watch after his daughter “Katie” who had terminal brain cancer. The droid visits children’s hospitals to this day. from MovieDetails
All hail R2-KT, the hero we all deserve and need right now. We hope you are smiling Katie. The 501st legion states itself as – “an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate.”
Solo Has A secret Indiana Jones Reference
Hell yeah!! Can we plan a crossover now please!!!!
They Were Never Real, Just Pictures On A Glass Panel
This move saved thousands of dollars in production budget since they didn’t need to hire extras. Brilliant as heck.
The Docking Bay 94 Hidden Easter Egg
Bet you went back to watch that movie again, didn’t ya now.
The Droids Were The True Comic Relief Of Star wars
It’s a crying shame such scenes were nowhere to be found in the sequel trilogy. They were too busy investigating if The Force was a man or a woman.
Who Dropped The Parka
In Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Han drops his parka on the floor when he arrives at Starkiller base. When he leaves, Chewbacca hands it back to him, and he reacts with confusion. This part was improvised by Chewbacca’s actor Joonas Suotamo, who went off script, confusing Harrison Ford. from MovieDetails
The reaction says it all. Ford is taken aback.
Rogue One Corrected A Major Error From The Original Trilogy
Star Wars (1977) originally had Red and Blue Squadron attacking the Death Star, but blue conflicted with the blue screens, so it was changed to gold. In Rogue One (2016), Red, Gold and Blue squadron attack Scarif, where Blue Squadron is destroyed, leaving them unavailable for the events in Star Wars from MovieDetails
The Way They Play With Lighting Is Brilliant
In Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005), when Anakin and Obi-Wan speak for the last time as friends, Anakin is standing in the dark and Obi-Wan in the light, representing their status within the Force. from MovieDetails
Using lighting to add more depth to the plot and characters is not a new thing. But Star Wars did it the best.
