Who would’ve thought that the Star Wars franchise would run for as long as it has today when it started in 1977? The franchise now has 12 movies and has made around $10.34 million in box office revenue. Moreover, there are three other Star Wars movies set to release in 2022, 2024, and 2026. With a franchise this big, a number of actors have been a part of it. Some of the big names have delivered memorable performances. But not many celebrities like Star Wars as much as the fans. Check out this list of celebs who are against Disney‘s Star Wars.
The actor helped portray the role of Darth Vader. But David Prowse himself isn’t a fan of the later films. In a conversation with Hull Daily Mail, the actor revealed that he did not like Star Wars I, II, and III. He thinks they were bad movies and weren’t even close to the original movies. The original Star Wars had better plots and believable stories.
While playing the role of C-P30 throughout the franchise, Anthony Daniels never really liked his costume. He did not appreciate his role and complained about it to actor Alan Tudyk. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Tudyk recalled it. He told that the actor had told him that they would put screws in his head and closed it. He had to be on that thing.
Known for his role as ‘Obi-Wan’ Kenobi in the Star Wars franchise, Alec Guinness called the dialogues rubbish. The actor wrote a letter to Anne Kauffman and expressed his dismay for working for the franchise. He wrote, “New rubbish dialogue reaches me every other day on wadges of pink paper, and none of it makes my character clear or even bearable.”
The actor was the voice of Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Peter Serafinowicz later accused Jar Jar Binks, a character in the same movie, to be racist. While he was speaking on Richard Herring’s Leicester Theater Podcast, he said that it reminded him of watching some black and white movie on Channel 4 during the day, and someone’s in a black face. It was like they bought it for eight pounds and no one checked it. He called it the most racist film of the 20th century.
In the same film, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Terence Stamp played the role of Chancellor Valorum. The actor managed to get the job done quite well. But he said that he did not like working with the director, George Lucas. He did not appreciate his approach to his job. In a conversation with Empire Magazine, Stamp said, “I didn’t rate him that much as a director, really. I didn’t feel like he was a director of actors; he was more interested in stuff and effects. He didn’t interest me and I wouldn’t think I interested him.”
