STAR WARS TRIVIA

1) Which Star Wars movie was filmed entirely in the studio?


Unlike the previous Star Wars films, which were shot both on soundstages and on location, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith was filmed entirely in the studio. The only location work was a background plate shot during the production of Episode II.

2) Which of the three main heroes (Luke, Leia, and Han Solo) in the first Star Wars trilogy refused to sign a three picture deal?


Having Han Solo frozen in carbonite was (at least in part) due to the fact that they were not sure that Harrison Ford would return for a third film. When the original Star Wars was made Carrie Fisher and Mark Hammill were signed for a three picture deal, but Ford refused.

3) What color is Mace Windu's lightsaber?


There is no mystical significance in the color of Mace Windu's lightsaber. Samuel L. Jackson, after a joking conversation with stunt coordinator Nick Gillard, asked Lucas if he could have a purple lightsaber and Lucas agreed. In an interview on UK TV, Jackson said he "thought it would be cool".

4) "The Star Wars Holiday Special" marked the first appearance of what Star Wars character?


"The Star Wars Holiday Special" marked the first appearance of the character Boba Fett, in an animated segment of the show. This special has never been released on video -- however, bootleg home-recorded videos have been circulating for years and are now all over the internet. George Lucas once remarked at an Australian convention that "If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every bootlegged copy of that program and smash it."

5) What actor pulled out of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith when he discovered that non-union actors were being used in the film?


Gary Oldman had agreed to be the voice of General Grievous, but pulled out of the film because it was being made using actors who were not part of the Screen Actor's Guild, of which Oldman is a member.

6) Who is the only non Jedi in the original Star Wars trilogy to use a lightsaber?


Han Solo is the only non Jedi in the original Star Wars trilogy to ever use the lightsaber when he cuts open the tauntaun's belly in The Empire Strikes Back.

7) The animators who brought the AT-AT Imperial Walkers to life in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back based their movements on what kind of animal?


For realism, the animators who brought the AT-AT Imperial walkers to life analyzed frame-by-frame footage of elephants walking.

8) What character did George Lucas once consider making a midget?


At one point, George Lucas planned for the character of Luke Skywalker, along with his aunt and uncle, to be midgets. According to some sources, Leia's line when Luke rescues her ("Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?") is a remnant of this story idea.

9) In Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, the growls and sounds of the Rancor in Jabba's Palace were actually made by what animal?


The growls and sounds of the Rancor in Jabba's Palace were actually remixed from an audio recording of an aggressive dachshund.

10) What is the first Star Wars film in which Yoda is completely computer-generated?


Episode II: Attack of the Clones is the first Star Wars film in which Yoda (Frank Oz) is entirely computer-generated. Oz was only required on the set to help the actors by providing the voice of Yoda.
