A New Hope

and the
l ‘KL EST Fink‘
George Lucas was so sure the film would flop that instead of attending
the premiere, he went on holiday to Hawaii with his good friend Steven
Spielberg, where they came up with the idea for Raiders of the Lost Ark
The skeleton that Threepio passes belongs to a Tatooine creature, a Greater
Krayt Dragon. This artificial skeleton was left in the Tunisian desert after filming
and still lies there. During filming of Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clone
the site was visited by the crew and the skeleton was still there
In early drafts of the script, could speak standard English
and had a foul vocabulary. Although all of Artoo' s English speech
was removed, many of ' s reactions to it were left in
Mark Hamill held his breath for so long during the trash compactor scene that
he broke a blood vessel in his face. Subsequent shots are from one side only
Alec Guinness always recalled the experience of making the movie as a bad one
and consistently claimed that it was his idea to have his character killed in the
first film, so he "wouldn' t have to carry on saying these rubbish lines"
James Earl Jones and David Prowse, who play the
voice and body of Darth Vader, have never met
The bantha seen being mounted by tusken raiders after they spot Lukes speeder
was actually an Asian elephant dressed in a costume of fur and fake horns.
Filming the scene proved difficult, because the elephant was not accustomed
to the extreme heat of Death Valley, and kept removing the costume
Stunt doubles were not used for the scene in which Luke and Leia swing
to safety. Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill performed that stunt themselves
shooting it in just one take
one . one
Harrison Ford deliberately didn' t learn his lines for the intercom
conversation in the cell block, so it would sound spontaneous
Kenny Baker has said that often when the cast and crew broke for
lunch they would forget he was in the outfit leave him behind

left the skeleton in the desert, and some star wars nerds havent hauled ass to go get it as a major fandom piece?

yeah shipping it home would be a bitch but some geeks are just that obsessed theyd find a way,
#53 to #4 - enialis (05/04/2014) [-]
There's a still a whole Star Wars village over there. Are you gonna cruise 200 miles into the Sahara with a trailer?
User avatar #56 to #53 - konradkurze (05/04/2014) [-]
a village?

okay now i see SW nerds moving over there to live
#57 to #56 - enialis (05/04/2014) [-]
Yeah, freaking Tatooine. I visited it a couple years ago, it's just hut structures and people trying to sell you desert roses (actually one of the vendors tried to crack his mate's skull open with a desert rose because he had stolen a client)
Good times
User avatar #58 to #57 - konradkurze (05/04/2014) [-]
they still have that over there since the movie.....

thats like a 3d orgasm for the nerds
#126 to #58 - enialis (05/07/2014) [-]
oops some Star Wars fans are getting pissed at you
User avatar #127 to #126 - konradkurze (05/07/2014) [-]
as fat neckbeard star wars geeks do

stuffing their faces with junkfood brings on malnutrition-based anger issues
User avatar #20 to #4 - sedativechunk (05/04/2014) [-]
Honestly a true fan should leave it there. It's something that shouldn't be tampered with.
User avatar #22 to #20 - konradkurze (05/04/2014) [-]
well yeah, a 'true' fan would leave it there, possibly uncover it a bit if sand has piled up on it....but keep it there

but an obsessed fan....like some are..would want it for themselves
User avatar #65 to #22 - huntergriff ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
I personally think it should be put in a museum dedicated to cinema
User avatar #68 to #65 - konradkurze (05/04/2014) [-]
yeah but then transporting the village would be a problem
User avatar #69 to #68 - huntergriff ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
well obviously don't move the village...
User avatar #70 to #69 - konradkurze (05/04/2014) [-]
yeah, cant move the village but also how do you make the locals move the **** out of there to make it an official musuem
User avatar #71 to #70 - huntergriff ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
well not the damn village...like they could take the skeleton apart and hang it up in a museum dedicated to cinema, preferably somewhere in the US.
User avatar #73 to #71 - konradkurze (05/04/2014) [-]
well yeah, US has the biggest collection of geeks, and the whole star wars theme was started there so why not put the skeleton in the Smithsonian

the only other place would be in australia where theres so many geeks they made Jedi an actual religion

Depends on how big it is though. It may bee too big too move. They may need a crane to get it out.
User avatar #17 to #5 - pootismang (05/04/2014) [-]
Just use a wet mattress.
User avatar #6 to #5 - konradkurze (05/03/2014) [-]
they could pull it apart perhaps, and ship home in parts, then reassemble

User avatar #42 to #27 - WtfStrawberries (05/04/2014) [-]
you know who you remind me of?
Stan, in that episode where he turned ten and started acting like everything was completely ****** .
You're just one of those guys who's a downer to be around and/or talk to.
Different people find different things funny. Its a basic known fact, especially in funnyjunk. Just because you don't find something funny does not make the people who do stupid.
And you're happier not knowing this "useless **** "
and reading random facts on the internet is useful?
We all come here to waste time and do useless ****
You're doing the exact same thing.

3. This is the internet. You have to like what I like or you're a faggot.

Can someone explain me why was an actor necessary for R2D2?
User avatar #11 to #7 - ancientchaos (05/03/2014) [-]
fetish reasons, duh
User avatar #34 to #7 - kerfufflemachtwo (05/04/2014) [-]
Easier and cheaper than making an RC robot to use. Especially back then.
User avatar #12 to #7 - eddymolly (05/03/2014) [-]
Because remote control was **** back then
User avatar #91 to #12 - stupro (05/04/2014) [-]
I see... And why was it necessary 10 years ago and it will be necessary in the next few years?
User avatar #111 to #91 - eddymolly (05/04/2014) [-]
Well its probably cheaper, I can't imagine Kenny Baker costs a fortune to hire, he's not exactly top A list. Getting someone to build and maintain a remote control version that can do all the things a person can though (all the opening flaps and moving parts etc) would probably cost more.

Course, then there's the fact he has been in all the others, so probably wants to do it anyhow

I felt bamboozled for a moment.
#110 to #84 - darkroro (05/04/2014) [-]
I googled bamboozled and what is this
User avatar #10 - XxElJuegoxX (05/03/2014) [-]
Based on C3PO's reactions, I always thought that R2-D2 was either very blunt about things or he was using profanity
#85 - neoexdeath ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
Hey! Check out this FINE ass bitch getting all up in my holodisk port! Man, I bet she ***** like a Death Star ventilation shaft. Tight, small, but if you get it in just right, that bitch ******* EXPLODES!

Its how it is in the script R2 is artoo
User avatar #72 to #62 - poyuma (05/04/2014) [-]
That would make sense, great OC by the way <3
User avatar #2 - huntergriff ONLINE (05/03/2014) [-]
also the picture where you see luke look into the lightsaber with the caption "Given the worlds most dangerous weapon points directly at face" is never actually in the movie...it's from a behind the scenes production shot.

Slight Weapons Malfunction | Robot Chicken | Adult Swim Very relevant for #10
User avatar #8 to #3 - Tenkan (05/03/2014) [-]
I've seen many Star Wars parodies in my day and I think Robot Chicken's is the funniest.
User avatar #16 - electriccherry (05/04/2014) [-]
I think the krayt dragon was in the first KOTOR
correct me if im wrong
#109 to #16 - anon (05/04/2014) [-]
Krayt Dragons are in tons of Star Wars games. That particular skeleton isn't from anything other than just a random Krayt dragon dying.
User avatar #37 to #16 - theasguard (05/04/2014) [-]
You are correct.
User avatar #63 to #16 - HAMMATIMEZ ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
Yeah, you blow it up with mines with the Twi'Lek hunter that was walking around.

May the 4th be with you

its national starwars day btw
#93 to #83 - spaghettiprophet (05/04/2014) [-]
Beat me to it
User avatar #77 - olias (05/04/2014) [-]
In a millennia that skeleton is going to **** with future paleontologists so hard.
User avatar #78 to #77 - psychadelicace [OP]ONLINE (05/04/2014) [-]
Dude i was thinking the exact same thing
User avatar #40 - captinchikin (05/04/2014) [-]
I was thinking that if the Krayt Dragon stays there for hundreds, maybe even thousands of years, people would at think it was a skeleton of an ancient animal when coming across it. But Star Wars is the kind of thing that will always be around, the story will remain until the end of humanity.
User avatar #74 to #40 - assdoreponyfucker (05/04/2014) [-]
people would quickly find out that the material of the bones is fake, whatever the material it may be, plastic or whatnot. Its not that hard to touch it and tell
User avatar #13 - fizzor (05/03/2014) [-]
The Alec Guinness one made me laugh like mad for some reason.
#66 to #13 - bazda (05/04/2014) [-]
It isn't true, just so you know.
User avatar #18 to #13 - reican (05/04/2014) [-]
since he would have to come back as a spirit in the next movies?
#61 to #18 - fareastbrainseer (05/04/2014) [-]
For me, it's that he's a great Shakespearean actor complaining about doing mediocre George-Lucas-written dialogue.
User avatar #97 - hellomynameisbill (05/04/2014) [-]
I just watched the family guy star wars parodies, and I can honestly say that if R2D2's lines were from the voice of an aggressively sarcastic and sassy black man, the movies would've been amazing.

I need more of this. sauces please.
#64 to #46 - bazda (05/04/2014) [-]
The majority of these are erroneous. If you want to learn about how the movies were actually made, look up the documentary "Empire of Dreams" on youtube. It's like 2.5 hours long, but it is absolutely fantastic. It will give you a whole new appreciation for the movies, that's for sure.
#9 - anon (05/03/2014) [-]
Why do you call C-3PO "Threepio"? That's weird.
User avatar #14 to #9 - huntergriff ONLINE (05/03/2014) [-]
...Because...3PO is the last 3 things in his name? Spelled out it would be threepio?
