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

The bantha seen being mounted by tusken raiders after they spot Lukes speeder

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.

I felt bamboozled for a moment.

Based on C3PO's reactions, I always thought that R2-D2 was either very blunt about things or he was using profanity

Wasn't Warwick Davis R2D2? Or was that in the prequels?
User avatar #35 to #15 - kerfufflemachtwo (05/04/2014) [-]
Kenney has always been R2. Even though he's 79, he's still going to be R2 for the new Star Wars.

Warick was in Return of the Jedi as an Ewok. He was also in Phantom Menace as a pod racer. That's it.

Why do you call C-3PO "Threepio"? That's weird.
User avatar #14 to #9 - huntergriff (05/03/2014) [-]
...Because...3PO is the last 3 things in his name? Spelled out it would be threepio?

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.

There were no real locations used in Star Wars episode 2. It was all bluescreen. So I'm not sure why they went back to the desert.
User avatar #94 to #86 - huntergriff (05/04/2014) [-]
actually the naboo lakehouse, and the lars homestead was the only real set, if you notice, that actually is the same place from the original movie.
