Star Wars

Trivia: The huge alien skeleton that C-3PO passes in Tatooine was left in the desert by the crew. When they returned to the area in the year 2000 to make "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones", the skeleton was still there 23 years later.

Trivia: The film was almost cancelled on the first day when Tunisia experienced its worst desert storm in half a century, destroying most of the set.

Trivia: Originally Obi-Wan Kenobi survived the duel with Darth Vader and fled aboard the Millennium Falcon. But the character had very little to do with the rest of the film, and George Lucas decided that he should be killed off. Alec Guinness threatened to quit the production over the change, but Lucas convinced him that the change was better for the overall story.

Trivia: Actor Shane Rimmer has two parts in the film, at the start as one of the Rebel soldiers in the corridor and at the end as a Rebel technician, he's the one who asks Luke if he wants another R2 unit. No way is he the same character.

Trivia: Sir Alec Guinness was apparently not a fan of the Star Wars dialogue. A letter was found in 2016 that he wrote to his friend saying "New rubbish dialogue reaches me every other day on wadges of pink paper, and none of it makes my character clear or even bearable."

Trivia: At one point during production, George Lucas lost his voice; because he was so non-communicative anyway, none of the cast or crew knew about it for a number of days.

Other mistake: When the stormtroopers break into the control room, the stormtrooper on the right of the screen hits his head on the door frame. On the DVD release they've added a thump when he hits it. (01:18:55)
