10 Facts you didn’t know about Star Wars (10 Photos)

  • arglefargle

    Ugh, I'm getting sick of the troll facts gag.

  • Falthor

    #6 is completely inccorect… Darth Vader NEVER says "Luke I am Your Father" in the movie at ALL, not ONce… the actual quote is:

    Vader : Obi-wan never told you what happened to your father
    Skywalker : he told me enough, he told me you killed him
    Vader: No, I am your father.

    Don't believe me pull out your copy and check it.

    • DGW

      No idiot. The actor, who was not James Earl Jones (the voice of vader) had a completely different script. Anyone who has seen anything on starwars.know that.

      • Falthor

        yes but even the original script that the original actor read did not say "Luke i am your father…" those 5 words in that order were NEVER uttered in Empire Strikes back.

  • geauxtigers

    Why the fuck does the Chive post this bullshit every week? It's probably the dumbest thing yall do, besides letting that homo John take all those stupid pictures.

  • GrayDog

    What would have been a lot cooler was Geoge Lucas's second choice for Han Solo: Christopher Walken. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000686/bio

    #6 is incorrect

    The “fake” line was, “Obi-Wan is your father.” This is common nerd trivia.

  • Wogsamatta

    did you know that the incest scene of Luke kissing Lea was originally going to be Luke looking into a mirror while masturbating say "whos your daddy? im your daddy!"

    I don't know where "Bob" got his "facts," but they're almost completely all BS.

    #1 – I've seen the early scripts for Star Wars and I've not seen this, nor have I ever heard it before. Can't say it's untrue with 100% certainty, but I seriously doubt it.
    #2 – There's a really long list of people who 'almost got the part' of Han. The truth is that the parts of Han, Luke, and Leia were cast in trios. These trios auditioned together, and there was one "trio" who was a Han short. Someone suggested Ford, whom Lucas had worked with before, and he completed the last trio and they all got the part. There was no "First offered to Goldblum" or "Almost went to Walken."
    #3 – This leaves out the part that "Sith" was never mentioned in the first movie, and "Dark Lord of the Sith" was completely undefined until the prequels. So #3 is completely false.
    #4 – Based on the track record so far, I seriously doubt it.
    #5 – Think about it – is the Dalai Lama known for speaking backwards? No, he is not.
    #6 – Close. The line was "Obi-Wan is your father," and Mark Hamill knew the true twist, which he was told on the day of shooting so he could react appropriately. The Time-Travel Jedi premise is complete BS.
    #7 – They didn't film Empire in Australia.
    #8 – Like Han in #2, there's a long list of "almosts" for the role of Leia. This one can be considered possible since the verb used is "considered." They might have "considered" Raquelle Welch, too.
    #9 – This one makes me think that this whole list was put together in a poor attempt to be funny.
    #10 – Also false. Jedi was greenlit before Empire was done filming.

    Am I missing something about the nature of this post?

  • cestall

    Yeah, MOST of this list is total bullshit.

  • Gallus

    #7 – It's nice to be the boss, huh?

  • Hal

    Well I agree these are 10 things we didn’t know, cause there wrong.

    #3 Oh MAN, I'd have LOVED to see Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Rat Scabies and Stu West up there on the screen they'd have ROCKED at this. The movie would've been 10,000 times better.

  • its_forge

    Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnno. Lemons and limes are two distinct species.

  • Chris

    To the editor-
    Lucas didn't write The Empire Strikes Back.
    -Sincerely ,

  • Eric

    Gotta call bullshit on #10. Lucas owns all of the merchandising to all of the movies, and did right from the start.

    #8 fap fap fap

  • Honest Allice

    This article is as full of shit as the prequels are. never heard of anyone dying in the R2 'costume' or the windsurfing in Australia. It was reported a blizzard shut down filming for two weeks. If you're going to slam Lucas, you don't need to make things up. Just watch the prequels. They stink enough.

  • Paul

    we're being trolled.

  • mishmashers

    Fact 5 is wrong . Yoda was based on the current CEO of Gaga productions in Japan. We met the guy and dined with him, and his office was full of the associated star wars memrobillia. Lovely man and was a mate of George Lucas.

  • Halloweenghost

    98% of these are total BS for anyone who does not understand… you can't dub the word sith over damned seeing as they were not introduced as sith untill the phantom menace…

    George Lucas owns the merchandising rights to the toy lines, not the studio. He was a pioneer in that when he signed his directing contract he waived his fee in return for the merchandising, which Fox gave to him because they didn't think the movie would do well. As has been pointed out, the Ewoks were originally Wookies. 20th Century Fox does not make money off of the toys however, so they would have no reason to hold up production on that count.

    These comments made being utterly confused by all of these “facts” so worth it.

  • Dr. Evil

    All those in favor of a Chivettes in a Princess Leia metal bikini gallery, give me a thumbs up!

  • dorkheimervanjensen

    The truth only I know about trivia star wars do I.This one is strong with the shwartz.

  • Neil

    Damn it, I was looking forward to some actual facts that I might not know. This is all bullshit.
