Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The lightsaber sound effect is a combination of the hum of an idling 35mm movie projector and the feedback generated by passing a stripped microphone cable by a television.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Vader and the other two TIE Fighters are chasing after Luke and the other ships that are attempting to destroy the Death Star, more than once you can see a normal pair of eyes and eyebrows through the visors on Vader's mask. Vader's mask is supposed to be a very sophisticated piece of equipment that allows him to breathe and has large thick eye sensors that allows him to see. Also, when Vader is unmasked in Return of the Jedi, he has really small bloodshot eyes and no eyebrows.
  • This is the opening sentence for a 13-page treatment George Lucas wrote in 1972: "...the story of Mace Windu, a revered Jedi-bendu of Opuchi who was related to Usby C.J. Thape, a Padawaan learner to the famed Jedi..." George Lucas spent nearly three years rewriting before he completed the script for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Although most of that early script was ultimately unused, the character of Mace Windu and the term padawaan (with the spelling changed to padawan), both appear in the prequel trilogy. Mace Windu, of course, is one of the Jedi Council members, played by Samuel L. Jackson. And the term padawan is used to refer to Jedi apprentices.
  • The original teaser trailer was narrated by Malachi Throne. In the documentary Empire of Dreams: The Story of the 'Star Wars' Trilogy (2004) (TV), he is given a "special thanks" credit.
