    They were originally just really hairy midgets (no offense to the hairless midgets out there) but George got threats from the unions and had to go "costumed" on the little guys. That's the way I hear it anyways.

    Also, the original C3PO was just a fat girl named "Wanda" but Lucas went the droid route later. However he did keep her voice...



    I really don't offer anything to this thread do I???

    There could be some circular saw in there too. Ben Burtt mixes a bunch of sounds together to get his results.

    The high tension line is called a guy-wire, or guy-rope, but most people mispronounce it and call it a guide wire.

    Thanks for the Sidious update, Jedi paramedic !


    The big end battle of Endor was supposed to be Kashyyk, but it was too expensive t omake the village and Wookie suits, so George cut the Wookies in half, rearranged the letters a bit, and got Ewoks.

    I can't forgive him for that either.

    Actually, he had intended for the final battle in ROTJ to be wookies, but he had said in interviews that he had already established with Chewbacca that wookies were technologically advanced and he had wanted the Empire to be defeated by a primitive people, so he had to come up with a new species to fill that roll.

    Probably well known but all i got, blaster bolts for ANH were tracer rounds filmed at night on a Army live fire range.
