    Hi! I thought I'd make this thread because I didn't see it anywhere, so, basically you just post star wars related surprising facts. The way it is also a game is because you post a surprising fact, and the next poster will first say whether or not they knew it before, and then post their own, and so on. The point of the game is pretty much to post facts that are rarely known.



    I'll start:

    One time when filming ROTS, George came in late for work because his son, Jett, was riding a scooter and waved back at someone who waved to him, causing him to fall when he went over a speed bump.

    Yes, One of the Dagobah scenes was filmed in his sw3imming pool, while it was under construction.

    Did you know that when filming the Throne room scene at the end of ANH, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford kept arguing about how fast they should be walking.

    No.

    Did you know that the person responsible for laminating the studio visitor passes for ROTJ messed up the batch and, instead of sending them to Pinewood studios, sent dozens of laminated cards with Roger Moore's stunt man's face from the film Octopussy to Elstree?
