I heard the line "And he was a good friend" as "Ani was a good friend."
Yes, I thought that's what Obi-Wan in particular was saying during the first couple of times I watched ANH.
I'll never get over how I thought Luke said, "He's kind of a strange, old Kermit," instead of, "a strange, old hermit."
I also thought that Obi-Wan severed the arm of Evazan, not Ponda Baba.
Luke was probably foreshadowing his meeting with Yoda.
I had thought the arm thing too, but I wouldn't think it's uncommon. We hear Evazan groaning in pain. I assume Obi-Wan like slashed him across the stomach or something, but it still gives the impression
first time watching star wars as a young kid i thought it was dark vader instead of darth until my cousin told me
Luke's face! They did a good job on that video.
Not exactly a Star Wars misconception.....more like a real life misconception. I used to think comlinks actually existed.
I thought when Alderaan was blown up they were actually blowing up the half-moon in the night sky.
When Obi-wan and Vader were fighting I thought there were more lines said than just "your powers are weak old man!" like Vader said something else possibly praising Obi-wan that wasn't there.
I was scared crapless when Porkins and Red Leader went down. Like hearing someone die in an airplane crash. I'd thought they all went down like that except Luke.
For some reason right before and when Yoda topples over, I thought Luke was exclaiming "God!" but he never said it. I also thought Yoda was telling Luke to pray and it was
the work of god that the rocks started floating..
I do remember I was scared crapless when the scenes would change from yoda on dagobah to han/leia in asteroids or cloud city. For some reason yoda was scary at times,
or there was some kind of witchcraft or demonic posession in the woods/swamp.
When they showed Luke's hand being replaced, I thought the high tech to do so was possible if one could pay millions for a new hand.
Jabba slobbering the twilek girl almost felt like a rape scene as a kid. Also scary was dumping the twilek down the chute. Like ROTJ suddenly became a horror movie dropping down
torture chutes and jabba's home being like trapped in a hellhole of deformed beings/turned off by twileks big time then, and such.
thought Leia was pretty cruel choking Jabba like that. It was also traumatizing for a kid to see a woman like that. Later on the only similar
scene that was as initially disturbing of women depicting hateful violence was that "i spit on your grave" movie scene. Brought Leia down a lot in my eyes then.
I thought Boba Fett's rocket pack was broken or an antique because he couldn't fly around in it for long.
When McDiarmid changed his voice to friendly-like sly, I thought it was a different person like the emperor could change his face like a mask or something.
I suppose the stupidest misconception I had was that Luke was using Obi-Wan's lightsaber in TESB. I forgot that Obi-Wan had given him his father's. It was because the blades were both blue. Lol. I kept wondering how Luke got the lightsaber after Vader's duel with Obi-Wan. It didn't help that, as a child, I did not watch TESB for over a year after my first viewing. I would watch ANH and ROTJ and skip TESB, given how horrified I as to see Vader sever Luke's hand.
This is going to sound odd, but due to my synesthesia, I was dyslexic with sounds and had difficulty spelling before I was thirteen, since I'm an extremely visual learner. So, when Palpatine says, "...your insignificant Rebellion," in ROTJ, I thought he said, "...your insignificant Rebinyon." Ridiculous, I know. And then I rewatched the CT, I thought that people were saying Rebinyon instead of Rebellion.
Not sure if I mentioned this yet. But there were a couple of instances that I had trouble understanding Yoda. I thought he said, "Take it to him I will!" as opposed to, "Take you to him I will." I thought he was saying that he was going to take Luke's flashlight to Yoda! And the very first time I watched ROTJ, I thought that Yoda said, "Not ready for the burger were you."
That all the equipment and soldiers that the Empire had was in the Death Star.
Can't recall if I ever posted this, but one of my biggest misconceptions after seeing ROTJ for the first time is that I thought Anakin was the same species as Admiral Ackbar (I didn't know the term Mon Calamari at the time.) I have no idea why I thought this. I just remember going to school the next day with a ROTJ picture book, and one of my friends asked me what Darth Vader looked like without his helmet. The book didn't have a picture of unmasked Vader (oddly), so I turned to a photo of Ackbar and said, "He looked just like this guy, but really pale." My friend said, "He's not human?" I said, "No, he's like some weird fish creature."
I thought the trilogy would always be my favorite. Never entered my mind that one day my taste in movies would mature, causing me to gain enjoyment out of the series in a different manner.
As a kid, I totally heard his name as "Dark Vader" instead of Darth.
This kind of retroactively became wrong with the addition of Mitchlorians, but as a kid, I always assumed that anyone could be a Jedi or Force sensitive with the right level of training, commitment, and belief in the Force. I felt like Han could have been a Jedi if certain aspects of his life were different BUT he didn't believe in the Force, was never trained, and was too self centered to ever become one with the Force (at least the Light side). But no, I was wrong. Mitichlorians!
I thought Han Solo was "Ham Solo"
The second death star was the damaged first death star, this lead me to think yavin and endor were the same planet. I have a bunch more, but i'm pretty sure i've posted in this thread before.
I thought the second Death Star was the first, as well, during my first two viewings.
I thought Darth Vader and Lord Vader were two different people. One had a fully black mask, one had those three silvery things around the "mouth". Not sure if I had even seen the movies at that point. Lol.
Sounds like a promotional sandwich.
Maybe we should copyright that as a trademark then sell it to Subway.
Also, I think the gravity of A New Hope was lessened by watching "Hardware Wars"
I know this is an old thread, but I have a few I'd like to share!
I used to think Admiral Ackbar was an Imperial Officer because his ship was white on the inside like a star destroyer, and that the "trap" was set by the rebels rather than the empire, who is defeated, and Ackbar would turn good for Force Awakens. Also a long time ago I thought the Millennium Falcon was bigger than the Death Star!
I thought Lando said to Han: "How're you doing, you old parrot?" instead of "pirate" in ESB.
When TPM came out, I thought Luke was Ani's dad. Timeline was too difficult for me to grasp.
I thought "Master Sifo-Dyas" was Qui-gon Jinn, because Obi said he was his old master.
When Yoda rounds the corner to fight Dooku in AOTC, when the shadow of him first appeared I was sure it was a clone trooper who'd come to save the day.
I thought TPM was just Star Wars 4, didn't realize at first there'd be two more movies.
*Just realized this was the Classic Trilogy forum. Unfortunately I can't really remember any misconceptions I had with the OT as a kid, just the PT. I guess I thought Luke and Leia would be a good couple, so much for my matchmaking skills at age 4.
So the misconceptions never cease. I keed. I keed.
My brother used to think that Jabba the Hutt was Obi-wan's father.
I used to wonder who "Peter Lay" was from when Greedo stops Han Solo and during the conversation he says something that sounds like "Some Peter Lay..."
