Anyone else notice Zuckuss in the incineration room?
Yes, it's either a droid version of this alien species or the original Kenner action figure mixup wasn't one - and it is 4-LOM while the humanoid bounty hunter droid was Zuckuss.
The group standing before Vader is a bizarre array of galactic fortune
hunters There is Bossk, a slimy, tentacled monster with two huge,
bloodshot eyes in a soft baggy face; Zuckuss and Dengar, two battle-
scarred, mangy human types; IG-88, a battered, tarnished chrome war
droid; and Boba Fett, a man in a weapon-covered armored space suit.
^^^^^Holly Crap-There is the "Free Boba Fett Offer". I havent seen too many of those packages before.
I believe stun is set in Rogue a few times.
OK, could be. Having first seen R1 only a few days ago I was referring to the Lucas saga alone, sorry.
Vader orders the boarding party to set their weapons to stun in ESB.
Kallus at one point in his development was going to be a Chiss.
The dialogue is still in, but Han is actually responding to Chewie, not seeing Boba himself.
Chewie: "Rawr" (Something along the lines of "Look out, Boba Fett!")
Han: Boba Fett? Boba Fett! Where?
Never thought of that. You do have Han going in carbonite though (a kind of metaphorical death), and Vader killing some high ranking Imperial officers.
I love that detail. Mysterious.
And Anakin's theme gradually becoming Vader's.
Serious? Where is that.
Boba in AOTC? And the younglings during Order 66.
Interesting. Also TLJ has Luke's X-wing in the ocean.
Apparently TFA was going to open with a Star Destroyer wreck being transported in space to Jakku.
I've heard this. Maybe in ROTS it is because the monster is within? Lol
The Clone Wars 2008 movie was originally only supposed to air as a TV movie.
@HevyDevy, the track featuring the electric guitar is Zam the Assassin and the Chase Through Coruscant. At 2 points in the track, and electric guitar plays, but sadly both sections were unused in the final film.
It was originally written as four separate episodes, hence why the first 1/4 on Christophsis is pretty unrelated to the rest of the film.
Thank you for the positive comments about the thread! I've loved reading the replies.
A few more I've remembered from various sources:
The books in The Last Jedi are the first appearance of a book in a Star Wars film and possibly the first use of paper, but not sure about that.
In her reunion scene with Han in The Force Awakens, Leia only ever speaks two words: "same jacket", which feels pretty odd.
Darth Maul has as many lines in The Phantom Menace as Boba Fett has in the whole original trilogy. Jango Fett has more lines in AOTC than Boba does in the entire saga.
Beru speaks one word in the whole Prequel Trilogy - "hello".
One of the companies George tried to pitch Star Wars to was Disney.
I would argue that the happy landing of the InvisibIe Hand in ROTS qualifies. That ship
was wrecked beyond repair.
The name Mace Windu came from one of his first drafts of ANH.
Here's one that I figure everybody knows by now:
Originally, Threepio's voice was to be dubbed by another actor. Several voice artists were auditioned, including Mel Blanc. However, when voice artist/comedian/satirist Stan Freberg auditioned, he suggested to George Lucas that he should forget about changing Threepio's voice and stick with Anthony Daniels' own voice. And the rest is history...
(This may be apocryphal, but I'm sticking with the sage advice from "The Man who Shot Liberty Valance": When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.)
Durge from the original CW show was going to appear in TCW but was replaced by Cad Bane.
Special mention should go to Julian Glover for not only being in Star Wars, Indy and Doctor Who, but also the Quatermass franchise - Quatermass and the Pit (1967)
Both Canon Star Wars TV shows star a doctor from doctor who.
And James Bond ("For Your Eyes Only") and "Space:1999" ("Alpha Child").
Agreed. That ship did crash on Coruscant, but never really became a wreck. I'm sure they removed the remains pretty soon after the crash. A "wreck" to my understanding is something that has been left alone for a period of time, without anyone trying to clean up the scene. I'm thinking Titanic or Alien. Those ships have been there for decades (possibly centuries in Alien) without anyone to salvage anything. I imagine the Invisible Hand's wreck was taken care of the very same day, considering how efficiently Coruscant society seems to work.
Coruscant has a population of over a trillion people.
Not that surprising for a planet covered by a city.
...where the summit of the planet's tallest mountain is the center of the great plaza:
