Remember those golden days when star wars was our only source of entertainment? Undoubtedly the childhood of millennial kids who made wishes of meeting Luke Skywalker or merely seeing a glimpse of Yoda every time they would see a shooting. Being nostalgic, getting our hands on our favorite star wars costumes still fascinates us the way it did back then.
Can you also relate to feeling superior to others upon knowing about a star wars character better if yes, then it is the right time you go back and relive your childhood at least for a few minutes while you read the following text.
Here are some of the secrets directly from the star wars sets we bet you didn’t know before today. Enjoy reading these and you can for sure express your gratitude to us later.
LUKE SKYWALKER WAS ON THE VERGE OF PLAYING
We bet you re-read the above line because you had never thought this could happen. Neither did we, but this is the truth whether or not you believe it. While working on the epic sci-fi adventure, George Lucas – the writer of star wars, devised his lead role as an 18-years old girl. Later, upon facing a shortage of female cast, another draft had to be written in which the lead, Starkiller, was a boy. We would have seen Luke in one of those Ladies Leather Jackets had the writer not devised another draft at that time.
YODA WAS TO BE CALLED BUFFY
Some sources revealed that Lucas wanted to name Yoda as Buffy. God knows what circumstances were there which changed the mind of writer and Yoda came in as Buffy. Well Buffy wasn’t a bad name at all? What do you think?
Another mind blowing fact that was very much the talk in star wars town recently was that the spiritual center of Jedi Orders i.e., Yoda was first planned as a monkey with green skin and cane. However, the plan was cancelled at the very moment since a monkey expert on the sets knew the nature of apes very well and told them how that monkey as Yoda will simply pull away the mask and ruin the sets.
HAN SOLO DIED IN THE ORIGNAL SCRIPT
We can bet that even those people who have never seen star wars are also cognizant of Han Solo. Every now and then, we come across those trendy Leather Jackets Online having Solo’s name or face engraved on them and people love to buy those no matter what. Well for the star wars’ followers, there is something that can make them curse Lucas. It was his initial plan to put Solo’s character to death in the original script of “Return Of The Jedi” but Harrison Ford carried it anyway until in 2010 when he left the sets saying he was done with his iconic character.
Among these, one of the most amazing things we bet you never knew about star wars is that it’s ever famous opening text solely took 3 hours to be filmed.
