Trivia

While it was originally planned that C-3PO'S voice would be dubbed with a different actor, Anthony Daniels has gone on to voice the part in nearly every other incarnation of the character, including the radio dramatization and several animated series.


Quotes

C-3PO: Did you hear that? They shut down the main reactor. We'll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.


Goofs

When Luke is searching for the runaway R2D2, a rope can be seen dragging a droid that passes in the foreground from right to left.


Crazy Credits

The film has no opening credits. Instead, the first credits seen at the end of the film are presented in the order in which they would have otherwise been shown at the start. Although by the late 1990s it was commonplace for films to not have opening credits, in 1977 it was somewhat unusual for a major film to not have opening credits.


Alternate Versions

The "lost scenes" from this film, namely Luke's discovering the orbital Tantive-IV-Battle while working on a moisture vaporator; Luke storming into Station Tosche at Anchorhead to tell his friends, Fixer, Camie, and Biggs about the space battle he witnessed; and Luke's and Biggs' extended talk about Biggs' having been assigned to work on the starship Rand Ecliptic, and also confiding in Luke that he has made certain friends at the Imperial Academy who plan to join the Rebel Alliance on Tatooine reveal that one of Luke's friends, Camie, was played by (of early Eighties liaison fame). Sadly the scenes never made it into the movie and can only be seen on the "Behind the Magic" CD-ROM-discs.
