Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
When R2-D2 is seen getting in to the escape pod and C-3P0 is running after him, in the distance can vaguely be made out old dial pilot and co-pilot control panels from a B-52-like cockpit. This is were the original Millennium Falcon concept was ... ...
Did you hear that? They shut down the main reactor. We'll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.
The blue panels on R2-D2 appear black when he is in the X-Wing with Luke in space. This is a blue screen shot which effectively makes R2's panels transparent. In the Special Edition, they left them as black but the newly added CGI X-Wing shots with R2-D2 are blue.
To compensate for the new special edition credits inserted in versions 1997 and beyond, a longer instrumental suite plays during the credits roll, integrating various themes from throughout the film.
