Trivia

After the Millennium Falcon is captured by the Death Star, Darth Vader sends a scanning crew aboard to search for any passengers, and says "I sense something... a presence I haven't felt since...", referring to his former master Obi-Wan Kenobi. At ... ...


Quotes

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


Goofs

During the Death Star battle, you hear: "Red 6, can you see Red 5?" and a voice seems to answer. This is after Tono Porkins, who was Red 6, has been destroyed. But there is a hectic space battle going on with tons of Rebel and Imperial ships - and as a result, tons of radio calls. The response was likely an irrelevant call that just happened to get picked up at an odd moment.


Crazy Credits

When first released theatrically, prior to the film, a generic screen reading in green letters "A Lucasfilm Limited Production" appeared. In all versions from the Special Edition onward, this is replaced with a more elaborate Lucasfilm logo that shines and glows.


Alternate Versions

In all theatrical versions, subtitles for alien languages appear at the bottom of the frame. In widescreen video releases, the subtitles are moved to the top of the lower black bar, so that they actually appear below the image without obstructing the picture. Long lines of dialogue, such as those during the Greedo scene, were originally given one long caption at the bottom of the screen. Due to the shorter space available on television screens, these captions were broken into two pieces. "Jabba put a price on your head so big every bounty hunter in the galaxy will be looking for you" was split into "Jabba put a price so big on your head..." followed by, "every bounty hunter in the galaxy will be looking for you."
