11 strange moments in the Star Wars films


Star Wars has always been able to take itself not too seriously. 

If C3PO and R2 aren't arguing like an old married couple, Leia was sassing Luke for being a little bit short. 

So here are a few of the strange, odd and wonderful quirks of Star Wars:
  1. Han Solo grabs Princess Leia’s breasts in the middle of the Battle of Endor. He was perhaps checking she was still wearing this. Harrison Ford also pulled a similar movie on the Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back. The scoundrel...
  2. When Jango Fett gets into his ship after his fight with Obi-Wan in Attack of the Clones, he bangs his head on the open door. This was intentional and is a reference to a famous goof from the original movie where a cloned Stormtrooper accidentally bangs his head on a door (the clone being the descendant of Jango Fett and having inherited this character trait).
  3. The Holiday Special. What about that Space Porn Simulation eh? Oddly, things from the Special have influenced films such as Solo and The Mandalorian show! In Solo, Chewbacca's father's name is Attichitcuk, as it was in the Special. 
  4. Why in Jedi does Old Ben say, that boy is our last hope when he already knows that Leia is his brother and then Yoda has to spell it out to him? 
  5. When E.T. turns up in the Phantom Menace!
  6. When we learned that R2D2 could fly in Revenge of the Sith. What the heck?? That little trick could have been handy many times!
  7. When during the Battle of Hoth, the Rebels decided to flee the planet by flying directly into the path of the Imperial Fleet and Vader. Why do this when they could have gone off in any direction and they could have all split up? Weird battle strategy! Extra fun fact: The line 'the first transport is away!" was spoken by Mark Hamill.
  8. Darth Vader's black suit was actually inspired by Nazi uniforms.
  9. This strange thing nearly happened. The original Rogue squad had a giant green alien called Senna and a Lunka. They were paired as a duo but ultimately dropped - they did get as far as being designed - see the above concept art!
  10. In A New Hope, Leia was kept captive on the Death Star in prison cell number 2187. This was a deliberate choice as 2187 is the year that the George Lucas directed cult film THX 1138, was set.
  11. Yoda’s species has never been mentioned. In official records, he is simply an ‘unknown species’. He'll always be Kermit's ugly cousin to us.
