15 Details You May Have Not Noticed In the Star Wars


Hey, Force seekers!

How many of the Star Wars movies have you watched already? 

The first George Lucas Star Wars film was released in 1977. Since then, there have been a total of 11 theatrical Star Wars movies and 7 Disney+ series.

For someone who’s new to the fandom, the Star Wars universe and some of its fancy terms can be confusing. However, other fans may be proud to know various facts about the franchise and keep themselves up to date. 

But can you really be proud of yourself if you’ve never noticed these 15 facts from the movie/series? Time to prove Star Wars fans!

  • George Lucas Plays a Small Role in Revenge of the Sith

Did you know that George Lucas, the filmmaker, plays a small in the Revenge of the Sith?

It's true. Gorge plays a non-speaking role in the Revenge of the Sith. Named Notluwiski Papanoida, he was a Pantoran senator in an episode of The Clone Wars. It was an infamous scene: ' Do you know the tale of Darth Plagueis?’  when Anakin meets Palpatine. 

He becomes Supreme Chairman of the Pantoran Assembly during the Clone Wars. The coolest thing is George did his cameo with his daughter, Katie Lucas. 

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi's Change in Lightsaber Form

Kenobi was originally a master at Form IV(Ataru), trained by his master Qui-Gon Jinn in the Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). 

But after his master’s death, he realizes Ataru's lack of defensive capabilities and changes his fighting style, which means fans see Obi-Wan Kenobi with lightsabers differently.

In Episode 2: Attack of the Clones(2002), Obi-Wan takes a different approach to battle while fighting with Jango Fett on Geonosis.

  • Timing Difference for Creating Death Star 

At the end of the Revenge of the Sith, the construction of a newly born Death Star is witnessed. 

Some fans find the creation time of the first and second Death Stars strange. The first took nearly 20 years, whereas the second appeared only after four years. 

  • Finn’s Stormtrooper Codedname FN-2187 is the Same as Leis’s Cell Number

In Star Wars: A New Hope, Princess Leia is kept in a cell within the Death Star. Her cell number was 2187, which was inspired by Finn’s Stormtrooper codename FN-2187. 

  • Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan's Communicators Aren’t Real (Actually Shaving Razors)

Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi are seen communicating over props in the Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999).

If you could have noticed clearly, it’s not actually a communicating device. It’s a lady razor with futuristic gizmos and doohickeys glued to it. 

  • Daniel Craig Plays a Cameo as a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens

Popularly known for playing Bond in the James Bond franchise and detective Benoit Blanc in Knives Out I & II. Daniel Craig’s cameo as a Stormtrooper FN-1824 in The Force Awakens is a little-known trivia topic.

Many fans wouldn’t have known about this fact unless heard. But now you know this!

  • One of the Stormtroopers has a Piece of Tape in his Armor

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Did you know? One of the stormtroopers who brings Princess Leia to Darth Vader in A New Hope has a piece of tape holding his armor together <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Star Wars Holocron (@sw_holocron) <a href="">July 7, 2020</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

In a scene in A New Hope, one of the Stormtroopers who brings Princess Leia to Darth Vader has a small piece of white tape holding his armor together. 

  • Nobody said Evoks a Single Time in the Entire Star Wars

If you’ve seen Star Wars, especially the Return of the Jedi, you must have seen a small bear-like forest moon species of Endor. They are a popular species in the Star Wars universe.

But not even a single time was the word ‘Evok’ spoken out loud throughout the Star Wars. Fans who read the novel would have found it bizarre that the script has the word ‘Evok’, which wasn’t recited once in any of the live-action movies. 

  • Luke’s X-wing Recycled in a Metal Door

 In The Last Jedi, a piece of Luke's X-wing drops into the water. The same piece of the ship was used to make the metal door on Luke’s hut. When you rewatch the Movie, you’ll notice the same paint on his wing as on his hut on Ahch-To.

  • Carrie Fisher Brings Her Beloved Dog Gary on Screen 

Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher, had a bulldog named Gary who played a cameo in The Last Jedi. 

In one of the scenes of the Space Opera’s film, an alien in the casino is holding a dog-like creature who’s no other than Gray.

  • A Stormtrooper Hits Their Head on a Door in A New Hope

It’s one of those hilarious scenes that’s hard to notice, but when you actually catch it on screen, you die laughing. One of the Stormtroopers hits their head just before finding C-3PO, which you may have missed in the Star Wars: A New Hope. 

When the original trilogy was re-released in 2004, the “head-bumping Stormtrooper” scene was modified for DVD with an obvious sound effect that drew attention to the gaffe. 

  • Din Djarin wasn’t in Every Episode of The Mandalorian. 

If you thought Pascal was in every episode of The Mandalorian series underneath the helmet and armor, you were wrong. 

Bryce Dallas Howard, the director of the series, reveals he wasn’t there from the fourth episode. In fact, he didn’t appear at all in one of the episodes of this series. It’s hard to imagine any episode without the lead actor, isn’t it?

Brendan Wayne plays the Mando character, who was voiced by Pascal to make sense. 

  • Darth Maul Doesn't Blink in The Phantom Menace

Darth Maul's piercing yellow eyes, glowing like molten lava, make his appearance even more remarkable. But the dual lightsaber wielder with a demon face didn’t blink much in The Phantom Menace. 

He only blinks three times in the Movie when losing over Kenobi. This is because the lenses that the actor wore were very uncomfortable. They made his eyes watery or shifted the lens upon blinking. 

  • 49-Second Clip From Revenge of the Sith Created World Record 

Not only the visuals but even the sound effects (produced by John Williams) are considered better than other prequel trilogy films.  

The Revenge of the Sith had 2,151 shots with special effects, creating a world record. The film required 910 artists and 70,441 person-hours to create the 49-second clip for the Mustafar duel. 

  • Rey Wore Goggles that was Repurposed from a Stormtrooper Helmet

If you have watched Episode VII—The Force Awakens (2015) with all your eyes on the movie, you would have figured out that Rey’s goggles are familiar. They were the same lenses from one of the Stormtrooper helmets she reused while entering a Star Destroyer.


Digging out small details from your favorite films & movies gives a good sense of relief. A die-hard Star Wars fan will prove to know at least a few of the points, if not all. 

How many of the above have you noticed? If not any of them, it may be a good time to consider rewatching them. 

May the Force be with you!
