Star Wars always brings out my nerdyness. Here are a few things you may not know about Star Wars:
  1. During the pod racing scene in Phantom Menace the people in the stands are actually Q-tips.
  2. Luke Skywalker's name has a meaning- Luke is a doctor in the bible and He "walks in the sky healing the republic.
  3. Obi Wan's name has a meaning- "Only One" could train Luke
  4. Han Solo's name has a meaning- He Handles it alone hence the solo
  5. Darth Vader means Dark Father in German
  6. The reason Luke's Light-saber is Green in the Return of the Jedi is because the blue did not show up well against the Blue Sky.
  7. E.T from Steven Spielberg's movie actually made an appearance in Phantom Menace during the scene with the senate

  9. Some of the asteroids in the Empire Strikes Back were beets painted brown

  11. "I have a bad feeling about this" line is also in every Star Wars movie
  12. Harrison Ford ad-libed his line in the exchange: LEIA-"I love you" HAN-"I Know" as well as his line when he is talking through the intercom in a storm trooper uniform in A New Hope
  13. Ian McDiarmid did not play the emperor in the Empire Strikes Back. It was really an old women with a monkey face superimposed over her face
