1. Yoda was originally planned to be played by a monkey (with a mask, holding a little cane). That didn’t work out because the monkey wouldn’t comply with the right acting directions… It’s also interesting to note that Yoda’s species has never been officially named.

2. Chewbacca‘s voice was made with a mashup of different animal recordings. Bears, lions, badgers, walruses, sick animals, domestic animals..

3. You can use collectable Star Wars coins as real currency on the small South Pacific island Niue. Time to save up…

4. The lightsaber sounds were made from the hum produced from old televisions next to a microphone. Vrooom…

5. Every single stormtrooper in the original trilogy movies is made with CGI (computer-generated imagery). The movies were using a lot of CGI compared to other movies at that time.. Times have really changed since then!
