George Lucas has said this multiple times in his interviews that he had never imagined that Star Wars is going to be one of most popular science fiction movie of all time. There have been many attempts to recreate the magic of Star Wars by several great filmmakers, but nothing worked no matter how hard they tried as if some elder gods had blessed George Lucas’s direction. Disney has already announced that they want to keep making Star Wars movies forever if the fans want to see it and by the success of the current trilogy, we are pretty sure that Disney is going to create a consistent massive Star Wars universe that even our grandchildren will enjoy someday.
The whole culture of Star Wars started from the Orignal Trilogy, a saga that has created religions like Sith and Jedi in real life. All the significant actors connected to the original Star Wars films have become perennial superstars! Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher will always be Luke and Leia for the majority of fans out there; we can’t imagine them in any other role. Even though Mark has done some remarkable work by lending his voice for Joker in DC’s animated cartoons, but still he will always be the “Luke Skywalker” for us.
There are several interviews of the cast involved in making this legendary movie where they keep saying they had a blast while making the film. Harrison Ford has explicitly stated that he had so much fun on the set that he didn’t felt like he was doing any work. Maybe he had more fun than others as he had a secret but brief affair with Carrie Fisher behind the sets, which she had revealed in her book and also confirmed the same in an interview a month before she passed away.
We were able to get some entertaining behind the scene pictures of the cast members having fun during the shoots of the original trilogy. We are sure that most of our readers have not seen these pictures before because these snaps are rare. Here is the compilation of those BTS pics, enjoy!
