History lesson

Fun facts about Star Wars

  • Inspiration from Akira Kurosawa: George Lucas was inspired by Akira Kurosawa's 1958 film "The Hidden Fortress" to tell the Star Wars story from the perspective of the two lowest characters, which in Star Wars are the two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO.
  • The Original Script: The original script for Star Wars was over 200 pages long, far exceeding the average screenplay length. Lucas decided to cut the final two acts and present the first act as the complete story. The excised parts were later expanded into "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi".
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi's Survival: In the original shooting script, Obi-Wan Kenobi survived his lightsaber battle with Darth Vader. This was later changed to his iconic death scene.
  • Harrison Ford's Casting: Harrison Ford was initially brought in to read lines to actors during the audition process. However, Lucas was so impressed with Ford's delivery that he cast him as Han Solo.
  • Sound Design: Sound designer Ben Burtt created a completely new and organic soundscape for Star Wars. Chewbacca’s voice is a blend of bear, lion, walrus, and badger vocalizations, while R2-D2’s “voice” was made using loops on a synthesizer matched with baby coos.
  • Darth Vader's Voice: George Lucas originally wanted Orson Welles as the voice of Darth Vader, but decided against it as Welles’s famous baritone would be too recognizable.
  • The Millennium Falcon: The original concept model of the Millennium Falcon was long and cylindrical. However, it was changed to a flat design that Lucas described as looking like a flying hamburger.
  • Chewbacca's Costume: The original costume for Chewbacca was created by legendary makeup supervisor Stuart Freeborn, who was recruited because of his work on the apes in the “Dawn of Man” sequence in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • The Empire Strikes Back's Budget: Due to the overwhelming success of Star Wars, Lucas decided to fund The Empire Strikes Back out of his own pocket, giving him complete creative control. However, when the budget ballooned to $10 million over the original estimate, Lucas had to approach 20th Century Fox for help.
  • Yoda's Original Name: In early drafts of the screenplay, Yoda was actually named “Buffy,” which was completely changed in subsequent drafts to the full name “Minch Yoda,” and then shortened to just Yoda.

Akira Kurosawa's films are referenced throughout Star Wars

The Star Wars franchise, a brainchild of George Lucas, is a rich tapestry of influences, with the films of Akira Kurosawa being a significant thread. Kurosawa's work, particularly films like "The Hidden Fortress," "Seven Samurai," and "Yojimbo," have left an indelible mark on the Star Wars universe.

One of the most striking influences is seen in the 1958 film "The Hidden Fortress." Lucas borrowed story elements and character archetypes from this film, most notably in the characters of C-3PO and R2-D2. These characters mirror the two peasants from "The Hidden Fortress," who bicker and navigate perilous situations, providing a unique perspective to the narrative. The character of Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi also draws parallels with Rokurota Makabe, a general of a now-defeated noble family from the same film. The duel between Rokurota and his rival, Hyoe Tadokoro, is mirrored in OObi-Wan'sbattle with Darth Vader on Mustafar, where he spares the Sith Lord but leaves him disfigured.

Kurosawa's 1954 epic "Seven Samurai" has also influenced Star Wars, with its story template adapted three times in the franchise. The tale of a small group of Ronin defending a helpless farming village from marauders is echoed in Marvel's Star Wars comics, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and The Mandalorian.

Beyond these two films, other Kurosawa films have also found their way into the Star Wars universe. A scene from 11961's" Yojimbo" is referenced in "New Hope," where Ben Kenobi dispatches a pair of criminals, including cutting off the arm of one, mirroring a similar scenario in "Yojimbo." The Star Wars franchise's non-movie material also references Kurosawa's 1949 crime drama, "Stray Dog, in the Clone Wars episode "Lightsaber Lost." While the Star Wars franchise is a unique creation, it is impossible not to see the ways Akira Kurosawa inspired Star Wars. The homage to Kurosawa's films is a testament to the enduring influence of his work on global cinema and a tribute to his storytelling genius.
