    Um, Starkiller was the code name for Galen Marek before TFA, are we just going to forget that?

  3. CrazyJayBe October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    SPOILER ALERT: the prequels suck and Han gets killed by his emo son

  4. comic nerd101 October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    #1 is complete BS Anakin was supposed to be luke's sidekick, and his last name was supposed to be starkiller

  9. MrAutobot390 October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    There was a reference to Luke Starkiller in an episode of The Flash. Gypsy, who is from Earth-19 asks Cisco if he's trying to "Luke Starkiller her"

  10. ocularnervosa October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    Everyone knew #1.

  11. Kinetic Head October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    OK, when the teen girls of people in "The Business" want some boy band to be in Star Wars cause they just love them so much OMG OMG OMG OMG, I get now why those prequels sucked. Started with good old George catering to brats and then it just kept snow balling.

  12. siddhant ganguly October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    would have preferred the now i am vader ending…

  13. Ben Upton October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    who didnt know that luke's original name was starkiller ?

  14. So boss And awesome October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    Starkiller is now the name of a Jedi clone in the force awakens video games

  15. Andrew Chapman October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    3:19 Isn't that what eventually happens with Luke by the time of The Force Awakens?

    Wow, Darth Maul was originally going to be played by a James Bond villain henchman? In case anyone didn't know, Benicio del Toro appeared in the James Bond movie Licence to Kill, playing Bond villain Franz Sanchez's henchman, Dario.

    Number 1 fact should be:

    On January 11, 1977 Mark Hamill got into a car accident that fractured his nose and left cheekbone, so he needed plastic surgery. That is reason why looks so much different in Episode 4 and Episode 5, almost like another actor.

  17. The Spider October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    Starkiller wasn't used just for the base but originally when people hear starkiller, they think of Galen Marick (SW TFU)

  18. i8Gigabytes October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    I swaer that star killer was the name of the guy you played in star wars the force unleashed…

  19. Easy Simple Reviews October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    Dave Prowse taught my fencing coach in England, (who now is in Australia) so that technically makes my fencing coach Darth Vaders apprentice and me his second-apprentice.

  22. CerBoris October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    They wanted Chewie to wear Lederhosens. Seriously. How ridiculous would that have looked.

  23. BlackSwordChronicles October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    I just hate how sites like these just spread rumors and falsehoods. Can anybody point me to any source that says Benicio del Toro, not only considered, but cast in the role and then left? The source for this doesnt appear. Not only that, but the story is absurd. First of all, Darth Maul was always to be the big fight at the end, and Lucas knew he needed choreography and artial artists. Why the hell would he even consider Benicio for such a role? Also, you say he was cast but didnt like the character didnt spoke. What, he accepted without even reading a script, or hearing the premise of what his character was (since the very beginning Maul was a monster type character that o ly comes out to terrorze the heroes)? I also have a problem with the Luke turning to the dark side story. The source for this is a Mark Hamill anecdote, but people extrapolate far too much from what he said. Luke turning was never, EVER, Lucas's intention, regardless of what others may have pitched him. Luke was going to look for his sister in VII, so he couldnt be evil at the end. Not only this, but the first script, dated February 1981, has no such "dark Luke" ending. Lucas wanted to build his ranch, so he wasnt going to make some controversial ending that hurt the success of the movie. At that point in time, he needed Jedi to be as big as the original movie was if he wanted to realize his dream of a ranch and a studio for it. Please, people, go to sources before believing half truths and made up stories.

    I wish people would stop hating the prequels! Seriously they aren't bad…I think they are good in their own way and they help fill in the blanks. 😡

  33. Disney Smith October 12, 2017 at 3:59 pm
