Luke Skywalker was originally going to be taught by Jedi Master Sarah Michelle Gellar, and other interesting factoids…
Coinciding with yesterday’s release of The Making Of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back by J.W. Rinzler, i09’s Charlie Jane Anders gives us “10 things you probably didn’t know about Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back“.
Most notably, Yoda’s original name was Buffy.
Also, I think I speak for us all when I say George Lucas really dropped the ball when he decided against the whole “Darth Vader had a castle” idea. Think of a jet-black 20-mile high space castle with laser turrets and rocket cavalry. And I don’t know about you, but I definitely think you could pull off calling it The Death Castle and still sound bad ass.
