With The force awakens doing very well, Star Wars' position as top making movie series in the world has become even stronger now.  At this point, it is already making $1 Billion so far and not even a month since it came out globally.  This movie started off around the 70s just about after Sylvester Stallone finished filming Rocky.   He actually auditioned for the role of Han Solo but somehow did not make it through.  We guess George Lucas felt Harrison Ford's face is more outer space like than Sly.  We don't have pictures of Sly auditioning in front of a bored George Lucas.  But we do find couple of pictures below courtesy of www.ranker.com.

 

Huge Monster

Remember that one-liner “This is no cave!” in Empire strikes back?  It happened that Millenium Falcon landed in the belly of a huge worm-like thing called Exogorth or space slug.  It was pretty cool in the movie, right?  Well, here we can see it is just as big as a human’s hand.  That hand belong to the guy who operates it from under the platform.  Pretty cool that something as simple as this can look as cool as that in the movie, huh?

 

Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill

Being an actor is not easy job.  You have to remember lines after lines and keep on revising it in your head.  Here we see old picture of young Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill trying to put all the lines in their heads while cramming up in someone’s apartment. Why don’t you use the force and make it easier, guys?

 

R2D2 and C3PO

R2D2 and C3PO

We believe these two are unfamiliar faces to most of you.  But they played crucial roles in the original three Star Wars saga.  The little guy was the man behind R2D2.  While the hanky one was C3PO.  Even in the real world, they are still good friends.  No wonder they have good chemistry in the movie. BFF baby!

 

X-Wings vs Tie Fighters

X-Wings vs Tie Fighters

Remember all those explosions during the epic battle between X-wings and Tie fighters? It was awesome!! We remember watching it when we were small.  It helped us extending our imagination to whole new level. This is how they did it.  Cool huh? Filming is an art.

 

Darth Vader

Darth Vader

This guy was the man behind the black mask of Darth Vader.  He is David Prowse.  He was a bodybuilder by the way.  I wonder if that is one of the value why he was chosen.  Because I never see Darth Vader being big and brawny at all.  He didn’t speak at all during the original saga because George Lucas thought Vader has to have a commanding and charismatic voice.  That was why he picked James Earl Jones as the voice actor for only a mere $7000.  You could have asked for little bit more, James!

There you go!! Cool behind the scenes pictures of the legendary Star Wars saga.  Just wait for the next part coming soon!
