Do you know the name of the Stormtrooper who picked up the o-ring and identified it came from a droid in Star Wars: A New Hope? I know a few people who know that without even blinking. Perhaps you know all the Star Wars facts in this latest infographic from MorphCostumes – or if you don’t, you can memorize a few and impress the ladies and gents at your next bar crawl.

    Nice looking infographic, and some of the tidbits are truly obscure. Much of it I “knew,” though some I didn’t. A couple of these are easily not right, though, and not too obscure to prove. A quick google search immediately gave me the proof that I wasn’t mis-remembering things in my dotage.

    Phantom Menace is the first time we see a lightsaber activated on-screen? Hardly; we get multiple instances in the original, including the very first scene we ever see such a weapon. This scene is the one where Luke is given his father’s lightsaber with the exchange “What is it?” “Your father’s lightsaber,” which means it was very “beknown” to him at the time.

      Yeah, I didn’t get past that “fact”. The first time you ever see a lightsaber, you see it get activated.

      Also, under A New Hope it says “Unbeknown to him at the time, Like Skywalker is give his Fathers old lightsaber by Ben Kenobi.” Except that Obi Wan specifically says, “It’s your father’s lightsaber, the weapon of a Jedi Knight,” when he give Luke the lightsaber.
