Star Wars Documentary: From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga (Part 9 of 9)


The last part of the Star Wars documentary takes us in front of George Lucas who reminds us that the effects have no meaning if there is no underlying story and that the entire series is about the human frailties, not about meanness or even technology.

The human element can be seen in any part of the series and you can sometimes see an anti-technological tendency where the jedi needs to use his mind and not the technology to fight evil.

This Star Wars documentary has opened the appetite to see the entire series again, and this time I saw it in this order: parts 1, 2 and 3 and then 4, 5, and 6. The first three parts are prequels created after 1999 and the other three parts were created in the 80s.

In any case, I can’t wait to see Star Wars part VII, which will be released in December 2015.

“No, I am your father.”

“The force is strong with this one!”

Star Wars Documentary: From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga (Part 8 of 9)


In the 8th part of the Star Wars documentary we learn how hard it was to create a new language, the language of the ewok and that the final battle of the ewoks vs The Empire was supposed to be a battle between the whookies and The Empire.

George Lucas explained once again that the special effects had to make use to toys and figurines with studio sets to make the film a reality. Incredible as the movie is, most of the action and the space fighting was done using stop motion movies and a ton of toys.

Well done, George Lucas, well done!

Star Wars Documentary: From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga (Part 7 of 9)


In 7th part of this Star Wars Documentary George Lucas speaks about the characters and the importance of how people play them. C-3PO was meant to be a simple robot, with no possible future in the series, but Tony Daniels, the one who wore the threepio costume, has played his servant interpretation so good that George Lucas abandoned his idea of keeping that robot only as a car sales assistant.

Yoda was meant to be a simple pawn in the movie, but Frank Oz, the one who gave voice to Yoda played his role so good that this little green jedi received a special spot in the series. Star Wars has great characters and I loved to watch the entire series again. It was refreshing.
