Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
This moment from the original Star Wars is the central reason for the bad taste the prequels left in my mouth. Obi-Wan explaining the Force to Luke, telling him about his father and the days before the Empire was so rich with wondrous ambiguity that when Lucas fumbled it frustrated me.
Granted it would probably be impossible to live up the dreams inspired by Alec Guinness’ words, but you get the feeling that Lucas at one time knew how to tell the prequel story with the same kind of magic he infused the original Star Wars Trilogy with.
But enough about prequel bashing. It’s boring, it’s the same sad story from a sad geek you’ve heard a dozen times before. How about we just focus on the greatness of this first movie, particularly the scene featured today?
Below we have George Lucas working with Guinness, going over the famous handing down of the Skywalker family lightsaber. I have a couple of pictures from this particular set, so you’ll get two for the price of one today! Both are clickable for bigger versions! Enjoy!
Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic follows the Star Wars Saga to it’s next installment… although don’t trust your assumption. It may be deceiving you!
