10 Things You Never Knew About The Star Wars Franchise

The Millennium Falcon’s Shape Was Inspired By A Hamburger

The film’s model builders had originally made the Falcon in an entirely different shape, but it was eventually scrapped. The writing room eventually landed on the design for the ship based on a hamburger George Lucas was eating one day.

The original model for the Falcon was put to use though, as it was the Tantive IV, which is the first ship we see in the A New Hope.

Yoda Was Originally Supposed To Be A Trained Monkey Wearing A Mask

If you enjoyed the scenes that featured Yoda in the A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi then you need to thank Frank Oz. The puppet master brought the Jedi master to life, but George Lucas originally had the idea of using a real, trained monkey wearing a mask and carrying a cane to play Yoda. It’s not clear how the monkey was going to deliver his lines.
