Happy Monday! It is time to get this work week started, so let’s get it started with this pretty cool Star Wars infographic. My last Star Wars infographic post, which can be found here, was so popular that I thought I would post another one. Unlike the one from last week, today’s has to do more directly with the movie franchise, as opposed to what resulted from it.
Never has a movie franchise affected popular culture as much as Star Wars has ours. George Lucas managed to not only create a movie, but created a whole new universe with its own history, which resulted in more fan involvement than any other movie franchise in history. Although I was not born until about 30 years after the first Star Wars was released, when I saw it it was as though it had just been released. Star Wars has managed to keep its steam throughout all these years and generation after generation continues to watch it.
Today’s infographic provides us with an up and down layout providing 19 different little known facts about Star Wars. As many of you may already know, James Earl Jones provided the voice for Darth Vader and Sebastian Shaw provided his face. However, did you know that there was a third actor involved in the creation of Darth Vader? David Prowse provided the massive body for the character. Another fun fact, the Ewoks were in fact named after the Native American tribe, Miwok, who lived in the Redwood forest in which the Endor scenes were filmed. [via]
