Everyone loves Star Wars, and I can’t verify that Lucas was not proud of the movie, but I did find that he was worried that the film would flop and he considered walking away from the planned possible sequels. I guess it’s a good thing he didn’t!

– James Cameron quit his job as a truck driver and went into filmmaking after seeing A New Hope in 1977.

– Even though Star Wars has an intricate and deep universe, Yoda’s species was never given a name, George Lucas and the creators left it a mystery on purpose. Lucas said: “So he’s a mystery character, he’s a magical character. He has no background. He comes and he goes. He’s the subversive secret mysterious stranger that enters the film and to then exits at the end.”
