DISCOVERIES FROM INSIDE: COSTUMES REVEALED
Take a look at some of the most iconic wardrobe pieces in cinema history in this exclusive bonus feature. And discover some interesting insight into the costumes of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Han Solo and other fascinating Star Wars characters.
COSTUMES REVEALED: FACT #1
In order to make the masks of the Tusken Raiders, prop designers raided a number of plumbing stores, hardware stores and camera stores in England. They picked up whatever they thought would work for the fearsome desert savages.
COSTUMES REVEALED: FACT #2
George Lucas is a huge fan of the Samurai. In fact, the chest plate and mask of Darth Vader’s costume reflects his fandom of the iconic Japanese warriors.
DISCOVERIES FROM INSIDE: WEAPONS & THE FIRST LIGHTSABER
The hallowed Archives at Skywalker Ranch are opened up to showcase classic props created for the Star Wars Empire in this bonus feature…
WEAPONS & THE FIRST LIGHTSABER: FACT #1
Han Solo’s iconic blaster was created using a Mauser C96 pistol with a silencer attached. A set decorator for Star Wars Episode IV named Roger Christian came up with the look of the perfect prop pistol.
WEAPONS & THE FIRST LIGHTSABER: #2
Did you know that many of the stormtroopers in the early movies shot their pistols left-handed because of the design and the way that the empty shells expel from the barrel? The design of the stormtroopers’ blasters used in A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back was based on a Sterling submachine gun.
WEAPONS & THE FIRST LIGHTSABER: #3
Roger Christian discovered the inspiration behind the iconic lightsaber in the most unlikely of places. Inside a random box at the studio, Christian found a number of Graflex handles, which were from flashguns of vintage cameras from the 1940s. They became the iconic basis of the lightsaber handle in the movies.
