Today, we are going to pick 10 of the most famous ones (in no particular order), and then there is a bonus of 10 more.

How Han Solo Was Almost In The Prequel Trilogy
The prequel trilogy not only showed the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker, but it also gave fans a look at the origin of several other characters in the Star Wars universe. For some characters, like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, it was imperative to see them in the time before the fall of the Republic. On the other hand, the origins of characters like C-3PO and R2-D2 were nice little treats for fans. Creator Georg Lucas wanted to see one more character on screen in the prequels, however.

The Famous Actor Who Turned Down The Role Of Obi-Wan Kenobi (And Vader)

The Real-Life War 'Star Wars' Almost Caused
Star Wars films have their share of firsts, broken records, and bizarrely unique anecdotes surrounding their production. In the case of the original trilogy films, many of them involve filming on location. The lush and dense California Redwoods served as the forest moon of Endor, Hoth scenes were filmed on the frozen tundra of Norway's Hardangerjokulen Glacier, and the set of the Lars Homestead was famously built in Tunisia, North Africa surrounded by sands and sun.
