In my experience, there's no such thing as luck.— George Lucas
Sublime Star Wars Movie quotations
Since Star Wars, that film's success led to bigger budgets, more hardware, that the great movies like the ones I did, which were studio movies, are now independent movies. They range from half a million to several million, and a lot of those have very interesting roles.
The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the force.
Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.
The first script was one of six original stories I had written in the form of two trilogies. After the success of Star Wars, I added another trilogy. So now there are nine stories. The original two trilogies were conceived of as six films of which the first film was number four.
I watch a lot of astronaut movies....Mostly Star Wars. And even Han and Chewie use a checklist.
Know what you're talking about.
Saying “I'll try” means our soul isn't really in it.
We tell ourselves “I'll try” when our inflated egos won't come clean and admit that we're actually not all that determined. We can't overcome obstacles with the words “I'll try.” As Yoda, the philosopher in the Star Wars movies, says, “Do, or do not. There is no 'try.
I've learned that the movies [Star Wars] will never finally end.
It just goes on and on and on and on. I mean, it's going to be in 3D, then it's going to be smellivision, then it's going to be a ride in an amusement park, then they'll come to your house and perform it with puppets on your lawn ... it'll never end! I accepted that a long time ago.
Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.
I think that Star Wars revolutionized not only sci-fi movies, but also the entire industry in the way that things are done.
I would like to see a fierce Fantasia mixed with Blade Runner, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars all in one. That's the kind of movies I want to make.
Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.
And it's only the beginning of a new era of exceptional Star Wars storytelling;
next year we'll release our first standalone movie based on these characters, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, and we'll finish this trilogy with Episode IX in 2019.
The reason the first three Star Wars movies were so terrific, and the second three sucked so bad, is actually very simple. The first three were about rebels, shooting guns and driving fast, and speaking with American accents. The second three were about politicians, discussing treaties and holding court, and speaking with British accents.
The thing about science-fiction fans and "Star Wars" fans is they're very independent-thinking people. They all think outside the box, but they all have very strong ideas about what should happen, and they think it should be their way. Which is fine, except I'm making the movies, so I should have it my way.
I can't get my head around the fact that the technology of the first two movies, which are forty years prior to Star Wars, is so much better than any technology they had in Star Wars!
The greatest experience I've ever had in a movie theater was watching "Star Wars." It shaped how I look at the world. My imagination was so small before I went in that theater and there was an explosion in my head. I just couldn't figure out how someone came up with it.
Star Wars, the original movie, was all the various old genre of pictures: the swashbucklers, the war movies, all those things were put n there in a different look.
I haven't been to a movie since somebody gave me free tickets to Star Wars, which I went to.
The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.
Several hard-core Star Wars fans who had tickets for the first showing actually said that when the movie finally began, they started crying. Mainly because they realized that it's 22 years later, and they still haven't lost their virginity.
Maybe the next three Star Wars movies will tell the story of how the last three Star Wars movies got so shitty.
For me, Glasgow is all about the people and the spirit of the place.
You have enough Greggs bakers, though, Ill say that. The opening of the 1977 Star Wars movie was possibly the only time Ive seen a longer queue round the block than in Glasgow for sausage rolls. That was quite an eye-opener.
We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life.
Han Solo: Wonderful girl. Either I'm going to kill her or I'm beginning to like her.
These Are Not The Droids You Are Looking For.
It was great. We knew we were going back when we finished the movie. It was such a big movie [Star Wars].
I've loved the "Star Wars" movies for the ride and pure fun and found that it just didn't stand up when asked for more, particularly when it comes to back stories, prequels, spin-offs, encyclopedic scope, etc.
I don't know if the '80s were unique, but we certainly got original, groundbreaking stuff at the time with movies like 'Back to the Future' and 'Star Wars' - movies that became classics.
If one of your best friends is making a Star Wars movie, you're not gonna not abuse that privilege. I defy anybody to say otherwise!
I see in the fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived.
I see all this potential and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars, advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of the history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great war, no Great depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives, we've been all raised by television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won't and we're slowly learning that fact. and we're very very pissed off.
You've seen how they make movies like Star Wars and stuff.
They're never really there. They're in front of a green screen just pretending to be jumping around.
I just remember saying to myself that I'd much rather do movies than modeling, and that it was worth a try. I didn't really know anything about it. I hadn't seen many movies, or so-called, good movies. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Star Wars and Night of the Living Dead. When I got more curious about the movies, I thought they were something you had to learn about and go to school for and read every book.
I talked to George Lucas once, not about Star Wars.
Everyone wants to talk to him about Star Wars, and I didn't want to be one of those people. In person - at least on this occasion - he wasn't effervescent and giddy, as the Star Wars movies are. He's more focused.
