Star Wars Trivia
Let's start off with some interesting pieces of Star Wars trivia!

There was an unwritten rule with Autograph hunters that if you wanted to get his autograph, never ever mention Star Wars when writing a letter to him but instead talk about his wonderful performances in his other works!
George Lucas toyed with the idea of Luke Skywalker being a dwarf for apparently a considerable time.

He might have regretted it when he saw what a big hit the film was, but Ewan McGregor had first refusal on the role of Neo. He turned it down, and the Matrix went on to be a massive hit with Keanu Reeves in the lead role.
