Trivia Mark Hamill claimed in an interview with New York Magazine to have been approached to appear in this movie, but declined. He would go on to criticize the filmmakers' approach, claiming that it was "an open invitation to trash George" and that he would never do that to family. See more »

Quotes Jay Sylvester: [regarding the changes made to the original Star Wars trilogy] George Lucas may be the brainchild behind Star Wars; he may have come up with the story and a lot of the characters, but everyone who participated in making those films had some type of creative input. I mean they won an Oscar for best special effects. Some of those effects are stripped out and replaced with CGI enhancements, if you wanna call them that. I think that that's really disrespectful to the people who worked on those models and did those shots.
