I thought for this Movie Monday I would show you 5 things that you may have missed if you have seen the latest Star Wars Movie. Perhaps if you’re a die hard fan, you probably already know them right?
1) James Bond Was A Stormtrooper!
Yes that’s right! Daniel Craig, the current James Bond, sort of makes an appearance in The Force Awakens as the Storm Trooper who Rey manages to first use her Jedi Mind trick on. Oh and you will never guess what his name was! JB-007!
2) Some Familiar Voices Return
When Rey picks up the Lightsaber originally owned by Luke Skywalker, she hears voices. Do you know whose voices they actually are? Ewan Mcgregor, a young Obi Wan, as well as Frank Oz, the voice of Yoda. They both recorded new lines to be added to the movie. Also, Alec Guinness, the original Obi Wan also has a line but as he wasn’t around to record new lines, they used a phrase he said in A New Hope, mainly of the word ‘Afraid’, and made it sound like he was saying ‘Rey’. #MINDBLOWN
Finn, the Stormtrooper turned allie, originally had the name FN-2187. This is actually a reference to the cell block where Leia was imprisoned in the first movie, A New Hope. Cool right?
4) Let’s Play Chess
A Chess game, otherwise known as Dejarik, was found on the Millennium Falcon by Rey and Finn when they first enter. It is the same game that was being played between C-3PO and Chewbacca in the original movies.
5) Carrie Fisher’s Daughter Is A Rebel!
Billie Lourd, Fisher’s daughter is seen in several scenes, as part of the Rebel Alliance. Not just that, but she is totally going for the full Princess Leia look, with those classic hair buns. Following in her mother’s footsteps there.
