The film-making process lends itself to mistakes being made. It’s a creative endeavour, often involving literally hundreds of individual specialists, long days and tight schedules. It’s also increasingly a practice that is reliant on technology working the way it is expected. Given this, it’s inevitable that the odd blooper will appear on any production. In fact, it’s surprising that they aren’t more common, but such is a testament to the professionalism of many in the industry.
The Star Wars saga has now delivered nine canonical live-action feature films; spanning five decades. As you might imagine, this means that there have been plenty of mishaps on the set of these films. Those that are caught on camera are often the most humorous, as they involve characters and actors that we all know and love.
The following video presents 10 bloopers from the Star Wars films. Though you’ve likely seen some, there were actually a few in here that came as a surprise to me. Hopefully the video holds a few hidden treasures for you also. Enjoy!
