With Disney having put down more than $4 billion into Lucasfilm, and an extra $250 million into making the movie itself, The Force Awakens experienced various—and now and again, unusual—stages before arriving at the in cinema
On that note, hey guys, welcome back to Watch Tank. Today we are drawing your attention to our top 10 picks of thing you missed in Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens
10. Matthew Vaughn and David Fincher almost directed it
It should come as a small shock that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy met with pretty much every director under the sun in the six or so months between the Disney purchase and the decision of a director. Kennedy has not unveiled all the names that crossed her work area, yet two have become visible in any event. Kennedy met with David Fincher regarding the undertaking. Fincher said that he generally viewed Star Wars as a tale about how slaves watched their lords’ indiscretion. With a bustling timetable, high asking cost, and troublesome notoriety, Fincher’s exchanges never got past the initial gathering.
Matthew Vaughn came near to directing Episode VII, Vaughn had several gatherings with Kennedy and even dropped out of directing X-Men: Days of Future Past to steal The Force Awakens. First Class director also dropped out of the rear portion of Fox’s Marvel freak establishment. He needed Chloe Grace Moritz ahead of the pack and a hazier tone in general, two things that at last crashed exchanges. He composed and directed Kingsman: The Secret Service instead, while director Bryan Singer returned to the X-Men establishment and directed X-Men: Days of Future Past, from Vaughn’s script. The declaration in 2015 that a full set of three new Star Wars movies would hit theaters,sent Hollywood and the web into a craze.
9. Cameos Attack
Fortunately, that scandalous NSYNC cameo during the Battle of Geonosis was extracted from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. At this point, most fans know about the way that the voices of establishment stars Frank Oz, Ewan McGregor, and the late Sir Alec Guinness would all be able to be heard in The Force Awakens. The director needed the movie to have something intriguing and remarkable about it. Even though the entire establishment stands separated in a bunch of Hollywood movies, JJ Abrams needed The Force Awakens to have something exceptional. Did you miss Simon Pegg as Ungar, the garbage vendor on planet Jakku? Or then again, Michael Giachino, the Oscar-winning music writer, also played a Stormtrooper in the film? Most fans know Warwick Davis is in the picture, just as James Bond star Daniel Craig. Be that as it may, there’s Bill Hader and Ben Schwartz, who contributed to the sounds exuding from BB-8. There are several Game of Thrones actors in the movie, like Mark Stanely as one of the Knights of Ren and Jessica Henwick as an X-Wing pilot. Henwick is presumably better known now from Marvel’s Iron Fist and The Defenders. What’s more, there’s Ken Leung, who was a piece of J.J. Abrams Lost and had a little yet substantial part on The Sopranos.
8. Luke Skywalker was all over the early drafts
Michael Arndt initially put the universe’s most popular Jedi into several critical scenes in what turned into The Force Awakens, with plenty of discourse. Imprint Hamill lost 50 lbs. what’s more, grew an exceptional Obi-Wan Kenobi style whiskers, showing up on set reasoning he’d at present be in any event in the third demonstration, significantly after J.J. Abrams and The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi co-writer Lawrence Kasdan had retooled the content. Arndt has spoken openly about the fact that it was difficult to shuffle the entirety of the first set of three characters and the new ones, especially with Luke in the blend, something Abrams had supported.
7. Finn Finds Luke’s Training Remote
In The Force Awakens, the negligible look at the Millennium Falcon will undoubtedly cause influxes of wistfulness for long-lasting Star Wars fans. In the movie, director JJ Abrams has amassed a considerable amount of other Easter eggs and references to the first Star Wars trilogy.
Finn (John Boyega) discovers a natural-looking spherical thing in one scene, which he suddenly throws to the side. The moment is brisk and transitory. However, devoted fans can remember it—the battle remote is a similar remote, which Luke Skywalker used to prepare within Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Obi-Wan Kenobi had entrusted Luke with the test of obstructing a progression of impacts from the droid with his lightsabre.
Will we see the Marksman-H battle remote in real life once more?
6. Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher’s Daughter, Plays Lieutenant Connix
Carrie Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, additionally showed up in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. In the film, Lourd stars as a Resistance official who is credited as “Lieutenant Connix”. Strikingly enough, it was as of late revealed that Lourd additionally tried out for the role of Rey, driving a few fans to conjecture on whether Rey is a Skywalker.
On The Ellen show, Lourd stated, “J.J. Abrams called me to come in for Star Wars because he couldn’t find someone for the lead. He ended up finding Daisy Ridley, who’s an incredible actress — so talented! But I went in, and he ended up giving me this small role with a couple of lines.”
Lourd is credited with repeating her role as Lieutenant Connix in the up and coming movie, and director Rian Johnson has formally confirmed that Rey’s folks will be talked about in The Last Jedi. It would appear that we’ll need to play the cat-and-mouse game with this one.
5. Injuries while on a shoot
During the shoot of the film, Harrison Ford hurt his foot when the water driven entryway fell on him. As a result, he needed to take a two-month break from the shooting. In the interim, the updates on his injury were not clear, and hypotheses were being made now and again that hewould bail out. Director JJ Abrams, in an answer to the media’s reaction, pronounced that Harrison had harmed himself in the back while attempting to lift the entryway, which assisted with being helpful with the movie’s exposure.
4. Boba Fett’s Flag
When Rey, Finn, and Han Solo show up at Maz Kanata’s château on Takodana, it appears like Rey wasn’t the one in particular who was surprised by her new environmental factors. Sharp-peered toward Star Wars fans have discovered a recognizable looking image on the banners showed before Maz Kanata’s refuge. A specific flag bears the mark Mandalorian configuration, driving numerous fans to accept that Boba Fett might be the genuine wellspring of the structure. Before the passage, one of the banners appears to portray the Mandalorian image, while another shows Boba Fett’s Mandalorian Crest as a wheat image.
Different banners incorporate images for producers, while others highlight the model for the odious space privateer, Hondo Ohnaka. Even though this is simply a hypothesis, much the same as with everything else, it appears as though the truth will surface eventually!
3. “I have a bad feeling about this”
For Star Wars fans, the natural expression of, “I have a bad feeling about this”, has become a progressing pattern inside the establishment. The notorious statement can be found inside every Star Wars movie, and even in different mediums and ventures.
In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Luke says the expression while onboard the Millennium Falcon, looking at the massive Death Star that is approaching out there. Amusingly enough, Han Solo echoes his assumptions somewhat later on in the film, right when the saints become snared in the waste disposal unit. In Empire Strikes Back, Leia rehashes the expression while inside the guts of the space slug. At the same time, C-3PO notices it in Return of the Jedi, directly before venturing foot into Jabba the Hutt’s royal residence on Tattooine. Han Solo additionally rehashes the expression later, when almost being cooked alive by Ewoks with Luke and Chewbacca. In The Force Awakens, Solo says the oft-rehashed expression, similarly as the Rathtars are liberated from imprisonment.
2. Droid Cameo to Honor A Little Girl Who Died Of Cancer
If you don’t know about R2-KT and the astromech’s profound association with the 501st Legion, don’t worry, we will quickly wrap this up.
Albin Johnson, the author of the Star Wars fan bunch known as the 501st Legion, at first, had needed an R2 astromech unit for his little girl, Katie, who became had developed a brain tumor. While the Star Wars fan bunch called the R2 Builders Club took a shot at making the droid, Katie sadly died before observing the finished droid.
For quite a long time, the droid has continued to portray Katie’s heritage with network outreach programs, fundraising occasions, and visiting youngsters in clinics. Lucasfilm observed this, and incredibly enough, R2-KT was included in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. In a brief scene, including the Resistance base on the planet of D’Qar, the splendid pink droid, R2-KT, can be spotted underneath an X-Wing.
Before we take you to our top 1 pick, here are some more facts you should know.
- In case you were wondering why Rey was able to wield a lightsabre so effectively, the Visual Guide explains that her skill with the staff translates well to other types of weapons.
- The outpost on Jakku where Rey trades in her scrap is Niima Outpost, and it was established by an “enterprising scoundrel” by the name of Niima the Hutt. A bounty hunter killed Niima.
- That X-Wing pilot helmet that Rey dons near the beginning of the film belonged to Captain Dosmit Ræh, a female pilot who flew with the Teirfon Yellow Aces of the Rebel Alliance.
- Puppet Pigs: The film has a scene where Finn, after crash-landing on the planet Jakku, tries to drink some dirty water consumed by a sizeable pig-like animal called the ‘Happabore.’ The animal was neither CGI generated nor an animatronic-based model, but rather a costume that was operated by five persons. So technically, it was a puppet handled by 5. One may think that a film like Star Wars should have gone for a better option such as using an animatronic, if not CGI, but what if you can go for a cheaper alternative that does the job and doesn’t look phony or cheap in the production film.
- The Voice of BB-8: The droid’s adorableness makes so much more sense now! If you pay attention to The Force Awakens’ end credits, you’ll see two actors listed as “voice consultants” for BB-8: None other than Bill Hader (Inside Out, Trainwreck) and Ben Schwartz (House of Cards). We would’ve loved to sit on one of those consulting sessions.

In one of the most perplexing scenes from Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Rey is strangely attracted to the basements of Maz Kanata’s manor and finds a natural blue lightsabre simultaneously. After seeing the weapon, Rey is immediately shipped into a fantasy-like flashback. In succession, there are pieces and bits of sound covering one another, including Luke’s notorious cry of, “Nooo!” from Empire Strikes Back, and another recognizable Jedi voice calling out, “Rey… these are your first steps.”
In a meeting with Entertainment Weekly, director JJ Abrams revealed that the sound was made with a concoction of voice-over work from Ewan McGregor, Frank Oz (Yoda), and late Alec Guinness. In the altering procedure, a line from Alec Guinness giving the signal, Afraid”, was tweaked to become, “Rey…” which is additionally heard in the scene.
