The original Star Wars film is filled with hilarious moments from Anthony Daniels’ C-3PO. But did you ever wonder why the droid says “the damage doesn’t look so bad” on the escape pod in A New Hope? Well, one theorist reckons they’ve worked it out and fans love it.
Reddit user JournalofFailure wrote: “I’ve often wondered why C3PO, when he and R2D2 are in the escape pod after Vader has boarded Leia’s ‘diplomatic’ ship, makes a point of saying ‘that’s funny, the damage doesn’t look so bad from here.’
“Seems like kind of a weird line for the filmmakers to emphasise.
“My theory: though the special effects were groundbreaking and still look good over 40 years later, Lucas wasn’t completely satisfied with them.
“He thought Leia’s ship should have looked like it had taken more damage.”

They added: “So he included that line in case anyone in the audience felt the same way.”
Little did Lucas know that his sci-fi experiment would pay off big time, making him a billionaire.
Last month, Mark Hamill corrected the reason for A New Hope’s reshoots after a claim he botched his lines.
The 68-year-old tweeted: “This article states we reshot the rescue of Leia scene because I ‘botched’ my line.
He added: “In fact, we had to redo it weeks later, because my name was changed to Skywalker AFTER we did it the 1st time (when my name was still Starkiller). #TrueFunFact.”
Dedicated Star Wars fans will know George Lucas changed Luke Starkiller to Skywalker as he felt the surname was too violent for his hero.
The original name was paid homage to in The Force Awakens as the name of Kylo Ren’s new Death Star.
The Skywalker Saga may have concluded with The Rise of Skywalker last Christmas, but Star Wars is far from over.

Aside from Disney+ TV shows like The Mandalorian, new spin-off films are in the works at Lucasfilm./Users/ghsimpo/Desktop/01.jpg
They includes one co-written and directed by Taika Waititi announced on Star Wars Day this year.
Meanwhile, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is planning a new Star Wars trilogy.
And Marvel boss Kevin Feige is producing a film in the franchise, helmed by a major actor.
So far there have only been two Star Wars spin-offs in Rogue One and Solo.
The latter was setting up a sequel but bombed at the box office, so don’t expect a follow-up anytime soon.
However, the story could easily continue in the form of a Disney+ movie or TV series.
The next Star Wars movie is slated for December 16, 2022, whatever that happens to be.
