    Return of the Jedi or When Lucas realized that films costs money

    Lucas clearly tried to cut costs on this one (ex. the obvious matte painting of the Falcon, instead of an on-set prop, like in the first two films).

    An interesting discovery I made a while back, is that there are female fighter pilots at the rebel debriefing (though, I won't be surprised if some throws a fit if TFA or Rogue One features a female fighter pilot). And one of the pilots in the actual battle (while voiced by a man), is played by a woman. They also shot several other female pilots, for the battle, but none of them made it into the actual film for an unknown reason.

    This film also marked the debut of a young Warwick Davis as the main Ewok (a role he'd later reprise in two TV movies). The Ewoks are often accused as being something cuddly, added to the film, to make it more kid friendly. However, in the films, when they first meet Luke, Han and Chewbacca, the Ewoks' first instinct is to eat them. What's so cute and cuddly about that? A sketch on Robot Chicken claims the Empire was defeated by Ewoks. This is not true. The Ewoks didn't defeat the Empire. All they did was supply the troops on Endor with a massive distraction, giving the rebels there the chance to regain the upper hand. Han was the one to blow up shield generator. Wedge and Lando blew up the new Death Star. And Vader was the one to kill the Emperor.

    Rewatched it yesterday. I don't mind the basic idea of Anakin's force ghost looking like Hayden (he never looked like Sebastian Stan as Anakin). However, the problem is in the execution. The footage they used, wasn't specifically shot for this. Instead, they used (as I've heard it) footage from a wardrobe test. Actors don't act during those, they make awkward smiles, weird looks, goof around, etc. (you can find a bunch of examples on Youtube). What they should've done is either get Hayden in or shot some footage, when he had the time during the filming of RotS, not just grab some random footage they had.
