The voice of Ahsoka Tano, Ashley Eckstein, hosted. (And sat subsequent to Christensen!)
The panelists spent more often than not reminiscing in regards to the nice recollections they made throughout manufacturing, and the unimaginable technical achievements the movie attained (together with being the primary function size movie filmed digitally). But the highlights had been, in fact, the non-public tales.
Jango Fett himself, Temuera Morrison (who just lately starred in The E book of Boba Fett), kicked issues off with a cautionary story about talking up for your self. He stated that whereas capturing the scene in his room on Kamino the place he tells his son, Boba Fett, to pack up as a result of they’re leaving, he observed George Lucas was capturing him from the waist up. He thought the road can be higher captured in shut up however didn’t really feel snug suggesting that to the grasp filmmaker. Quick-forward a number of months and Morrison will get a cellphone name. He’s wanted in London to do Assault of the Clones reshoots. So he information from New Zealand to England, which takes over a day, will get to the studio, fits up… and delivers the very same line in an in depth up. That was it. He was executed.
For the actor who performed his son, Daniel Logan, he defined that he knew Jango Fett died within the movie—but it wasn’t till the premiere when he realized what the scene of him holding Jango’s helmet meant, and he stated he was the one particular person within the theater excited. He thought that meant he was coming again for Episode III and set free a cheer. Which, in fact, didn’t occur. “Hey, they gave me a Lego sport,” he joked.
Later, after McGregor got here on stage, he couldn’t recall a lot about filming the rain-soaked battle with Jango Fett, however did have a really clear reminiscence of the scene when he confirmed as much as the door of the Fett residence. Boba solutions the door and, apparently, Lucas needed him to look suspicious of the Jedi. Take after take although, Logan couldn’t get it. Then, McGregor took the younger actor apart and stated to him, “Once I open the door, act like I’ve executed a horrible fart.” It was the proper motivation—and seeing as how properly it labored, Lucas thought so, too.
