The Force was not always strong with the cast of George Lucas’ 1977 science fiction classic
What does Harrison Ford do if he messes up a line while filming? According to a new set of bloopers from the original “Star Wars,” he eats props.
The actor who played Han Solo in the science fiction saga’s “Episode IV: A New Hope,” “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” shoves a headset microphone in his mouth after flubbing a line next to his pal, Chewbacca, while filming a scene aboard the Millenium Falcon.
Mark Hamill, who played orphan-turned-Jedi Luke Skywalker, ponders the proper pronunciation of “supernova” in one outtake, while even Oscar-winner Sir Alec Guinness has trouble getting his lines right.
Watch the video above to see the vintage blooper reel, which also features Darth Vader’s menacing right-hand man, Admiral Tarkin, getting thrown off his game by Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia.
“Star Wars: Episode VII,” which is being directed by J.J. Abrams, is expected to hit theaters in 2015.
It was recently announced that Oscar-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt was no longer working on the sequel. Instead, Abrams is writing the script with “Empire Strikes Back” co-writer, Lawrence Kasdan.
