These Star Wars scenes used more than just Jedi mind tricks to fool audiences...
Since George Lucas and the gang first set out on their mission to bring the biggest blockbuster on a budget the movie industry had ever been exposed to back in the '70s into being, ingenious ways of suspending an audience's disbelief have been very much prevalent.
Back then, before the tool of CGI was the go-to weapon of choice for many a movie studio looking to blast a bunch of protagonists off into the various corners of space, everything from exceptionally crafted miniatures to out of this world costume design were heavily relied upon as the folks behind the magic did everything in their power to convince audiences they were actually being catapulted into a three-dimensional galaxy far, far away...
And as the years have rolled by, and technology has only improved with each passing decade, the act of successfully pulling the wool over Star Wars fans' always-engaged eyes has arguably becoming increasingly easier to execute, with everything from seamless digital effects to cutting edge sound design all helping keep up the Force-sensitive-facade and the some.
From brilliant solutions solving the problem of a missing actor, to on-set injuries being masked by subtly masterful camera work, these are just a few of the Star Wars scenes that were secretly deceiving you.
10. Adam Driver Recorded His Last Few Lines In His Closet - The Rise Of Skywalker
It's not exactly a secret at this point that a great many changes were made to J.J. Abrams' The Rise of Skywalker flick over the course of the ninth and final Skywalker Saga entry's creation, with many script rewrites and reshoots taking place before Episode IX finally landed on our screens.
What you may not be aware of, though, is the fact that some of the final lines ever let loose by none other than Kylo Ren himself Adam Driver weren't actually uttered on one of the film's sets or in front of any camera at all.
In fact, according to the movie's sound editor Matthew Wood, Driver was tasked with recording his last lines as a masked Ren within the comfort of his own Brooklyn home. But with the actor not exactly coming equipped with his own state of the art ADR booth, Wood would confess:
"... I went to (Driver's) house in Brooklyn... I ended up opening up one of his closets where he had all of his suits, and I just pushed the suits out of the way and said, 'hang your head in here.'"
The glamour of filmmaking, eh...
