There's only going to be a couple of ground rules here:

First, no questions regarding the Expanded Universe. Only the five (soon to be six) SW films. That said, they can be related to story, technical, character, video releases, etc.

Second, there will always be four questions in rotation. If you answer one, you post one to replace it. Answer two, provide two questions. Get the idea? :)

Third, if you answer a question and are proven that your answer was wrong, you must sing a Bad Song Lyric of Shame. We'll be on the honor system, so no need to actually post them. :)

Here's the first four questions:

1) What are the only song lyrics to be sung in English in the films?

2) Which Ewoks are named in Return of the Jedi?

3) What were the first changes Lucas made to Star Wars after the initial release?

4) "Spot the 1138!" Where is 1138 in ANH, ESB, and TPM? (And if you can find it in ROTJ or AOTC, by all means tell me! :D)

Have at you!

Off the top of my head, I can answer a couple of those.

2) No ewoks are named, nor is the word "ewok" even mentioned.

3) He changed the title to "Star Wars: episode IV - A New Hope" during the opening crawl

4) Maybe it's because I have a head cold, but I'm blanking on the 1138 appearances other than on the back of the battle droid at the end of the battle with the Gungans in TPM.

In SW I believe 1138 is the call sign used by the inquiring DS officer over the intercom in the detention level before Han Solo blasts the radio. "It was a boring conversation anyway."

El Chuxter

EP, you're very close on the 1138 in ANH. A few frames off, maybe. :D

B'omarr, you answered #2 correctly, so you owe us a question! (Or you can defer that right.)

There was one other change I was also thinking of for #3, so whoever can "buzz in" and answer that one gets a medal. . . or at least the privilege of asking the next question.

So the questions up for grabs are:

1) What are the only song lyrics to be sung in English in the films? (I feel that I should clarify that the "Uh oh!" at the end of "Jedi Rocks" isn't what I'm looking for.)

2) Whatever B'omarr Monkey wants #2 to be!

3) In addition to adding "Episode IV: A New Hope," what was the change Lucas made to Star Wars in its first re-release? (A little teeny clue in the way I re-worded that.)

4) "Spot the 1138!" Where is 1138 in ANH and ESB?

Oh wait, doesn't Luke say that Chewie is a prisoner transfer from Cell Block 1138 or something like that?

dr_evazan22
10-13-2004, 04:45 PM
That's right EP.

4. ANH - "... Cell block 1138."
ESB - I forget the exact wording, but it's on Hoth. Something like Echo Station 138. It's on the DVD commentary.
TPM - On the back of the droid, as previously mentioned.

And in AOTC they say that the little red dot on the back of the Clone helmet has the numerical designation on it. Using the naked eye, I'm pretty sure it's not even visible on an IMAX screen, so I guess we'll have to take their word there.

dr_evazan22
10-13-2004, 04:55 PM
Alright, you prompted me to get out the DVD. In ESB Gen Rieekan gives a direction to send [?] 10 and 11 to station 38.

If this is an acceptable answer, then I defer to the delegation from Naboo.

3) In addition to adding "Episode IV: A New Hope," what was the change Lucas made to Star Wars in its first re-release? (A little teeny clue in the way I re-worded that.)Beru's new voice and Chewie roaring at the mouse droid were both not on the original prints.[/quote]

4) "Spot the 1138!" Where is 1138 in ANH, ESB, and TPM? (And if you can find it in ROTJ or AOTC, by all means tell me! :D)If by English you mean an actual human language then the answer's are Qui-Gons funeral, Duel of the Fates, and if I'm not mistaken the new Ewok song

TPM: The back of the battledroid
ANH: "Prisoner transfer from cell block 1-1-3-8"
ESB: "Send rogues 10 and 11 to station 38"

10-13-2004, 05:18 PM
El Chuxter I've got a question. When you say that they can't be regarding the EU does that mean nothing written about events after ROTJ or nothing pertaining to the films that wasn't mentioned in them specifically (i.e. what Gen. Veers first name is?)

In case you're wondering it's Maximillian.

El Chuxter
10-13-2004, 05:28 PM
Good point. I'd say as long as it pertains to the film in some way, and isn't something like "What was the son of Ulic Qel Darth Vos Sido named, and when did he find the Crystal of Shamalamadingdong?" then it should be okieday.

And by "English lyrics," I mean actual English, not another human language.

Slicker
10-13-2004, 05:33 PM
Thanks for clearing that up and since it's actual english I'm completely stumped.

Since noone else is giving questions here goes: Which Star Destroyer is seen chasing the Tantive IV in the beginning of ANH?

For the song, I have no idea! Unless it's "oh-oh-oh" for the Emperor's Arrival/Theme, then I think everyone is stumped. Or else there aren't any, it's a trick question?

Though I haven't really answered a question: what is the name of Jabba's sail barge?

The 1138 in ATOC is seen when Padme falls from the gunship and rolls across the desert sand. The numbers are formed in the sand as she rolls across it.

El Chuxter
10-13-2004, 07:09 PM

Yeah, you was right! (And I wasn't even aware of the Chewie change.)

Just jump right in with a new question if you think you're right. Otherwise we could have to wait on someone to log back in to keep the ball rolling.

If no one answers the question about the English lyrics by tomorrow, I'll give everyone a hint. :D

1) What are the only song lyrics to be sung in English in the films?


The words sung during "Duel of the Fates" were not in English. The only English is at the end of the original Ewok song in ROTJ. Just as Luke sees the spirits, the song goes from "Yub Nub" to "Celebrate the dawn......celebrate the love.....celebrate the loooo...ooooooove."

tagmac
10-13-2004, 07:20 PM
My question is a two-parter. a.) In the Original Trilogy only, what is the very first line spoken, and by whom, and what is the last line spoken, and by whom? (song lyrics don't count).
b.) When watched in the proper order including the prequels, what is now the very first line, and who says it?

B'Omarr Monkey
10-13-2004, 08:07 PM
Here's my trivia question, which is also appropraite for the season.

Bob Burns is a well known collector of horror and science fiction memorabilia, who has worked in the entertainment industry for decades. He is also known for staging elaborate Halloween shows at his house which often adapt classic movies into short skits, such as "Alien," and the 1950s version of "The Thing." In one of these Halloween shows, a cantina character is featured very prominently.

a. Which cantina denizen was it?

b. What was the movie being adapted for the Halloween show, that it was used for?

a. First - C-3PO: "Did you hear that? They've shut down the main reactor."

Last - Leia: "He's my brother."

b. Qui-Gon: "Captain, tell them we wish to board at once."

My apologies if these aren't exact. I'm trying to do this off the top of my head, without looking at the movies.

You're half right, but there is another one.

El Chuxter
10-14-2004, 01:03 PM
Does Tey Hwo count, since his/her/its voice was portrayed by Lucas' daughter? Or is Tey Hwo female? Was this ever conclusively decided? :)

How about Wicket, whose voice was provided by an elderly Native American woman?

Here's the complete English lyrics sung at the end of "Ewok Celebration" (which are more easily heard on the film version found on Disc 4 of the soundtrack boxed set, as it eliminates a lot of the Ewok voice overdubbing):

"Celebrate the light -- freedom!
Celebrate the fight -- power!
Celebrate the might -- glory!
Celebrate the love
Celebrate the love
Celebrate the love
Celebrate the looooooooooooove"

It's not just wishful thinking on my part. Check the booklet with the boxed set to confirm it if you don't believe me.

B'Omarr Monkey
10-14-2004, 04:17 PM
I believe that at least one of the protocol droids was played by a woman (not just the TC-14 voice), which makes sense since you have to be pretty small to fit in those costumes.

I guess, that since I got the first/last lines question right I get to ask a new question. this one should be easier than my other one which i notice no one has taken a shot at answering yet. Here goes:

In AOTC, Obi-Wan Kenobi's battle with the Acklay is a tribute to what scene in what movie?

tagmac
10-14-2004, 04:56 PM
It's not TC-14, considering droids really aren't male or female. And Tey How I believe was considered female. I'm actually surprised no one's guessed this yet.

dr_evazan22
10-14-2004, 05:03 PM
The Tonnika Brothers? Again, I'll let someone else ask a question for me.

Okay, this is a complete shot in the dark, but is it a trick question with the answer being Boushh?

Mr. JabbaJohnL
10-14-2004, 05:54 PM
Somebody else already said it, but I wanted to make a few corrections.
First in ANH - C-3PO - "Did you hear that? They've shut down the main reactor."
Last in ROTJ (original edition) - Leia - "He's my brother."
Last in ROTJ (SE/DVD) - Coruscant citizen - "The son of the suns!!!" (thank god it's not "Weesa free!" :crazed: )
First in TPM - Qui-Gon - "Captain." (the "Tell them we wish to board at once" comes only after Madakor says "Sir?")

Also, I am so glad they changed the song for the SE . . . or are those the lyrics to the current one?

tagmac
10-14-2004, 08:03 PM

I didn't know that, so I guess it means there were 3 characters. After the original ESB Emperor, there is still one major character I'm looking for. Whomever gets it can ask the next question.

Slicker

Thanks for the update, JJ. Off the top of my head, I wasn't exactly sure where the "Sir" came into it during the opening exchange from TPM, so I included the second line.

I think somebody already said that. But while we're on the subject, wasn't he also played by a man sometimes? Or, maybe one of those people thinks they played Greedo but really played some regular old Rodian in Mos Eisley? Hmm?

Devastator, right?You are correct sir.

During the original shooting of ANH Greedo was played by a man but in the pick up shots of the cantina Marie DeAragon (sp?) played him.

B'Omarr Monkey
10-17-2004, 04:44 PM
Bel-Cam Jos, you are in the right ballpark.

Greedo was palyed by a man during all of the cantina shots that involved the cantina as a whole, using the bar, etc., and possibly the same guy in the same costume as a different Rodian, for some of the exterior Mos Eisley shots. Maria de Aragon played Greedo in the shots where Greedo was talking to Han in the booth, though not necessarily all of them. This was because the main set was shot in England, and the various insert shots of the cantina patrons sitting around their tables were shot in California. This is why in the wide shots of teh Cantina you do not see the Cantina band or Momaw Nadon. They weren't there.

I believe at the time that Maria de Aragon was also GL's secretary.

Speaking of the Cantina, we still don't have any takers on my first question.

Bel-Cam Jos
10-17-2004, 07:42 PM
Bel-Cam Jos, you are in the right ballpark.

Speaking of the Cantina, we still don't have any takers on my first question.I think I have the right film, but was there a fight with giant crabs? Or some lizard? I thought it was the skeletons, but then the acklay would probably be more human. Am I right, B'OM?

And, what was your "first question?" I thought it was answered. I'm confuzzed... :confused:

JediTricks
10-17-2004, 11:25 PM
In Ray Harryhausen's "Mysterious Island", a guy fights a huge stop-motion crab monster by thrusting a spear upwards towards it, the Obi-Wan vs Acklay scene in AOTC is a direct homage to that, although I believe the angles are mirrored (Obi-Wan attacks the Acklay to the right of the screen while the guy fights the crab on the left of the screen).


"The 7th Voyage of Sinbad", has a scene that is paid homage in an OT Star Wars film. What is the film, and what is the scene?

JediTricks is correct. The Acklay battle with Obi-Wan was a direct homage to the fight with the giant crab in "Mysterious Island." The angle is the same. The only thing that differed was that the crab was holding someone in its claw at the time. The Acklay was not.

As for my first question....

It's probably not the "obvious" answer, but I'm gonna go out on a limb here:
a. Lav Sivrak
b. The Wolfman

I'll give you half for that on part a. It was actually the other "wolfman" character in the cantina, the one that actually looks more like a bat (he has the glowing red eyes). I don't think he has a name. Rick Baker called it a "bat demon' mask, which he made for another movie, not SW, though it went unused. The charcter also incorporated the body suit from "Shlock!" with the hands from the baby from "It's Alive."

In related trivia, the Cantian Alien called "The Terminal Man" (The one with the grey face, more or less human in appearance, with all the veins sticking out on it started out as a Halloween mask that Rick Baker made for himself.There are some really good pictures of both these creations in Cinefex #16, which was the Rick Baker issue. If I can dig mine out, I'll scan and post them.

As for part b. -- The movie was not "The Wolf Man" though, nor is it any werewolf movie.

There were three? I know there was a nearly-extinct offshoot of either Thai or Vietnamese that composes the bulk of the languages, and I'd guess a Native American language of some sort, but I'm confused as to a third.

Galactic Phrase Book & Travel Guide: Beeps, Bleats, Boskas, and Other Common Intergalactic Verbiage (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0345440749/qid=1098493909/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/104-6171296-5663900?v=glance&s=books), by Ben Burtt. The first part (the dictionary) is humorous, so it's not entirely scary Trekkie-type stuff, and it has cool cartoons by Sergio Aragones. But the second part, a lengthy essay by Burtt about how he came up with the languages, is worth the price alone.

Here's a two-part question about SW's influence in pop culture:

First, identify the Star Wars reference(s) in each of Kevin Smith's films (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, and Jersey Girl). Second, what number pops up 1138-style in most of Smith's movies?

OK, clerks is with out a doubt the Second DS and the independent contractors.

Gotta think of the rest.

Rocketboy

Clerks - The Death Star conversation.
Mallrats - Silent Bob attempting the Jedi Mind Trick throughout the movie.
Chasing Amy - Hooper's rant about the blatant racism in Star Wars ("F**k Lando Calrissian!")
Dogma - Jay comparing himself, Bethany and Bob in the diner to the cantina scene.
Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back - Mark Hamil (and the bong/lightsaber duel) and Carrie Fisher, "Someone with the 'net handle of 'Wampa1'," "The worst idea since Greedo shooting first," Jay's story about Dante and Randal's Stormtrooper wedding, The opening nod to "A Long Time Ago...," and the title itself.
Jersey Girl - Gertie tells Ollie "Punch it Chewie!" when she gets in the street sweeper.
Clerks Uncensored (AKA The Animated Series) - Mulptiple references in every episode, but 2 great ones were: their black friend Lando that appears randomly and dispenses advice, and the ghosts of Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Yoda ignoring the ghost of Charles Barkley ("That's cold Obi-Wan").

This was a fun thread and I'm gonna try and get it going again. Same rules apply you answer one you create one.

1. What is the name of the Cantina that Luke, Ben, and the droids go into?

2. What does Han lovingly call 3PO when they're making the mad dash to the Falcon trying to get out of Echo Base?

3. What part(s) of the body get cut off in each of the 5 movies? A sick obsession of Lucas' I think.

1) Chalmun's

Threepio gets jacked up in every movie. I think Lucas hates him.
TPM - No skin (or eye at one point)

ANH - Arm falls off
EBS - Blasted apart
ROTJ - Eye chewed out

I took the question to mean what specific body part whose removal was in all 5 films, I struggled for a few minutes to come up with that TPM one because it's the only film without an arm-chopping so far.


So anyway, this one will probably be too easy, but...

Well, maybe a list of who does have a theme might help.
Ben? Yes. "Force Theme" (?)
Vader? Yes. "Imperial March"
Luke? Yes. "Force Theme" (?)
Leia? Yes. "Love Theme" (?)
Yoda? Yes. "Yoda's Theme"
Jabba? Yes. Uh... "Jabba's Theme" (?)

Jawas? Yes. "The Little People Work"
Han? Not sure.
Lando? I thought so. "City in the Clouds" (?)
Chewie? Not sure.
R2? Not sure.
Threepio? Not sure.
Emperor? Yes. Uh... "Emperor's Theme" (?)
Teek? Hmm... :rolleyes: "Little Red Corvette" (?) "I Can't Drive 55" (?) "Runnin' With the Devil" (?) :p

As for the ones who share one, I'd go with Han and Leia.

Well, Leia has her own theme, the incredibly creatively-titled "Princess Leia's Theme." However she does also share "Han Solo and the Princess" with, obviously, Han Solo.

Weird how several of the themes also apply to other characters, though. Like when a souped-up version of Princess Leia's Theme is playing when Ben dies, and Han Solo and the Princess when Luke and Leia are standing on the frigate in ESB.

Come on, more questions!

If you go by the new dialog Anakin's name is mentioned in the DVD's. The Emperor says something along the lines of "I have no doubts he is the offspring of Anakin Skywalker". And I did miss Hobbie. Thanks for the help now to figure out who the other is.

"Did you find any droids?"
"If this is a counsular ship, then where is the ambassador?"
"Wha-?!?"

ESB
"You found something?"
"Is he alive?"
"What is thy bidding, my master?"
"Perhaps you feel you're being treated unfairly?"

"What of the reports of the Rebels massing near Sullust?"
"Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?"

This is a tough one (Unless kidhuman's answers were right).

If this is a consular ship...were is the Ambassador?
What do you mean?
Did you find any droids?
What?

The Empire Strikes Back - 7
You found something?
What is it, General?
Yes, Admiral?
Yes, Admiral, what is it?
What is thy bidding, my master?
Well, Calrissian, did he survive?
Did your men deactivate the hyperdrive on the Millennium Falcon?

Return of the Jedi - 5
What is thy bidding, my Master?
What of the reports of the Rebel fleet massing near Sullust?
Where is that shuttle going?
Do they have a code clearance?
He will come to me?

And if you go by the DVDs, bump that number up one for "How is that possible?" But then again, every time I mention the DVDs, people get angry. ;)

BCJ, interesting last one, I don't think Vader ever did make it to Sesame Street, poor bastar... anyway, there is no "is he alive" line, though I'm fairly sure you're thinking of a line that sounds very similar.



And if you go by the DVDs, bump that number up one for "How is that possible?" But then again, every time I mention the DVDs, people get angry. I specifically framed the question to avoid mention of those wretched DVD versions by saying "How many questions does Vader ask in each of the original versions of the OT?"

So close, but not quite correct, and I'm so tempted to show which one, but someone's gonna get it any time now.

I'd guess that maybe something Obi-Wan says, or... wait! I've got it! You know that part in the film in the Death Star meeting room where Vader points at Tarkin but says nothing? There it is. And here it is:

What are the only 2 Rebel ships ever mentioned by specific classification designation in the OT, and where in the films are they mentioned? (Clarifying: not by name like "Tantive IV" or "Home 1", but by designation like "Rebel Blockade Runner" or "T-16")

How about T-47 (as in they're having problems adjusting them to the cold) and the medical frigate?

Kidhuman

I dont think the medical frigate was ever called that in the movie, just the rendevouz point. And I might be wrong, but it wasnt a ship strictly for medical purposes, so that wasnt called the Medical Frigate.

The SD's were also mentioned, this wasn't the first instance though. I didn't realize the Rebels had Star Destroyers. ;)


Ok, I felt "medical frigate" wasn't specific enough of a classification designation to count, I gave this a lot of thought when I wrote the question and went back and forth on whether to count it, ultimately putting "specific classification designation" to counter the inherent vagueness the question would have had without it (otherwise "transport", another answer given here, or even "stolen Imperial shuttle" might also have counted). This is also why I put examples in there. The question seems to have been more confusing than I hoped though, so if nobody gets the answer by tomorrow, I'll just say it and you can all tell me why I'm wrong for counting it that way. ;)

Well, since I've clearly killed this thread yet again, the other answer is "X-wing class", as in the line, "Lord Vader, ship approaching, X-wing class" from ESB.


Here's probably another hard one: Peter Cushing - who is known to us as Grand Moff Tarkin - starred with Christopher Lee - known to us as Count Dooku - in a number of Hammer Films flicks from England. In many, Cushing and Lee are enemies, but in one of them, Cushing's character is working throughout the film to save Lee's character's life. What film is it?

Here's a hopefully less difficult one: At an earlier point in ANH's development, the concept of Cloud City played what role in the film?

#2 - Like the Death Star space station, maybe?I'm going to say "no" to that even though in the broadest sense it's sorta not wrong. I'm going to leave this one open till I next log in (probably Sunday, by then I'm sure someone will have gotten it, and even if not, another question should be thrown into the mix to keep things fun anyway).


KH, "Nothing but the Night" is not a Hammer Film, it in fact was done by Lee's production company. "Scream and Scream Again" is also not a Hammer Film. I guess I'll just spill the beans on this one now, the movie was "The Hound of the Baskervilles", with Cushing playing Sherlock Holmes trying to save Lee as Sir Henry, the newest (and last) heir to the Baskerville estate... and it's curse! The movie was not the standard horror fare from Hammer Films and unfortunately audiences didn't care for that which killed the Holmes franchise for Cushing that they were trying for.

IG-88's head is one of the oddball items that make up the crazy bar contraptions behind Wuher, there are actually several similarly-shaped items to 88's head, but one that clearly is the exact same piece.


Burl Ives was the narrator for The Ewok Adventure TV movie.

If Noa is an EU character then I can pretty much speak for Rocketboy and say that's not it.

And for the character that wears braces that would be that ugly girl that's one of little Ani's friends. I don't know her name but she's shown when he's trying to get the Pod going.

I assume both Anakin's blue and his green? Not counting Anakin's use of it in ROTS, there's: the Tauntaun's belly, the AT-AT's belly, Boba's gun, Boba's rope, the speeder bike, Vader's hand. So I count six from memory, though I don't know if the incidents with Vader's shoulder and the skiff guards would count or not.

JediTricks
01-05-2005, 06:35 PM
There are more, but that's a good list. Some of Jabba's guards didn't get cut that we saw, it was more like a baseball bat, so they wouldn't count. Vader's shoulder would count though as we see he is hurt by it and sparks fly, I'm counting that as a cut.

Vader's head on Dagobah . . . and I'm drawing a blank.

dr_evazan22
01-07-2005, 06:19 PM
It looks like so far we have from ESB:

- Ice holding Luke's feet
- Wampa's arm
- Taun Taun belly
- AT AT belly
- Vader's head on Dagobah
- Debris on Cloud City
- Vader's shoulder

I'll add the handrail on Cloud City. Luke's and Vader's sabers are together and get pushed down and either cut or spark the rail.

In ROTJ so far we have:

- Boba's gun
- Boba's rope
- Speederbike
- Vader's hand

And here I'll add again the handrail, Luke's saber cuts thru both Vader's hand and the rail.

So that's 13. Any more missing? Any wrong?

JediTricks
01-07-2005, 06:32 PM
Nope, that's right, the handrail on the DS2 and fake Vader's head on Dagobah were the 2 I was looking for, though good call with the railing on Bespin, I gave that one some thought and wasn't sure which way to go with it.

I'll take your word for it, but lots of EU things have been changed by the prequels. I just figured they were highly trained versions of the blue Coruscant Guards, for Palpatine only.

On the A-Wing I'm gonna say they were originally blue. Being that anything blue in color in front of a bluescreen comes out black. Check out R2 in ANH in the Trench. His normally blue parts on his dome are black.
