    It looks like there is a gap in the land during the "twin sunset" scene.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Got to agree here

    Although as someone said there probably is a back door or something? Either that or its broken down and will not work!

    Thumbs up

    Interesting question. And no, it doesn't really matter. But I like the back door idea.

    Talking Open the floodgates!

    Remember how depressed Luke was? And knowing he's been reckless with his flying? Well, Uncle Owen had to teach him a lesson so he sealed up his T-16 in a garage with no doors! That way, Luke could always be aware of how his mistakes are bad. Or, Ben told his brother Owen to make Luke use his latent Force abilities by trapping the ships/speeders in such a place.

    Okay, I've thought about it and here's my theory. Since the design of the Skyhopper was never actually seen in the movie, except in toy form (and we're never actually told that it is a Skyhopper) then maybe ol'George let the matte painting slide since no one in the audience was to supposed to know that's what was in the doorway, it could've been a hot water heater for all we knew. It wasn't until the Skyhopper model was seen close-up that people recognized the shape.

    Keep in mind back in 1976 ol'George was spending most of his time fighting with the studio to keep them from pulling the plug. So you're going to tell me a minor detail like that should have been utmost in his mind?

    It matters to me, I'm curious about such things.

    Barada, it's not a matte painting, it's an actual set piece, and it clearly corresponds to the model that Luke's playing with in shape and designs.

    When I first watched the movie I never even noticed the Skyhopper in the background. In fact I thought it was a SE addition! I've always just paid more attention to the characters acting out the scenes.

    The only logical explanation I can come up with, since you MUST have one, is that maybe the main doors have been buried by a recent sandstorm. In which case they'd have to be built flat with the ground. Crappy explanation but it's all I can come up with right now. Give me a couple of days to think it over.
