Added DiffLines:

* SerendipityWritesThePlot: Grand Moff Tarkin is mostly seen from the waist up because the boots provided for Creator/PeterCushing's Imperial uniform were too small for him. So, he primarily wore slippers while shooting his scenes.

Added DiffLines:

* EnforcedMethodActing: Stuntman Peter Diamond played the Tusken Raider who attacks Luke. However, he was blinded by the headgear and couldn't see where he was swinging his weapon. The look of fear on Mark Hamill's face is real.

** The role of [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan Kenobi]] was originally written with Creator/ToshiroMifune in mind. Depending on who you talk to, either 20th Century Fox wasn't keen on giving Mifune another whirl (although Mifune could speak English, all productions where he was speaking English ended up dubbing over his voice due to his thick Japanese accent) or Mifune wasn't available. Either way, the role went instead to Alec Guinness. Creator/PeterCushing was also considered to star as Obi-Wan Kenobi before being cast as Grand Moff Tarkin.

* AdaptationFirst: Both [[NovelizationFirst the novelization]] and the Creator/MarvelComics adaptation came out before the movie. Given they're based on earlier scripts, there discrepancies, particularly in the comic.

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Creator/CarrieFisher recalls that she could not generate the level of hatred that Princess Leia would have been feeling towards Grand Moff Tarkin, because she had to deliver those lines to Creator/PeterCushing, who was an admirable gentleman. She also like to draw attention to the irony of her "foul stench" line as Cushing always smelled of lavender and fresh linen.

* DyeingForYourArt: Anthony Daniels had to wear the C-3PO costume under the scorching Tunisian sun, the actress who played Greedo nearly passed out after just a few minutes of wearing the suffocating mask, Creator/MarkHamill [[EyeScream burst a blood vessel in his eye]] filming the Dianoga scene, and William Hootkins (the actor who played Porkins) had to wear his pilot costume unfastened at the back because it was too small for him to wear, and they [[NoBudget couldn't afford to make another one.]]
