** And the Grand Moff Tarkin was played by PeterCushing, who was known to fans and co-workers alike as a sweet and kindhearted gentleman. Carrie Fisher allegedly had trouble bad-mouthing him because he was a pleasant man and because he was wearing slippers in the scene where Leia and Tarkin confront each other (he was shot from the waist up).

* TheOtherDarrin[=/=]OrwellianRetcon:
** In the original release of ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'', Palpatine was portrayed by Marjorie Eaton (sort of: Her appearance was superimposed with that of a Chimpanzee's eyes, and her voice, similar to that of Darth Vader's actor, would be dubbed over by Clive Revill). The DVD and Blu-Ray releases of ''The Empire Strikes Back'' would replace her with Ian [=McDiarmid=].
** Likewise, Boba Fett's voice was changed from Jason Wingreen's voice to Temuera Morrison's voice in the Original Trilogy's first DVD release to reflect Boba's status as a clone of his father, Jango Fett.
