George Lucas Discusses the Dogfights in Star WarsOctober 15th, 2013
George Lucas planned for a “space dogfight” in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope from early drafts of the screenplay. In this video, he discusses his reasons for including the dogfights and how he solved the problems of actually putting it onto film. As they say, the results speak for themselves. No word from Lucas as to how we could hear the fighters screaming through the vacuum of space.
