A boy dying of an incurable illness wanted to meet Luke Skywalker (in character). His mental state devolved to the point where he did not realize Luke was fictional. Mark Hamill agreed to dress up in character and meet the boy. He spent hours answering questions.

The crew of ‘Return of the Jedi’ mocked the character design of Admiral Ackbar, deeming it too ugly. Director Richard Marquand refused to alter it, saying, “I think it’s good to tell kids that good people aren’t necessarily good looking people and that bad people aren’t necessarily ugly people.”

While filming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, actor Oscar Isaac specifically requested that his character Poe Dameron be a native of the planet Yavin 4. This is because the scenes on Yavin 4 in the original trilogy were filmed in Guatemala, where Isaac is actually from.

I was born in Guatemala, and one of Guatemala’s biggest claims to fame is that Guatemala is featured in the end of ‘A New Hope,’ At the medal ceremony, that was filmed … in Tikal, Guatemala, said Isaac. “So I said, ‘How cool would it be if that’s where Poe was from?!’ You know, he’s a Rebel fighter, that’s where the Rebel base is, why wouldn’t he be there? That’s an incredible idea.”
