Did you know that R2D2 from Star Wars actually made 2 guest appearances in Raiders of the Lost Ark ? (both George Lucas films)

They are subtle but you can see them below, if you've never seen it before 🙂 Click for a larger picture.

Also in Temple of Doom The name of the night club is Club Obi-Wan . 🙂

Now you know!

Get out your BluRay of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, flip to the scene when the mother ship does a 180, and look at all the Star Wars toys glued to it. Hysterical.

Lucas has a habit of putting these kinds of "Easter Eggs" in his movies. The number "1138" (a reference to "THX-1138") is in most of his movies. If you look closely in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", the club that Indiana escapes from in the beginning is called "Club Obi-Wan".

IIRC, THX-1138 was the licence plate of his first car.

George Lucas also promised Spielburg he'd pay him back for the Yoda cameo in E.T., where Spielburg incorporated SW figures in the scenes.  In Episod I: The Phantom Menace, you can see several "E.T." creatures (a.k.a. Children of the Green) in one of the Senate scenes.

Yes, I'm a bit of a SW fan.

George Lucas is secretly trying to tell his viewers that it's all Ancient Egyptian and that Ancient Egyptian has always been the source. These hidden symbols within symbols are known as hidden knowledge.

I shouldn't be surprised, but I am.  I remember reading about how intertwined the Pixar characters are, and each film gives hints about future films but including characters. (www.squidoo.com/pixarsecrets)

+Amanda Blain 1973 ( four years before Star Wars ) George Lucas produced and co-wrote American Graffiti … Harrison Ford (!) plays Bob Falfa (!!) and his car license plate is "THX 138" (!!!)  … way to go, George !!
