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!
Awesome set designer is awesome
I probably wouldn't have noticed that
Ha awesome. Confirmed by Lucas by any chance?
Very cool !
was also in close encounters.
Yes i did….
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".
Awesome find. Love when directors do this
IIRC, THX-1138 was the licence plate of his first car.
🙂 said that in the post .. 🙂
That's C3PO beside him in those pics, too, to the right.
+Amanda Blain Heh! That's what happens when you're reading 3 pages at the same time!! 🙂
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.
What is it
Hhahah thats neat 🙂
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.
Weird; I've never heard this before!
May the force be with you Indie.
Ok, so it's Han Solo, not Indie
Use the force.
and C3PO is next to him on the right.
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)
It's too bad that 'Temple of Doom' was awful.
I like That
isn't the bar at the beginning of the movie called Club OB-1?
I'll be damed!.. Starwars did happen a long time ago!
R2-D2 was also in the latest Star Trek movie.
+Amanda Blain! That is an awesome post! I never realized it! And I've seen these movies at least 100 times! (well SW E4 about 100 times).
Lol, its been said twice before!
Haha wow that is literally one of the coolest things ever
That's an easter egg.
attention to detail! impressive.
+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 !!
that is awesome I love both of his moves
