Male Deaths[]

Female Deaths[]



  1. During filming, Ewan McGregor made lightsaber noises as he dueled. It was noted and corrected during post-production.
  2. Keira Knightley's parents tried to convince her not to audition, but the 12 year-old actress still sought a role, given she was a Star Wars fan.
  3. Sets were built only as high as the tops of the actors' heads and computer graphics filled in the rest. Liam Neeson was so tall, that he cost the set crew an extra 150,000 dollars in construction.
  4. Natalie Portman's voice was digitally enhanced to distinguish between Padmé and Queen Amidala. Portman (Queen Amidala) missed the premiere party in New York City, because she had to go home to study for her high school final exams.
  5. Benicio Del Toro was originally set to play Darth Maul. Del Toro left the film after George Lucas took most of Maul's lines out of the film. He would finally join the Star Wars franchise 18 years later when he played DJ in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017).
