Do you know which character says “The Force” the most throughout the “Star Wars” film saga or how long it would take you to consume every “Star Wars” movie, TV show, novel, and comic book?
If you think you know a lot about “Star Wars,” you may want to think again. Entertainment Weekly Creative Director Tim Leong put together a collection of over 75 fun infographics, bar charts, and pie charts that dissect the “Star Wars” universe.
“Star Wars Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to A Galaxy Far, Far Away” tackles everything from listing the fastest ships in the galaxy (the A-wing starfighter) to a definitive ranking of lightsabers (the Grand Inquistor’s and Darth Maul’s take the cake). Some of the charts are funny — one illustrates R2-D2 telling Luke his chances of survival in “Empire Strikes Back” are 725 to 1 — while others include heavy research and offer insights into the saga you may not have considered otherwise.
Chronicle Books shared several of the fun infographics with INSIDER for the book’s release Tuesday, July 25, breaking down the opening crawl and Rey’s “The Force Awakens” vision better than we’ve ever seen. Next time you watch a “Star Wars” film, keep these things in mind.
While you may be waiting for the opening crawl to end before the start of each movie, how much do you really know about it?
The crawl in “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens” has the most words of any movie. It’s also interesting that “Episode VI — Return of the Jedi” is the only film to use three periods in the elipses at the end of the credits instead of four.
In case you ever wanted to recreate the opening on your own, the two fonts used are News Gothic Bold (for the text) and Univers 49 UltraCondensed Light (for each film’s title).
Yoda has said “The Force” the most in every “Star Wars” movie, but he only said it one more time than Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The term was used the most in the original “Star Wars” movie and “Episode III.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Force is mentioned the most by the light side of the Force instead of the dark.
This is the most thorough breakdown of Rey’s vision in “The Force Awakens” we’ve ever seen. It points out some things we never noticed.
Did you realize Emperor Palpatine has a line in Rey’s vision? Go back and take a listen and it happens at 1:06:13 in the movie! It’s not in the closed captioning, but it’s there right as Kylo Ren starts walking towards Rey.
The breakdown also confirms that Luke and R2-D2 are outside a temple (a Jedi temple?) that has a nearby fire. It supports our theory that Luke was training a group of young Jedi before they were slain by Kylo Ren and his warriors.
Two more lines which don’t appear with the closed captions on are three lines from Obi-Wan Kenobi from “Episode V”: “You will be tempted,” “But you cannot control it,” and “You will do it …”
