– This week, we uncover some
of the unknown of Star Wars. – Plus, BB-8 gets even cuter. I know. It’s crazy. [MUSIC PLAYING] – This is “The Star Wars Show.” From the Lucasfilm
headquarters in San Francisco, here’s your hosts,
Andi and Anthony. – Hello, and welcome to
“The Star Wars Show,” the only Star Wars
show on the internet celebrating its 150th episode. You know what that means, Gutz. – Please, not another song. – Hit the music. – No, we are not doing
a song this time. – Come on. We’ve got to give the
viewers what they want, what they really, really want. – No. And not with the ’90s
references either. Let’s go to the news. – Zigazig ah. Do you love Jedi and secrets? Well, we have the book for you. “The Secrets of the
Jedi” is a new book that takes a closer
look at the Jedi Order and how it changed over the
eras as told by none other than Jedi master Luke Skywalker. I guess he’s real. – Written by Marc Sumerak, the
book is filled with history of the noble order
of peacekeepers, secrets of the Force, the art
of mastering the lightsaber, as well as in-depth information
about our favorite Jedi, including Ahsokatano, Anakin
Skywalker, Plo Koon, and more. – What about Kit Fisto? – Yes, Kyle. They have Kit Fisto, too. [LIGHTSABERS BUZZING] [DING] – You can pick up “The
Secrets of the Jedi” starting November 19, 2019. But to find out more
information now, you can head to – Star Wars Kids, the
official Star Wars channel for the younglings
in the house, has debuted a slew of
brand new series that are fun for the whole family. – One series, called
“Let’s Draw Star Wars,” is hosted by Lucasfilm
artists and will teach you how to, you know, draw Star Wars. – Naturally. These art troopers are
joined by droid R3-A-3, who draws along but usually
ends up with a silly version of what the artist drew. – If you aren’t interested
in drawing Star Wars but instead want
to make Star Wars, there’s also a show
for you, and it is called “Let’s Make Star Wars.” It’s hosted by Sean, Marissa,
and helper droid R3-A3, and they’ll walk you through
easy and fun step-by-step instructions that
show you how to make exciting Star Wars crafts. – Both shows can be
found on
on Mondays. – Plus, an adorable new series
starring BB-8 is coming to Star Wars Kids called
“Star Wars Roll Out,” animated by Hideo Atoyinagi. The lighthearted, bite-sized
shorts follow Rey, BB-8, Finn, and others on their adventures. – Each episode has a
mix of humor, scares, action, and surprising oddness. Let’s take a look. [MUSIC PLAYING] [ROBOTIC CHIRPING] [GROWLING] [ROBOTIC CHIRPING] [SQUEALING] [ROARING] [ROBOTIC CHIRPING] – You can catch
“Star Wars Roll Out” starting Friday, August
9th on and – Our friends at ILMxLAB will
be bringing “Vader Immortal” to D23 Expo with
a panel that will give attendees a first look at
episode two of the VR series. – Panel guests
Director Ben Snow, Senior Experience
Designer Jose Perez III, and Lucasfilm Story Group
Member Matt Martin– never heard of them– will
take the stage on Friday, August 23rd at
2:00 PM to deliver all that Vader goodness. – You know, speaking of
ILMxLAB, they recently had an interesting
visitor who looked very similar to a character
from their newest VR titled “Vader Immortal.” Let’s see who it was. [MUSIC PLAYING] – My name’s Jai, and I made
Admiral Karius out of “Vader Immortal” episode one. And I’ve come here to
Lucasfilm and ILMxLAB to have a tour around and
to show off my costume to everyone who worked on
“Vader Immortal” episode one. I saw the trailer for “Vader
Immortal,” and I was like, I need to make this
costume a reality. I posted my progress
on my Instagram, and then a couple
of weeks later, I got a message from the
ILMxLAB’s Facebook page saying that they’ve been
watching my progress and wanted to see
me at Lucasfilm. I had a tour around Lucasfilm,
and I loved every single thing. Seeing the costumes and where
stuff’s made and produced has been a dream
of mine, as well. It’s been amazing. I don’t have a Rift
or Quest at home, and this was my first time
experiencing “Vader Immortal.” And seeing Admiral Karius
up close in the experience was amazing. He’s a lot taller
than I thought. Well, I’m quite short,
anyway, so the height is definitely there. You feel his presence as an
admiral in the Imperial Navy. So, it’s a lot more
intimidating than you actually think once you’re
watching it on a screen. And once you’re
in the experience, it’s a lot more intense. I couldn’t believe
that any of this would be possible just by making
a costume from Vader models. And getting to
actually experience it myself for the
first time, it’s been an amazing opportunity. [SQUEALING] – Electrical wires hooked
up to a queen’s dress. A Cola can on Naboo. The words New York
on a light saber. While these real world
objects may seem out of place in a galaxy far, far away,
they’re there in the background making unannounced cameos. Believe it. Join me these next
few minutes as we explore the unexplained,
the uncredited, and the Star Wars unknown. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Star Wars saga
has been filled with cameos for generations. Some are more
well-known than others. Some go unnoticed. And a few are hidden
in plain sight. Dating back to 1977,
the original trilogy featured the likes
of Boba Fett designer slash director of the
horse classic “Hidalgo” Joe Johnston, who played
an imperial technician. A similar role
was later reprised by the director of “The
Last July,” Rian Johnson. – Wasn’t he also the writer
of the short film “Evil Demon Golfball From Hell!!!”? – That’s right. But those weren’t the
only famous filmmaker cameos in Star Wars. Sofia Coppola found time between
directing “The Virgin Suicides” to appear as one of Padmé
Amidala’s handmaidens. Edgar Wright, the director
of such films as “Shaun of the Dead,” played the
role of a resistance fighter in “The Last Jedi.” However, directing wasn’t always
enough for some filmmakers. Some even made cameos
in their own films. – I created this
great world, but I didn’t have the fun of being
able to run around in it. Now that I knew the
world and I could see it, it brings up all kinds
of ideas of things. – And running around
that world he did. George Lucas and his
family all made appearances throughout the
Star Wars prequels. – It’s pronounced prequels. – They grow up so fast. Whereas “Return of
the Jedi” director Richard Marquand
played Major Newland and provided the
voice of EV-9D9. “Rogue One” director Gareth
Edwards appeared in his film along with “The last Jedi.” Another blink and you’ll
miss it cameo in “Rogue One” was our very own Chopper. Here’s what he had to say
about his time on set. [INDISTINCT ROBOTIC SPEECH] Wow. That sounds like a great time. And you know who else
had a great time on set? Photoshop co-creator and 10 time
Lucasfilm Company picnic egg toss winner John Knoll, who
showed up multiple times in different roles. However, there are other cameos
that are hidden in plain sight, like when the Jar Jar and
C-3PO actors were allowed out of their restrictive
costumes and into something more casual when they showed
up in “Attack of the Clones” and again, in the case of
Anthony Daniels, in “Solo” or when Mark Hamill’s children
showed up in “The Last Jedi.” One great Star Wars unknown that
remains unsolved to this day is whether Daniel
Craig was smiling inside his stormtrooper
helmet, but some mysteries are best left unsolved. Until next time. Goodnight. – You’re–
– –watching– – –“The–
– –Star– – –Wars–
– –Show.” – Who knew that Star Wars was
filled with so many mysteries? I love how many times
John Knoll popped up throughout the movies. – Yeah. – Also, 10 time Lucasfilm
picnic egg toss winner? – Yeah.
– That is a man of many talents. – Seriously. My favorite, of
course, has to be when Chopper made his big
appearance in “Rogue One.” – Sure. Yes, that was very good,
even though it totally went to his head and he does not
return my phone calls anymore. But I am not bitter. – OK. Well, we want to know
what your favorite Star Wars Easter eggs are. Let us know using the
hashtag #swsunknown and we’ll feature our
favorites here next week. – And, as always, remember
to like the video, subscribe to the channel,
follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. And for every mystery,
there is someone somewhere who knows the truth. Perhaps that
someone is watching. Perhaps it’s you. – Thanks for watching, and
may the Force be with you. – Seriously. He sits at a different
table now in the cafeteria. – Chopper or John Knoll? – Both. [BLASTING] [BEEP] – Until next time, good night. [BEEP] [SIGH] [CREAKING] [BANG] [GROAN] Let’s see. Where are we here? [MUMBLING] [SIGH] [MUSIC PLAYING] [SIGH] Still on the moon. I wonder if they’re
still doing the old show. [BEEP] [MECHANICAL WHIRRING AND

  1. I honestly was interested inside the millennium falcon there’s a carved in of the Batmobile in episode 7

  2. Joe Johnston also played both spacetroopers in ANH and had a speaking role as a Rebel soldier in Echo Base in TESB

  3. The X-Wing and TIE Fighters way down below on Coruscant chasing each other during the speeder chase in Attack of the Clones. Go listen to the audio commentary, they point it out. How is this possible? Is the World Between Worlds in play? #SWSUNKNOWN

  4. Loved seeing all the Easter Eggs, Most hard core fans new most of them but fun to see new ones! Another Great Show

  5. Wow. So many hidden guest stars throughout the whole saga. Also I didn’t know that Mark Hamill’s children were in the Last Jedi.


  7. Peter Townley!!! The original The STAR WARS Show co-host!!! Nice to see you again! 😁😁😁

    And so happy I'm getting a second job so I can save up for Secrets of the Jedi, Triple Force Friday, EPISODE IX multiple viewings, and for SW Celebration 2020, and much more! Thank you The Force!

  8. Definitely excited for clone wars season 7 and rise of Skywalker movie and the next Star Wars movie in 2022 I hope it’s old republic movie

  9. dont you love how litterally everything disney makes constantly avoids the prequel trilogy, and focuses most on its sequel trilogy, which honestly is my least favorite, it brings nothing new to the table (well nothing good) I don't care that much about the story, because even though I think the sequels are WAY better than the prequels. the prequels add so much more to the table

  10. "Do you like secrets about this franchise? Well here is something you can buy for $20's and some random person(s) will tell you about them."

    I love this franchise and have defended most of it countless times. This felt so "corporate" to me I can't defend it. Star Wars should be better than this. It is easy to say I am just some hater but I am not. Please don't go down this path……

  11. Be aware! fake fans are in these comment sections. Fans from Geeks and Gamers. Do not take them seriously.

  12. KIT FISTO!!! My favorite easter egg is the one where Andi & Anthony make an appearance in the Rise of Skywalker. Oh wait, that hasn't happened yet; well it should 😉

  13. Mark Hamill's children had to watch their father's character get insulted and disrespected by Disney as it happened?
    How despicable!

  14. More Star Wars Unknown please. And make sure he keeps putting his hands in his pocket. Every. Single. Time. LMAO!!!

  15. Well in the first episide after Peter left Andi said he was back from the moon and would make appearences from time to time, guess she was mistaken about the moon part. Only took a couple years for him to show up again lol.

  16. My favorite Easter egg was when the pod from 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY showed up in the back of Watto's junk shop! 🚀🌚😁

  17. Hey, that was the guy that hosted the first year before Anthony came on (you can tell by the eyes)! Too funny! Love the #swsunknown segment!

  18. 1:02 ahahaah) JEDY academy) vader immortal need see) 8:09 intresting no have grafic> only costumes & create good cinema

  19. The best Star Wars show on YouTube while sitting down on the couch with a British cup of tea and a bit of cake can’t go wrong with that. 🤣🤣🤣

  20. There aren't any characters in the new movies I can relate to, so I haven't been interested in your new movies.

  21. Um they misspelled Star, it’s spelled Rey. Rey Wars is in full Woke mode. I bet Disney uses time travel so Rey can “ bring balance” by fixing what all the dumb men did.

  22. Sounds cool but I read the article on the webpage and you go out of your way to describe that Luke is no longer an optimistic guy. Which considering how TLJ did him dirty is pretty unnecessary and redundant at this point. Why re-open the wound?

  23. I was literally thinking at the beginning of this video, whatever happened to the older guy? (It’s been so long, I forgot his name!) And then he shows up in the video! Crazy!!! I also love the whole “old-school documentary” style you’re going for in that segment. So hilarious. You guys have some great ideas!

  24. You had me at Star Wars Show! And then you bring P.T. back! WHAT!!! … Nice! And yeah my post is late but, real-life ya know
