Notes

Film

  • Ben uses the Jedi mind trick on the Stormtroopers.
  • The team stands on the edge of the cliff looking at Mos Eisley.
  • Mos Eisley - "A wretched hive of scum and villiany" - Ben.
  • The team drive in to Mos Eisley.
  • This sequence was massively changed in the Special Edition of the film.

Podcast

  • Luke's quick transition to The Force. Ben seduced Luke very quickly.
  • Luke as a sucker or easy-mark.
  • Ben not actually knowing anything and just tricking Luke the whole time.
  • Ben should have reacted more strongly to Luke's line "I want to be like my father".
  • The team stopping at Mos Eisley to use the toilet.
  • Ben and Luke peeing off the cliff. Lush plants growing at the bottom of the cliff. The richest moisture farmer on Tatooine.
  • Vaseline on the lens under the Lanspeeder. Rumour or truth?
  • The original, sleepy Mos Eisley versus the Special Edition, bustling Mos Eisley.
  • A list of changes to the Mos Eisley sequence in the Special Edition/s.
  • Luke not having a Driver's License.
  • Ben offering the droids for sale to the Stormtroopers; what would have happened if they bought them.
  • The humming sound effect in the background of the mind trick scene.
  • Tractor beams.
