10 Awkward Star Wars Moments That Must’ve Happened Off Screen
To be a fly on the wall when Han Solo remembered THAT kiss on Hoth...
Though Star Wars fans have had the displeasure of witnessing their fair share of jarring and frequently awkward moments unfold on both the big and small screen over the years - looking at you, "I don't like sand" - there are actually a boatload of unquestionably unsettling and/or hilariously tense instances that never wiggled their way into live or animated action at all.
Now, that's not to say that every one of these likely off-screen occurrences warranted their moment in the sun in cinemas or on a streaming service. But you'd be lying if you said you weren't even a little bit intrigued about what would have ultimately came to pass had a camera captured the following cringe-inducing or just plain awkward moments over the course of bringing the galaxy far, far away's many on screen projects to life.
From those questions that have puzzled you for the better part of four decades, to what must've gone down in order to bring some of the universe's most beloved moments into being, each and every one of these never-filmed Star Wars beats definitely possesses the ability to make you squirm in your seats.
10. Mando Reveals His Interactions With Luke Skywalker To Boba Fett
Amidst the hype and excitement that surrounded Luke Skywalker's return to the live action TV scene in this year's Book of Boba Fett, many a Star Wars fan largely overlooked one little detail that may have actually opened the door for a rather delicate conversation between two of Disney+'s most valuable entities at one point or another.
With the Jedi Master saving the day towards the end of The Mandalorian's second season, Din Djarin entrusts this mystical Force-user with the care and training of his little pal Grogu. But should the Beskar-sporting bounty hunter ever reveal this information to his fellow sharpshooting badass Boba Fett, you can bet the Daimyo would be somewhat conflicted over his interactions with Skywalker.
After all, Luke was very much involved in the scenario that resulted in Fett being sent plummeting into the Sarlacc Pit in Return of the Jedi. So, even though Fett's experiences post-Pit palaver have understandably softened the merciless killer in the time since the pair last came into contact, you can bet that the knowledge of Luke very much being connected to his Mandalorian ally will make for a potentially combustable conversation.
