I generally someone who defends the idea that SW is fantasy and not proper sci-fi, but EC Henry’s latest video makes some interesting observations about how ANH was much more “scientific” than what SW later evolved into. He’s doesn’t mention the early drafts, but it’s interest in hindsight how the they seemed to flip between sci-fi and fantasy ideas, until Lucas finally settled for a somewhat more fantastical approach and then doubled down on the idea in the following films.

Very well put. In the rough draft even “the Force” was sort of a general precognition thing, but not telekinesis, lightning, etc. The Jedi were fantastic warriors because they were super well trained, like DUNE’s Bene Gesserit or Sardaukar.

But the second draft veers hard into mysticism, making Force powers much more like magic and putting a heavy emphasis on it being passed down via familial lineage, which later drafts actually dial back.

“That Darth Vader, man. Sure does love eating Jedi.”

The Failed Experiment That Won Star Wars Sound Designer Ben Burtt An Oscar

Companion Article:

"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas
