Good Star Wars fans will know that the distant galaxy is full of Easter eggs and references, such as the wonderful ET appearing in ‘The Phantom Menace’. And apparently it resembles that we even have real phone numbers. The of Mark Hamill to be correct. Where? In the first installment.
Through Twitter, editor Jordan D White recalled an excerpt from an interview with Mark Hamill in which the performer (actor) remembers how Harrison Ford completed up saying Hamill’s phone as the serial number necessary to escape the garbage disposal. Something the actor himself asked for:
In the scene where we tried to get out of the garbage disposal, I was supposed to say, ‘3PO, open the …’ and I give you this long serial number. So I had planned all along to say ‘2-‘ so that my own number would be preserved forever in the movie.
However, as Hamill continues to tell, the scene in question ended with Harrison Ford saying that line. Who, at Skywalker’s insistence, gave in to the Easter Egg and recited the phone number of his co-star:
“Finally, Harrison read my number and said, ‘Are you happy now, big baby?’ And I laughed because he had been acting like a two-year-old.”
You are going to do the same as us, right? Find that moment to listen to Ford sneaking in on us that was Hamill’s phone number forty years ago.
