  Disney Is Basically Just Trying To Make Real X-Wings For Galaxy's Edge Now Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is at the cutting edge (heh) of reality imitating fiction, with Disney spending massive sums of money on converting a little pocket of its park to looking, feeling, tasting, and smelling like it’s really a part of the Star Wars universe, only with many more opportunities to give Disney your money.

Adam Driver feared he would be fired from Star Wars: The Force Awakens on day one after "swinging blind" in a fight scene with movie icon Max von Sydow.

The Marriage Story actor made his debut as Kylo Ren in the 2015 movie, and his first job during filming at London's Pinewood Studios was to attack von Sydow's Lor San Tekka in one of the opening scenes of the movie.

However, the Girls star worried he would cause serious injury to the veteran, who was 85 at the time, because he could barely see out of his character's iconic black and sliver mask.

"My first thing I had to do was kill Max von Sydow (onscreen)," he recalled to Rolling Stone magazine. "I have this long saber, and I can't see where it's going. So I didn't want to, on my first day, just whack Max von Sydow. That would be the end of the movie, for me."

Deborah Chow Explains Why The New Obi-Wan Story Is Way Better As A TV Show

  Deborah Chow Explains Why The New Obi-Wan Story Is Way Better As A TV Show It feels like we’ve been discussing rumours of Ewan McGregor’s return to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi for as long as Disney has owned Star Wars at this point—but until earlier this year, for much of that time the idea was specifically floated as a brand new spinoff Star Wars movie.

Von Sydow survived unscathed, but Driver insisted his lightsaber skills had nothing to do with it: "I missed him - but it was total luck, because I was kind of swinging blind."

Driver has since reprised his role for 2017's The Last Jedi and the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker, but despite continued fight training, he still doesn't feel like he's mastered the sword.

Speaking before recently celebrating his 36th birthday, he shared, "The great thing about acting is you never figure anything out... I'm 35, and I still don't know anything about anything."
