A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away...

I was quite proud yesterday that I was able to slip in a Star Wars reference into my post.  That got the gears turning: can we find any sort of relationships between the beloved Sci-fi series and the over-the-top century?  Take it away Google.

The Palace of Caserta, a former royal palace in Southern Italy was used in filming interior shots of the Palace of Naboo.  No computer animation needed for the House of Amidala!

Handel's opera Rinaldo's premiere in 1711 was the Star Wars at the time, stunning viewers with its special effects.

When I was reviewing Lydia Syson's book, I was so excited to find a Star Wars reference I had to quote it in my review.

So my fellow nerds, has anyone out there found any more Star Wars/18th Century relationships to share?

    Maybe one of the dresses Portman wears or her hair? I cant remember, its been a few years since i watched the movies. But i remember she has some pretty amazing outfits in Episode 2.
