Behind the scenes[]

The Rebel sentry first appeared in the first Star Wars film, Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, released on May 25, 1977.[2] The sentry was played by Industrial Light & Magic's Lorne Peterson, who said that he conducted the dangerous job of standing in the watchtower because he was the only one in the special effects crew who had no children. The device that Peterson was holding during the scene was a pair of light meters taped together.[4]

The Rebel sentry made a re-appearance in the first Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,[1] released on December 16, 2016.[5] The part was played by the film's co-producer, John Swartz.[6]
