Behind the scenesEdit

The celestial equator featured in the opening crawl in the first three drafts of the original film. It was deleted in the fourth draft.

In the real world, the galactic equator is the middle of the galactic plane, splitting the galaxy in half like two plates. It is used in the galactic coordinate system as 0 degrees latitude.
