George Was Filming the Whole Time refers to a series of fake quotes in which actors from the Star Wars prequels reveal that director George Lucas filmed certain scenes by accident by keeping the cameras rolling outside of the takes.


On January 8th, 2019, Redditor[1] Robloxloverboi posted a captioned image of actor Hayden Christensen to /r/PrequelMemes subreddit. In the fake quote, the actor revealed that the infamous scene from Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith in which Anakin Skywalker kills the Younglings was captured by accident when George Lucas was filming outside of the takes.

Thank God for Hayden Christensen It actually wasn't George's idea to have Anakin kill the Younglings. ljust showed up on set one day and started to whack those little fuckers. Turns out, George was filming the whole time.


Starting on January 8th, 2019, /r/PrequelMemes users posted several other posts copying this format titled "Bless you, [name of the actor]". Redditor[2] Totallyn0tAcake posted a captioned image of actor Ewan McGregor saying that the scene of the duel between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi was filmed by accident. In another post by Redditor[3] jamesyounggg, actor Ian McDiarmid stated that he lunged at Samuel L Jackson in a 720 degree spin after the latter "called him a bitch on set".

One day on the set of Utapau Hayden and I had a bet to see who could jump down from the highest platform. Turns out I'd jumped right into the middle of a set rehearsal and said the first thing that came to my head. George had the cameras rolling and everything! It was brilliant. Samuel L Jackson called me a bitch on set so I 1ched at him, I got some serious air and hit a 720 spin, whilst I was at it. Turned out the cameras were rolling the whole time, the rest is history - Ian McDiarmid aun

In the following days, more posts implying that famous scenes from the Star Wars prequels were filmed when George Lucas accidentally caught them on camera were posted in the /r/PrequelMemes subreddit.

Various Examples

It wasn't actually my idea to make revenge of the sith, I was just malking sure.myramera wasorking. Turns ouf the whole crew was costumed, saying some random shit and playing with lightsabers sure was Samuel Jackson is truly underrated George didn't actually come up with the line "take a seat". I just walked on set one day, took a seat and then Hayden came in and I told him to take a seat, so I could chitchat with him, you knows Turns out, George was filming the whole thing 95 0 0 George now would be a good time to record Thats my secret cap, m always recordline
"It's been nearly 14 years sinc Revenge of The Sith released and George still hasn't stopped filming me. I tried to file a restraining order but it wouldn't stop him, please help me Turns out, Jar Jar Binks was never planned to be in the script. Some drunk guy showed up in a rubber mask and followed me around the set after I saved him from getting hit by a car. George saw the whole thing and decided to rewrite the whole film to make this character an essential part of the trilogy. Brilliant! IT WASN'T Genera SCRIPTED Hello there! 90 prequelmemes WE WERE JUST TURNS OUT MESSING GEORGE WAS AROUND DING ON SET r/prequelmem for the last 3 days
