A New Hope is the 20th episode of Season 1 on FOX comedy That '70s Show.


The gang sees Star Wars and Kelso is instantly obsessed, wanting to see it over and over again. Red is given his full-time status back at the plant. Meanwhile, Eric is annoyed with the son of Red's boss, David Milbank, trying to hit on Donna, prompting him to have a Star Wars dream (Eric as Luke Skywalker, Hyde as Han Solo, Kelso as Chewbacca, Red as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Fez and Jackie as Imperial Stormtroopers, Donna as Princess Leia, David as Darth Vader, and Kitty as a cleaning woman using R2-D2 as a vacuum cleaner.) Eric later finds out from David that the plant will be closing soon and hits him in the face.

  • Fez's country has never fought a war.
  • Laurie tells Eric that she has flunked out of college; Red and Kitty still don't know.
  • While Eric liked Star Wars and was excited about it the morning after, it's really Kelso who goes overboard with it, wanting to see it over and over and even turning down sex with Jackie in favor of the movie. This is in contrast to later seasons, where Eric is the one who goes overboard on Star Wars
  • During the episode's intro, instead of the gang driving in the Vista Cruiser, the infamous opening scrawl of the Star Wars movies is shown and Sarah is a Bentley. Also, the film chronology that is read in the movie is titled Episode XXV, meaning that is is the 25th episode when it is supposed to be 20th episode of the first season of That 70's Show.
  • In the scene where Eric confronts David, Eric and Donna are wearing white, like Luke and Leia, and David is wearing dark colors, like Darth Vader.
  • Kitty knows that the voice of Darth Vader is James Earl Jones. However, at the time, that was a fact unknown to audiences, as Jones went uncredited for this role in both A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back (although she says it as though she recognizes his voice, not from reading it in the credits).
