11. The sand on Tatooine was actually cocaine, and Carrie Fisher snorted it ALL.

Mister Peejay: ArkAngel:

Lucas couldn't reconcile at the time how a primitive race could produce someone like Chewbacca, who was so tech-savvy

Hell, even I could handwave that.

Their culture is old and enlightened, and they value the simpler things in life.  They aren't primitive because they don't understand tech, they're primitive because they don't value it.

Okay, now whip that up into a five page long treatise with a bunch of invented terms and shiat.


Also the Empire enslaved Wookies and if I remember correctly Chewie was a slave Han freed which would account for getting familiar with tech.

Anyone feel that?  I think that was my virginity coming back....

ArkAngel: fusillade762: Adolf Oliver Nipples: The number one thing that virtually nobody knows about ROTJ:

Those little bears on Endor? You know what they're called, right? Of course, Ewoks. How did you know? They are not named in the movie. Not even a single time.

The Ewoks are George Lucas' biggest sellout, even more so than Jar-Jar Binks. They were created for the sole purpose of selling toys.

They were originally supposed to be Wookiees, iirc.

Ewoks, little teddy bears.
Chewbacca, a large teddy bear.
But the Ewoks chose C3P0 as their god.

Ladies and Gentleman of the jury, that does not make sense.

meanmutton: My four year old daughter has only seen the original , 1977 release of Episode IV (although, it's titled simply "Star Wars" in the crawl because it's the 1977 release).  When she's old enough to get the "OMG" moment of Vader being Luke's father, I'll show her the original release of Empire.


Has she called you out on caring way too much about absurd things and told you to put Dora the Explorer back on yet?

//I mean, I grabbed the one DVD release of the original cuts when it was available too, but c'mon, seriously?  At the end of the day it's just a pulp-derivative action movie like half the output of Hollywood in the two decades bracketing it.  All she's going to get out of it is going to be "people in the 70s and 80s sure loved their corny dialogue" anyhow, no need to obsess.

blue_2501: That this extended music number never existed in the original.  You know, because an entire generation cannot see the originals, and they wouldn't know.

So much stupid BS with the added scenes.


The originals were put out on SvD a long while ago. They probably will be again.

How about: Chewbacca was a genetic experiment to try to make a race of super-warriors from teddy bears. Would that work?

Could you please explain exactly what part of the entirety of Star Wars that sentence doesn't apply to?

Also, Jar Jar was not selling out - unless the definition of selling out is "I will now spend an absurdist amount of time shoving a minstrel show down people's throats for no goddamn reason."  Most of use call that being a racist farktard, not selling out.
