    So this is the reason we got the Ewoks instead of the Wookies for Jedi — even Lucas couldn't stand seeing that brat Lumpy again.

    Then the Imperial legions as the "Pirates Who Don't Do Anything"... apparently their extra cruelty in the rest of the Trilogy was their attempt at redeeming some sense of menace.

    ...And you could see Harrison Ford just busting with enthusiasm. (What can I say, I don't blame any of the actors for phoning it in; I'm sure they all wished they could mail it.)

    I must say I've never felt so relieved to have been born after the 1970s.

    Thanks for another great diary, Ellid, & Happy New Year!

    •  I felt so sorry for Harrison Ford (4+ / 0-)

      It was clear he wished he were anywhere but on that set, expressing his eternal love for Wookiees.  

      As for Lumpy, the first time I saw him all I could think was "My God, he looks like an Ewok!"  Then I looked up the back story, and there it was:  originally the third movie was supposed to be set on Kashyyyk, not Endor, and involve Wookiees, not Ewoks.

      Ah, the chances of fortune....
