    I think the line the actor had was “No, Obi-wan killed your father.” But I could be wrong, saw it in one of the documentaries on the extra DVD with the original trilogy special addition (need to get original theatrical releases). Anyways could have been Empire of Dreams.

    The one about R2D2 is utter rubbish. The difference between a midget and a dwarf is that a midget’s body is all the usual proportion, whereas a dwarf has a proportional sized head and torso but short limbs (apart from primordial dwarves). The stuff about heat resistance is nonsense, and Kenny Baker himself is an achondroplasiastic dwarf.

    I think I might have meant achondroplasic, but the point stands.

    I think the heat resistance part was a joke… I thought it was funny.

    Just in case you get to the bottom and don’t realize it, all of these are false. It’s a joke.

    Not ALL OF IT is bullshit, but quite a part, it is. Yoda’s appearance is based on that of his own designer, Stuart Freeborn, along with some details taken from Einstein’s portraits.

    For the filming of Empire Strikes Back, Vader’s line was “Kenobi killed your father”; there was never any time travel bullshit involved.

    The Ewoks origin has nothing to do with merchandising. Specially since the big smart move Lucas made from the beggining of the whole project was precisely leaving all box office revenues to Fox and keeping control of all of merchandising.

    The Sith are called The Legions of Lettow. In a very ironic twist, the Jedi were called the Dai Noga, almost like the trash lurking, one-eyed creatures featured in the trashc ompactor scene.

    Hey, if you’re gonna make up something and try fun stuff from lies, at least do it about something less people know about.

    The whole article seems like written by a trekkie.

    And the “A long time ago…” part is bollocks too: the phrase didn’t even appeared in the original release.
