Let The Wookiee Win

I've brought up Star Wars before once or twice. There seems to be an insatiable appetite for new Star Wars shows, games, toys, and anything else Lucas Arts can license.

For the die hard fans of the first movie there is also an insatiable appetite to learn more about how George Lucas took some weird ideas and turned them into the classic movie that first took us far far away. I've mentioned the early treatments and scripts as well as Michael Kaminski's Secret History of Star Wars all before. But it turns out the research is ongoing.

Case in point is a very well researched article called George Lucas Stole Chewbacca, But It's Okay. I'm not sure I'll look at Han Solo's pal quite the same way ever again.
