Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

Lucas t'ain't as dumb as we'd been thinkin', me thinkin'

so i was hanging with ShakeScene the other day and he pulls together that in Ep_3 Kenobi might be meeting Chewie on the wookie planet, and how that explains maybe why ObiWan knew chewie at the mos eisly cantina.

i was just thinking of how at Mos Eisley, the won't serve droids in the Cantina, but will serve everyone else. it never made much sense to me, beyond it being funny, but now that we know that droid federation armies tore apart the old republic, its easy to see why there would some hostilities towards C3PO and R2D2 and other droids.

so maybe lucas isn't so much of a fuckup... at least he creates some depth in things...

The point about the droids is really good. But I still don't like the Chewbacca thing. The advantage of justifying how Kenobi knows him is, I think, outweighed by the absurdity of Chewie knowing so much more about... everything... and never telling Han.

This conversation could quickly drift into spoiler-land. I've heard something that could be relevant, but I'm not going to mention it.

Plus, I just watched Ep IV again, and there's a shot of an astronaut dude introducing Ben to Chewie.

Actually, that astronaut dude doesn’t exactly introduce them, he just points at chewy. And Chewy and Ben do kind of engage as though they’ve met before. Furthermore—and this is really reaching—Chewy does have a pretty suspicious look on his face when they are all talking. Maybe he knew all along and chooses to keep quite for some reason.

…or maybe, and this is total speculation, Obi Wan and Chewbacca don’t cross paths at all during Ep. III. Lucas’ films do tend to split among different scenarios, and I haven’t seen the two of them in the same scene, let alone on the same planet, anywhere in the trailers.
