As the owner of a Chewbacca keyring, this news has hit me hard. Well, I'm sad a part of my childhood has gone, anyway, he was a lovely bloke by all accounts. Even Harrison Ford composed a moving farewell to him. As the great man himself would say, "RAAAWWWRRGH!"

Surely you've all seen this? Be interesting to know, if you haven't, what you think of it. I've viewed it over 50 times. Was included as part of my 2004 original trilogy box set. No better doco out - shows how groundbre3aking Lucas was in the 70s - yes, a genius.

Watching this, sound down
while listening to this, sound up full.
It's like it was meant to be. The silence of space makes the scenes even more beautiful.

What do you think are the greatest mysteries of science in the Star Wars galaxy? I think they probably know what dark matter and dark energy are since Starkiller Base is powered by it. They probably know what the full size of the universe is, how it started, how it will end and why their is more matter than anti-matter.

They obviously know the origin of consciousness and how to create it since they have “sentient” droids

That being said, what is left to wonder about?

Made on a HUGE budget.
Looks like Uwe Boll's work.

Why "adults" are so invested in puerile stories for children?
