A. C. Crispin

"The fans like it when the authors are conscientious about details in their favorite universe."
A. C. Crispin[src]

Aaron Allston

Aaron Allston: "Well, we haven't really worked out exactly how the series ends, but I'm – I'm looking for the happy ending, really."
Troy Denning: "No! I want the tragic ending."
―Authors Aaron Allston and Troy Denning, before starting an author's lightsaber duel[src]
Fisher: "How much research was necessary before you began to write?"
Allston: "A lot. I wish I'd had time to do more. I read every Star Wars technical manual I could get my hands on, plus Stackpole's novels, Zahn's novels, other novels in which Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron make appearances, comic books, and several of West End's Star Wars game supplements. I watched the movie trilogy repeatedly. I played the X-Wing computer game. I bought eight of the Action Fleet toys and used them for measurements and estimations of their performance in atmosphere. I read books on aircraft carrier life and pilot survival."
―Jim Fisher interviews Aaron Allston[src]

"Well, no one on the writing team is absolutely in love with Boba Fett this time around."
Aaron Allston, asked whether Boba Fett would play a major role in Fate of the Jedi[src]

Interviewer: "If you chose multi-player on XVT and went head to head with Mike Stackpole, what starfighter would you choose and who would win?"
Allston: "If I were engaged in such a competition, I'd hire a ringer, a player who really loves that sort of game, and give him enough information to pretend to be me. Then I'd adjourn to let him wreak havoc. Knowing Mike, though, he'd probably do the same to me. So Mike and I would be in our respective offices working, and two hard-core flight sim nuts would be blasting away at one another, each convinced that the other writer was pretty hot stuff. That's good for everybody, because two gamers would be paid to play while Mike and I would acquire these phenomenal reputations."
Aaron Allston, on a potential X-wing vs. TIE Fighter contest with Michael A. Stackpole[src]

"Obviously, the bad guys have more fashion sense in the Star Wars universe, and Lando didn't have enough screen time to, well, bring Balance to the Fashion."
Aaron Allston[src]

"There will be pages. Lots and lots of pages. Most of the pages will have letters on them, and a vast majority of these letters will be in the Roman alphabet."
Aaron Allston, regarding the future of the Legacy of the Force novel series[src]
Allston: "My memory is dim, but didn't Wedge as a teen witness the murder of both his parents, just like Batman?"
Stackpole: "Wedge's parents died when fueling station exploded."
Aaron Allston and Michael A. Stackpole, conversing on Twitter[src]

Abel G. Peña

"I think my folks sat me down to watch A New Hope on VHS when I was very young, and that was the beginning of the end."
Abel G. Peña, on how he became interested in Star Wars[src]

"Sweet Sith, I think I'm in love with my own creation."
Abel G. Peña, talking about Ailyn Vel in his blog[src]

"I love the Expanded Universe, the Star Wars world of spin-off literature, with all its quirks born of various audience and generational desires and publishing practicalities. Bring me your Crystal Stars, Holiday Specials, and Glove of Darth Vaders! The EU's imperfection makes it feel real."
Abel G. Peña, a fan of the Star Wars saga in all its myriad forms[src]

"Wookieepedia is a lavish and stunning homage to the Star Wars pop cultural phenomenon. Thanks to its professional appearance, the scope of its content, the quality of its writers and diligence of its administrators, Wookieepedia has become a valuable resource to fans both casual and obsessive, as well as to Star Wars authors. It's becoming the new nexus for everyone who wants to know as much as Yoda about that galaxy far, far away."
Abel G. Peña praising Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki[src]
"I attribute my successful infiltration of various parts of the Star Wars universe to a few things. First, and perhaps foremost, I'm simply thoroughly familiar with the gamut of Star Wars lore—new and old, different media, the good, the bad, and the Hutt pornography."
Abel G. Peña, in an interview with New Jedi Order Encyclopedia[src]

Alex McCrindle

"And may the Force go with you!"
Alex McCrindle (Jan Dodonna)[src]

Alex Newborn

"Star Wars Insider attempted to interview Korman in 2003 for the 25th anniversary of the Holiday Special; the phone call with his agent was unintentionally hilarious, as the confused man kept marveling, "Harvey was in Star Wars? Harvey!?"
Alex Newborn, discussing Harvey Korman's roles in The Star Wars Holiday Special[src]

Anthony Daniels

"It's thirty years since I met George in an office in London. I didn't want to meet him. I didn't want to play a robot in a low-budget sci-fi movie. Can you imagine how I would have felt today being a shelf stacker in a supermarket, going ‘I could have been in that movie!’ So I guess the Force was with me."
Anthony Daniels, in an interview with the BBC[src]

"I asked George if he could please read Artoo's beeps to me while I was performing. 'Sure,' said George. So I'd say my lines, and after a long pause, George would go, 'Er, beep, beep, beep,' in this very flat voice. Well, I fired George from that job."
Anthony Daniels[src]

Bea Arthur

Arthur: "It was a wonderful time, but I had no idea it was even a part of the whole Star Wars thing."
Mercury: "Well, that song was great."
Arthur: "Well, thanks. It's odd. I've gotten so many letters and requests for autographed photos from that thing. I just remember singing to bunch of people with funny heads."
Bea Arthur, interviewed by the Portland Mercury about her role in The Star Wars Holiday Special[src]

Carrie Fisher

"I have other generals, I shoot guns and behave like a soldier. It's almost a male sort of thing. Well, I am the only girl in an all-male-made movie. Sometimes I would say to them, 'How about a big cooking scene, baking some space food, or how about me sewing my costume back together? A shopping scene, maybe a mall planet? Give me a girl friend and we'll talk about how cute Han is.' There are no moments where Leia is stereotypically female."
Carrie Fisher, about Leia in Starlog (May 1983)[src]

"Forty-three years ago, George Lucas ruined my life. And I mean that in the nicest possible way."
Carrie Fisher, Wishful Drinking[src]

"Not to mention, you had the unmitigated gall to let that chick, the new girl that plays my mother, Queen Amadillo or whatever her name is – she wears a new hairstyle and outfit practically every time she walks through a door! I mean, I bet she even got to wear a bra, even though you told me I couldn't because there was no underwear in space!"
Carrie Fisher, roasting George Lucas[src]

"The last line in the script was that the Princess is way down the hall and she is staggeringly beautiful. I crossed off the 'ly' and 'beautiful' and felt this new wording more approached what I would bring to the character."
Carrie Fisher, on playing Princess Leia in Star Wars[src]
"Harrison was the rogue and Mark was the ingenue and the wise old man. […] And I was not a damsel in distress. I was a distressing damsel."
Carrie Fisher, on playing Princess Leia in Star Wars[src]
"Originally, I was known as the 'the girl'. During my first day on the set, someone described the next scene I was in as, 'The girl crossed the room and exits stage left. The camera operator will have to pan to keep her in frame.' I asked whether I was to be 'the girl' or 'the camera operator'. They got the idea. I'm now an honorary camera operator."
Carrie Fisher, on filming Star Wars[src]
"I asked George [Lucas] for some sort of drinking problem. I said, 'Leia lost her parents and planet in the first film and in the second a very close friend lost his hand and her first boyfriend was frozen. By the third movie, I must be totally exhausted. I've been chased for who knows how many years.' I figure I'm ready to go, 'Hey, guys, I can't do this anymore. I'm going to get my hair done. You handle it.' And I book myself into a convent."
Carrie Fisher on her character's role in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi[src]

Christopher Lee

"I couldn't do the running. I was eighty! I said to George Lucas, ‘I can do the swordfighting, but I can't run!’"
Christopher Lee, in an interview with Total Film[src]

"I remember when it came out, I wrote [Peter Cushing] a letter saying 'What on earth is a Grand Moff? And why is he called Tarkin?' He wrote back and said, 'I have no idea!'"
Christopher Lee[src]

Daniel Erickson

"In KOTOR, you were restricted in what you could say because you got dark side points for being snarky. Han Solo would be an evil Sith Lord under that system."
Daniel Erickson, on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic[src]

Daniel Wallace

"Wait a minute — I've written more than a million words about Star Wars, I have a weakness for naming new Supreme Chancellors at the drop of a hat, and I maintain a blog devoted to Captain Panaka … and you guys are surprised I look like a geek?"
Daniel Wallace, responding to ribbing from Wookieepedians about his appearance[src]

"For those who don't know, Galaxy of Fear was a series of young adult books by John Whitman that tied into the teen-horror genre popularized by such authors as R.L. Stine. And for something that seems like a product of its time I thought they were a lot of fun. But I'd be nervous if I were given the opportunity to write the sequel, since every single chapter of those books had to end with a cliffhanger. It was the law. A chapter would finish with 'Tash stepped off the spaceship and heard a blood-curdling scream!' Then you'd read the next chapter and it would say 'But apparently it was just a bird.'"
Daniel Wallace, on the Galaxy of Fear books[src]

"The Nintendo 64 game Shadows of the Empire had some fun highlights including a bunch of rampaging wampas as you escaped from Echo Base. To create additional enemies on the cheap, LucasArts copied the wampa model, colored it brown, and set it down on the rocky trails of Gall. This was the first variant in what would evolve into the 'swamp wampa' in Mysteries of the Sith. I love it when the Expanded Universe gets enriched through incidental cost-cutting."
Daniel Wallace[src]

Dave Filoni

"One thing that I thought was kind of 'inside' was the scene in Children of the Force where Anakin and Ahsoka go to talk to Chancellor Palpatine, and Palpatine stops her at the door and doesn't let her into his office. I thought it was a little tongue-in-cheek; the fans know that he's the Sith Lord corrupting Anakin Skywalker, but it's also for the fans who are perplexed by the question of why Ahsoka is there. Palpatine is dismissive of her, which I thought was kind of funny. I thought that they'd be glad that he dissed her so directly, so we did that very intentionally."
Dave Filoni discusses his favorite in-joke in Star Wars: The Clone Wars[src]

"I always get worried about disrupting continuity. I seem to get blamed for that a lot."
Dave Filoni[src]

Drew Karpyshyn

"Star Wars fans—we are legion!"
Drew Karpyshyn[src]

Elaine Cunningham

"It's an adventure story with a fantasy heart and a science fiction wardrobe."
Elaine Cunningham, when asked in what genre she considers Star Wars to be[src]

Ewan McGregor

"I used to know all the lines. Me and my mates used to watch it and then do the whole thing, take different parts. I liked being Princess Leia the best."
Ewan McGregor, on watching Star Wars as a child[src]

Femi Taylor

"I had no idea what it was I was auditioning for. They were quite secretive, and they said they wanted me to come in my swimwear. I thought, 'I hope this isn't a blue movie!'"
Femi Taylor discusses her thoughts on auditioning for Oola in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi[src]

Frank Klepacki

"Greetings, this is Urai Fen. A recent addition to the Zann Consortium is Frank Klepacki. He's recorded so much f****** V.O. that he's about to lose his mind."
Frank Klepacki as Urai Fen, in a recorded outtake — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

George Lucas

George Lucas quotes, now in excess of 10, have been moved to a sub-page:
Wookieepedia:Quote of the Day/Archive/George Lucas

Harrison Ford

"And to be fair, I did say to George, 'George, you can type this shit, but you can't say it!' And that's the year he gets nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay."
Harrison Ford, on the making of the first Star Wars film[src]
Journalist: "What is the difference between Han Solo and Indiana Jones?"
Ford: "I see a great difference between Han Solo and Indiana Jones. I think Indiana Jones is a much more complex character and provides the opportunity to explore a lot more of a character's personality and nature. I just thought that Han Solo was a little dumb and not self-aware."
Journalist: "He's a space cowboy!"
Ford: "But there are cowboys and there are cowboys. If he's a space cowboy, he ain't from Brokeback Mountain."
Journalist: "What about Chewie?"
Ford: "What are you, French?"
Harrison Ford and a French Journalist[src]
Conan: "They made this Star Wars Christmas special, and the tape's been passed around for years, and the rumor is that Lucas is trying to suppress it, cause none of you look happy while you're making this thing." [Ford squirms uncomfortably] "And I thought I'd just ask you about it. Do you remember making this Christmas special? I think it was 1978." [Ford shakes head] "No? You don't remember it? You have no memory of this incident?"
Ford: [shakes head] "No, none whatsoever."
Conan: "No memory of it at all?"
Ford: "No."
Conan: "So it doesn't—"
Ford: "No."
Conan: "—exist in your—"
Ford: "No, it doesn't exist!"
Conan: "It doesn't exist?"
Ford: "No."
Conan: "What if I were to tell you that I had a little piece of tape right now?" [Ford lunges at Conan, strangles him] "No!"
Conan O'Brien, interviewing Harrison Ford about The Star Wars Holiday Special[src]
"There was no future in dead-Han toys."
Harrison Ford's thoughts on why George Lucas vetoed his idea to have Han Solo killed in Return of the Jedi[src]

Ian Liston

"I play a stormtrooper, in a walker, who's trying to shoot down my own bloody plane."
Ian Liston, the actor who portrays Wes Janson, on another role he assumed in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back[src]

Ian McDiarmid

"I've been trying to find a redeeming feature to Palpatine, and the only one I've got so far is that he's clearly a patron of the arts because he goes to the opera."
Ian McDiarmid, on the evil of his role[src]

"I was once chased through a tube station. They were saying, 'You've got to stop, you're the Emperor, you've got to stop.' And I managed to run faster than them. They only wanted my autograph—it wasn't anything sinister. I thought, 'This is ridiculous—why didn't I just stop and give my autograph and move on?' But it had gone too far by then."
Ian McDiarmid[src]

"I was surprised how much butt, in fact, I do kick in this movie."
Ian McDiarmid, in an interview with Sci-Fi Weekly on Revenge of the Sith[src]

Irvin Kershner

Irvin Kershner: "You know that Darth Vader's your father."
Mark Hamill: "Wha!"
Irvin Kershner recalls when he told Mark Hamill his true role before shooting this scene
"The audience had to know that Luke had feeling in his hand. That way… when he puts his arm around Leia, it isn't creepy."
Irvin Kershner, on why Luke Skywalker was shown to feel pain in his hand in the closing scene of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back[src]

Jason Fry

"New endnotes, y'all. This one is packed: early Empire, how I learned what minimalism/maximalism meant, and even some new canonical ship lengths. I'm timing you, Wookieepedia."
Jason Fry, after posting endnotes for The Essential Guide to Warfare[src]
"I still think the Lusankya erupting from underneath the cityscape of Coruscant might be the goofiest thing in the entire EU—the only way it could be goofier would be if her bridge crew were Jaxxon, Reist and Waru. I mean, really—how would any of that have worked?"
Jason Fry[src]

Jeremy Bulloch

"As you know, Boba Fett doesn't sweat."
Jeremy Bulloch, at Star Wars Weekends, when asked what the inside of Boba Fett's helmet smelled like[src]

John Jackson Miller

"Not counting Dooku (who loses something more important) there are quite a lot of limbs sacrificed to lightsabers — you could almost build your own Jedi from all the spare parts!"
John Jackson Miller[src]

"Did you notice they let the woman with no eyes drive? ‘Sorry, officer. He was in my Force Sight Blind Spot.’"
John Jackson Miller[src]

"Jarael thanks the judges and credits the win to her speech about wanting to achieve world peace by whacking people up side the head with big electrically charged battle staffs!"
John Jackson Miller, on Jarael being crowned Miss Star Wars 2009[src]

"When I began writing Star Wars, I'd been working long enough to know that there was no such thing as a throwaway character. Every character with the tiniest mention wound up on Wookieepedia."
John Jackson Miller, on naming characters for the Knights of the Old Republic comics[src]

"Actually, if you start on the KOTOR side and keep reading Rebellion upside-down, it lists all of Palpatine's old girlfriends. And the KOTOR side upside-down? A recipe for delicious devil's-food cake..."
John Jackson Miller, on the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic/Rebellion flip-book[src]

"#1 rejected name for last KOTOR comics storyline: 'We'll Always Have Taris'"
John Jackson Miller, via Twitter[src]

"The results of Treece's raids [against the Sith] generally pleased the Chancellor. The morale boost came cheaply; all ships and munitions involved came from private contributions. It was a much different reaction than Jedi Knight Revan had received, centuries earlier, in his own extracurricular efforts against the Mandalorians. But the circumstances, Kerra recalled, were different. The Sith were evil; the Mandalorians just had an attitude problem."
Jedi Knight Kerra Holt compares the actions of Vannar Treece and Revan[src]

John Ostrander

"Actually, whenever I have a character for which I don't yet have a name, I refer to them as 'Bob'. I think Cade was once 'Bob'. Bob Skywalker. I still like it."
John Ostrander[src]

Leland Chee

"In the end, my ongoing vision is that as long as there's the Holocron, Star Wars will not reboot."
Leland Chee, "What is the Holocron?" on the The Official Star Wars Blog[src]

Mark Hamill

"Of all the things to worry about... the Wookiee has no pants."
Mark Hamill[src]

"When I read the third one, I mostly was upset with the cavalier attitude towards Boba Fett. He had been built up as this monumental bounty hunter, and he... just flies away. I thought that was going to be a major revelation, off comes the helmet, oh my God, it's my mother! She's a double agent working for the good guys, who knows."
Mark Hamill, in an interview with CNN[src]

Irvin Kershner: "You know that Darth Vader's your father."
Mark Hamill: "Wha!"
Irvin Kershner recalls when he told Mark Hamill his true role before shooting this scene

"I heard I got the part, and they said they were gonna send the script over, and I'll never forget to this day. I sat down and started reading this thing, and I went 'Wait a minute, I think... was Harrison the Luke guy or was I the Luke guy? And I think... I think I was the Luke guy. I was the Luke guy! This is about me!'"
Mark Hamill, on MTV/Entertainment Tonight[src]

Jane Pauley: "Is it a secret, uh, which of – of the two of you, um, wins the love of Princess Leia?"
Mark Hamill: "I think it's best to keep as many surprises as possible. It's like your sister telling you what you're getting for Christmas."
Jane Pauley, interviewing Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford on Today in 1980[src]
Mark Hamill: "You traitors! George, how could you do that?"
George Lucas: "It's a business, kid."
Mark Hamill confronts George Lucas about Lucasfilm Ltd.'s involvement with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan[src]

Matthew Stover

"Every time I start one of these projects, they send me, uh, their current version of the classified Jedi Holocron Database, which is basically a searchable database of everything that has ever happened in any Star Wars related work. So I've got that and I've got the books and I've got Wookieepedia, because, you know, there's – there's a lot of information in there, and it's a lot easier to find in some ways."
Matthew Stover, in an interview with swactionnews.com[src]

Michael A. Stackpole

"Michael A. Stackpole is an award-winning game and computer game designer who was born in 1957 and hates writing these 'About the Author' pieces because they force him to refer to himself in the third person. Being neither a Gand nor a Presidential candidate, he finds this awkward. Perhaps if he had not grown up in a normal family, enjoying an utterly normal life, this third person thing wouldn't bother him, but then he also thinks it's better to be known for what he's written and done than for any vaguely interesting bits of nonsense about his past."
Michael A. Stackpole goes on a bit of a rant on the "About the Author" page in X-Wing: The Bacta War[src]
Allston: "My memory is dim, but didn't Wedge as a teen witness the murder of both his parents, just like Batman?"
Stackpole: "Wedge's parents died when fueling station exploded."
Aaron Allston and Michael A. Stackpole, conversing on Twitter[src]

Nilo Rodis-Jamero

"There was an afternoon where we were all gathered, months after Ralph [McQuarrie] actually stopped coming, and George [Lucas] made a point of thanking Ralph in front of everyone. Ralph stood up and said, 'I was one of the first people that George hired,' because Ralph is an unbelievably humble man. George got up and said, 'No, you were the first one.'"
Nilo Rodis-Jamero, on Ralph McQuarrie's retirement from the production of Return of the Jedi[src]

Pablo Hidalgo

"It has all the hallmarks of a sequel—bigger, more expensive, more explosive, and not quite finished."
Pablo Hidalgo, comparing the Second Death Star to the first[src]

"They were nihilists. I mean, say what you will about the tenets of the Galactic Empire, at least it's an ethos."
Pablo Hidalgo, about the Shawken Device, paraphrasing The Big Lebowski[src]

"Banks in our universe spend a lot trying to convince us that they care. In Star Wars, they can bombard your planet from orbit."
Pablo Hidalgo, commenting on Banking Clan Frigates[src]
"There is no chin under Kyle Katarn's beard. There is only another fist."
Pablo Hidalgo, commenting on Kyle Katarn[src]
"The number of people who met Yoda while he was hiding in the swamps before Luke found him is distressingly high. Way to keep hidden there, Master."
Pablo Hidalgo, when asked about what surprised him during his research for The Essential Reader's Companion[src]
"Etiquette dictates that to avoid upset feelings or arguments, there are three things you never discuss at the dinner table: religion, politics, and the lengths of Super Star Destroyers."
Pablo Hidalgo[src]

Paul Dini

"Broadcast Standards and Practices has pretty strange bugaboos. […] They want to do everything conceivable they can to take what they perceive as the harmful edge off this kind of entertainment. So, if it means making a laser sound basically like a laser but like a 'less deadlier' laser, that's their attitude."
Star Wars: Droids associate producer and story editor Paul Dini laments the perils of Saturday-morning cartoons[src]

Peter Mayhew

"I put that mask on, and Chewie transformed me. I transformed. The attitude was different. The walk was different. Chewie turned on."
Peter Mayhew[src]
"After Empire, I got a big shoebox of letters. Most of them were from six or seven-year-olds. There was one I thought was really funny, from the Mid-West. She was complaining that Wookiees don't wear clothes. This was serious—'Don't you think it's disgusting that Wookiees don't wear clothes? What's going to happen about that?!'"
Peter Mayhew on fan mail after the release of The Empire Strikes Back[src]
"It was known as 'Bigfoot Country.' So I got strict instructions not to wander off in costume. Can you imagine it? I'm in full costume, going through the undergrowth, and some guy jumps up with a shotgun and—BANG!—'I got Bigfoot!'"
Peter Mayhew discusses the dangers of being in a Wookiee costume while filming the Endor scenes of Return of the Jedi in the forests of northern California[src]

Richard Marquand

"Artoo is the only one who really gets on my nerves as an actor. I don't mean Kenny [Baker], I mean Artoo-Detoo. He is a pig. He is terrible. He's impossible. He decides to take the day off, so he takes the day off. He won't put his third leg down, so he doesn't put his third leg down. Or suddenly, in the middle of a thing, he'll just, zip, walk away. He shouldn't be allowed on any set."
―Director Richard Marquand talks of troubles with the remote-controlled R2-D2 props used while filming Return of the Jedi[src]

Samuel L. Jackson

"I went to the first screening of Star Wars on 44th Street and Times Square in New York City and I was totally blown away. I was on drugs too. I was pretty herbed out and the screen started going…" [he makes a wavy gesture with his hands] "'Oh, yes! This was going to be great!' I've seen it eight or nine times since. In fact, I'm trying to find George Lucas now so I can be in his prequel."
Samuel L. Jackson, reflecting on the first time he saw Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope[src]

Shelly Shapiro

"The early system of tracking continuity was for a question to be called out (by phone or by yelling down the room or corridor) in the hope that someone would remember and have an answer—very high tech, as you can see."
Shelly Shapiro, about the days before the Holocron continuity database[src]

StarWars.com Cargo Bay entry for Christmas in the Stars[src]

Tim Rose

Interviewer: "When puppeteering Salacious Crumb, you had to interact with Carrie Fisher. How did she react to Salacious and you off-camera?"
Tim Rose: "Well, let me start by saying that I was a young man at the time, about 25 years old. Carrie wasn't much older and with that costume she wore in Jabba's palace it wasn't hard to get the blood flowing."
Star Wars Interviews speaks to Tim Rose[src]

Timothy Zahn

"I have to rely on the editors and folks at Lucasfilm, the Holocron, Wookieepedia, and things like that, to keep track of what people are doing. You also have to remember books are being written even as you're writing a book, so I really do have to rely on other people to keep me up to date!"
Author Timothy Zahn, on how he keeps up to date with the Star Wars universe[src]
"If by some miracle Disney *does* want my input on the project, I *will* be on the next flight to California. Heck, I'll charter a plane if I have to."
Timothy Zahn, responding to fans' questions on whether the upcoming sequel trilogy will draw elements from the Thrawn Trilogy[src]

Toby Philpott

"All we could see was a grainy 'security camera' shot of Jabba on tiny monitors hanging on our chests, which made stuff hard. Dave [Barclay] told me he had to put Jabba's right hand on Leia's shoulder, but heard her say, quite calmly, 'That's not my shoulder.'"
Toby Philpott describes the difficulties of controlling the Jabba the Hutt puppet in Return of the Jedi[src]

Troy Denning

Aaron Allston: "Well, we haven't really worked out exactly how the series ends, but I'm – I'm looking for the happy ending, really."
Troy Denning: "No! I want the tragic ending."
―Authors Aaron Allston and Troy Denning, before starting an author's lightsaber duel[src]

Warwick Davis

"I also think that when it comes to Star Wars Battlefront, I'm the only person who doesn't shoot the Ewoks when playing it! Instead I'll run past an Ewok, wave to him and say good morning!"
Warwick Davis[src]

Anonymous

"They're lightsabers, not mood rings."

"Look at me with a straight face and say midichlorians. You can't, can you? As if it wasn't bad enough that he decided to give Darth Vader, one of the most feared men in the galaxy, a nickname like 'Annie.'

Hayden: "Nyaaah! The Jedi are stupider! They didn't know I was married to Natalie despite the fact that we live together, which Ian figured out in seconds. They didn't know Ian was a Sith. They asked me to get close to him, knowing full well I am confused and that he's manipulative. God, the assassin from Attack of the Clones allegedly couldn't be sent by Christopher Lee because 'It's not in his character'? Face it, it's a miracle the Jedi survived this long!"
Ewan: "Anti-Jedite!"
Narrator: "They duel. Then they duel some more! Then there's even more dueling! Afterwards, they do some more dueling. Then there's another duel, a little dueling, and finally, a duel."
Ewan: "It's over, Hayden! I've got the high ground, just like Darth Maul did in Episode I right before I…killed him successfully… Ignoring that, if you jump over to me, I will cut your shit off!"
Hayden: "You underestimate my power to decide not to jump to the low ground in front of you where I will be able to safely continue dueling, but to instead try to jump all the way over you and get my shit cut off!"

Plus… when would he find time to leave his home world of Kashyyyk to join the Mad Hatter at the White House?

"It was Palpatine's manipulations that put Jar-Jar in the Senate. Once in the Senate, it was Jar-Jar who led to the vote granting Palpatine the emergency powers he needed to install an army. It was that army that made the Clone Wars possible. It was the Clone Wars that made the Empire possible. No Jar-Jar, no Clone Wars, no Empire. I rest my case right here. Any organization founded on Jar-Jar Binks is doomed to failure."
―Alex Knapp's reaction to Death Star PR's rebuttal to his "Five Leadership Mistakes Of The Galactic Empire"[src]
"Even beyond this one mistake, by adopting a management style of 'failure leads to Force choking,' Vader developed an organizational culture that was destined to be weak. People would be afraid to offer feedback or suggestions, choosing instead to follow orders to the letter. This ensures that decisions are made at a very high level, and anyone under those levels will lack initiative or the ability to act on their local knowledge. What's more, by punishing failure so harshly, the Empire provides an incentive for people within the organization to actually lead their superiors to failure. After all, the quickest way to promotion in the Empire is for your boss to make a mistake, so it's in your own best interests to ensure that he does."
―Alex Knapp, "Five Leadership Mistakes Of The Galactic Empire," published in Forbes magazine website[src]
"We here at Forbes aren't terribly scared of a Galactic Empire whose ground forces can't face a sustained assault by teddy bears armed with sticks and whose 'ultimate weapon' can be destroyed by farmers or random mining executives with little to no space combat experience."

Conan: "Salacious Crumb! He laughed at everything Jabba the Hutt said even when Jabba's material was sub-par. He'd make a great sidekick."
Conan O'Brien, in interview[src]
Conan: "They made this Star Wars Christmas special, and the tape's been passed around for years, and the rumor is that Lucas is trying to suppress it, cause none of you look happy while you're making this thing." [Ford squirms uncomfortably] "And I thought I'd just ask you about it. Do you remember making this Christmas special? I think it was 1978." [Ford shakes head] "No? You don't remember it? You have no memory of this incident?"
Ford: [shakes head] "No, none whatsoever."
Conan: "No memory of it at all?"
Ford: "No."

Cracked

"Quickly, what's your favorite scene from the original Star Wars trilogy? The first moment you see Darth Vader? When Luke loses his hand and finds out the truth about his father? The battle with Imperial Walkers on Hoth? Whatever it was, chances are it was conceived long before A New Hope was ever made, and not by George Lucas. Ralph McQuarrie was the production illustrator—basically, the guy whose job it is to get studios excited about the movie. He was supposed to sketch out a few ideas based on an incomplete script, just to give a hint of what direction the film might go. […] Looking at what he accomplished, it would be insulting to call his pictures 'concept art'; they were Star Wars."
―On Ralph McQuarrie, from Cracked's "7 Artists Who Secretly Made Your Favorite Movies" by David Christopher Bell[src]
"Without McQuarrie, there wouldn't be a Darth Vader helmet, or a Boba Fett suit, or Storm Trooper armor, which means you would have spent an entire decade of your childhood dressing up each Halloween as a ghost or a skeleton or some bullshit. Unless you did do that, in which case, you should watch Star Wars, it's really good."

Hal Sparks

"I always wondered which one of the stormtroopers did Darth Vader's laundry. Now that I think about it, it was probably one of the Royal Guards since they're his own personal attachés. Plus they probably know how to properly separate colors from whites since they wear those bright red robes. Could you imagine if they got one of their robes mixed in with Vader's robes? 'Why is everything purple?!' Now that would be worthy of a Force choke!"

Richard Cheese

"I mostly watched films like The Maltese Falcon, Goldfinger, and anything with Frank, Sammy or Dino in it. Then, a few years ago, I played at a hotel cocktail lounge that had one of the Star Wars movies playing on a big-screen TV, as sort of background eye candy. It looked like a crazy heist flick, just like Ocean's 11. This gang of good guys was trying to knock off the biggest casino in the galaxy, the Death Star. So I had the rest of the movies sent to my room, and I watched them between sets. I was struck by the 'futuristic' vibe in the movies. I guess the 'Wars' take place in space or something. Not normally my scene, but I dug the chick with the hair and the electric swords – those were swingin'. Oh, and the floating car was a gas."

Adamwankenobi

"Before I found Wookieepedia, watching a Star Wars film, reading Star Wars materials, or playing a Star Wars video game was pretty straightforward. Now, I can't even look at any of it for a second without checking Wookieepedia to see if 'that character seen to the right of that scene for one second', or 'that character mentioned on page 293' has its own article. It's madness, I tell you! But that madness makes me proud... for I am a Wookieepedian!"

Though Threepio personally saw no reason why human remains should not simply be jettisoned, burned, or for that matter stewed and eaten by other humans in an emergency (provided they were certified free of harmful bacteria first and, if possible, aesthetically prepared), he was acutely aware that neither Her Excellency, the young man's family, nor the deceased himself would have considered this send-off at all respectful."

"Fett floated in a long dreamtime moment, tied to the gambler's last moments of real awareness down in the slime on the floor of the pit, blind, deaf, limbs dissolved, rib cage cracked apart with the tentacles massaging his organs, dreaming of a woman who loved him—Boba Fett had been born to anger, and rage was his life. He struggled up out of the vision, fought it wildly, carried himself up out of the nightmare on the back of a wave of fury and abruptly was back, there in his body with the pain of the burning acid all around him, suffused with a clear, lucid, thinking hatred, an emotion so dark and deep and pure the Dark Lord himself might never have felt its equal.
"He could hear his own heartbeat thudding in his ears and he said, 'I'm going to kill you very slowly,' and he had never meant anything more in his life.

"Varner Hilts's father spent years earning the confidence of the leader of the local faction in Beray. He took great care in selecting the shikkar blade intended for his liege's back. But the elder Hilts used somewhat less care in fastening the dagger's sheath, and the glass blade fell from his belt and buried itself in his ankle. He was dead in a gangrenous month, a mercifully short time to have to endure the nickname 'Slippery Hilts.'"

However, she did achieve her surprise, if the horror of the cleaning servants counted."

K.W. Jeter

"Whatever minute subcutaneous organ produced fear sweat, it was missing in him. Not because he had been born without it – no sentient creature was – but because he had forced it into nonexistence, excised it from his mind with the razor-sharp scalpel of his will. The ancient Mandalorian warriors, whose lethal battle-gear he wore, had been just as coldly ruthless, according to the legends that were still told and retold in whispers throughout the galaxy. Long ago, when he had first gazed upon one of their empty helmets, a relic of an extinguished terror, he had seen in its narrow, unreadable gaze an image of his own future, of the death-bringing entity he would become."

Karen Traviss: Bloodlines[src]
"In five millennia, the Mandalorians fought with and against a thousand armies on a thousand worlds. They learned to speak as many languages and absorbed weapons technology and tactics from every war. And yet, despite the overwhelming influence of alien cultures, and the absence of a true home world and even species, their own language not only survived but changed little; their way of life and their philosophy remained untouched; and their ideals and sense of family, of identity of nation, were only strengthened. Armor is not what makes a Mandalorian. Armor is simply a manifestation of an impenetrable, unassailable heart."

Matthew Stover, Revenge of the Sith novelization[src]
"This story happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It is already over. Nothing can be done to change it. It is a story of love and loss, brotherhood and betrayal, courage and sacrifice and the death of dreams. It is a story of the blurred line between our best and our worst. It is the story of the end of an age. A strange thing about stories- Though all this happened so long ago and so far away that words cannot describe the time or the distance, it is also happening right now. Right here. It is happening as you read these words. This is how twenty-five millennia come to a close. Corruption and treachery have crushed a thousand years of peace. This is not just the end of a republic; night is falling on civilization itself. This is the twilight of the Jedi. The end starts now."
Matthew Stover: beginning of the Revenge of the Sith novel[src]
"Obi-Wan Kenobi opened his eyes to find himself staring at what he strongly suspected was Anakin's butt.
It
looked like Anakin's butt—well, his pants, anyway—though it was thoroughly impossible for Obi-Wan to be certain, since he had never before had occasion to examine Anakin's butt upside down, which it currently appeared to be, nor from this rather uncomfortably close range.
And how he might have arrived at this angle and this range was entirely baffling.
He said, 'Um, have I missed something?'
'Hang on,' he heard Anakin say. 'We're in a bit of a situation here.'
So it
was Anakin's butt after all. He supposed he might take a modicum of comfort from that."

"One popular story in the Jedi Temple related how Master Windu was surrounded by a cadre of Gank killers—some of the galaxy's most formidable warriors—all of whom had blasters drawn and pointed at him. Master Windu never drew his lightsaber. He only laid his hand on it, and one by one, looked into the eyes of his opponents. Finally, he said three words: 'It's your decision.' One after another, the Gank killers laid down their weapons and quietly surrendered."

"At this moment Yoda turned, and Dooku gasped. Whether it was the play of the holomonitors, beaming their views of bleak space and distant battles, or some other trick of the light, Yoda's face was deeply hidden in the shadows, mottled black and blue, so that for one terrible instant he looked exactly like Darth Sidious. Or rather, it was Yoda as he might have been, or could yet become: a Yoda gone rotten, a Yoda whose awesome powers had been utterly unleashed by his connection to the dark side. In a flash Dooku saw how foolish he had been, trying to urge the old Master to the dark side. If Yoda ever turned that way, Sidious himself would be annihilated. The universe had yet to comprehend the kind of evil that a Jedi Knight of nearly nine hundred years could wield."
