Star Wars & Phantom Menace/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I consider myself an expert because not only have I watched the movies repeatedly, but I consider myself a "purist" in the sense that I've read the books, but I only accept certain books as belonging to the true story. For example, the books written after "Vision of the Future" by Zahn I do not count as authentic storyline. My areas of specific expertise are: Jedi history, Han Solo, and bounty hunters.

What do you like about this subject?

Star Wars has something for everyone. Whether you're for one side or another, you like power or prestige, balance, religion, mystery, its all there. Its story is something that anyone can relate to.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Did you know that "Jedi" is a recognized religion in Australia and Great Britain?

Hi James!  It's  my understanding that episodes 7-9 will completely break from all prior lore and stories and become a completely new story. This is such a disappointment to me, especially after how careful

Dear Holly,  I have not heard about this. Most of the theories on where George Lucas found or created the names of his characters from Hebrew or other languages. A lot of the names are rumored to have
