A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, some of the greatest and most unique characters in the history of motion pictures were created by George Lucas for Star Wars. Their names are part of Americana, engrained in zeitgeist forever. Luke, Vader, Han, Leia, Yoda, Boba Fett”¦ the list goes on and on. We met aliens from across the universe, droids of all shapes and sizes, and a giant lovable walking furball named Chewbacca.
