the return of the walking carpet

hello there

one of the more interesting flaws in the original Star Wars films - the ones where fanboys don't notice as they are not prequels and so don't moan about - was that a reference was made to Chewbacca as a "walking carpet". i think that Princess Leia one said it, asking for him to be moved out of her way.

there were no carpets on display at any point in any Star Wars film. carpets did not exist, then, in a galaxy far, far away, a long time ago.  so how come she made a reference to one and everyone agreed with it?


anyhow, one of the first official images off of that new Star Wars film that Disney is busy making. it is Chewbacca, presumably played by Peter Mayhew, stood with someone or other.

they posted this to one of them social network site things, can't remember which, sorry - was too busy just pinching the picture to post here.

the chap that Chewy the carpet is with seems to be all very excited about everything, doesn't he? well, who would not be.

i think this image might be a go or a dig at that Robert Downey jnr fella, who is posting random and unrevealing images off of that Avengers film he is making a second one of. just showing off something that the fans would actually like to see, look you see, where as Robert isn't. well, not yet, anyway. one would suspect that Robert might eventually film all of the film he is in as they make it and upload it "for a laugh"; a move that would no doubt impress studio lawyers.

right, that's that.



be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
