Where does that come from?

Out of his ass
Even though it was mentioned in the 80's along with Yoda's approximate age of 800 years, I first got it in writing when I bought the Complete Guide To The Star Wars Universe back in '95. Aside from that information, this being the internet age it floors me that people wouldn't just go to Wookiepedia to have a question like that answered. Let's get a game of Star Wars Trivial Pursuit going why don't we.

Yeah, why the **** should we ask questions or communicate at all when we can just ****ing Google everything.

Shut this **** down, we've got Wookieepedia. Never mind that none of that **** is canon or has any bearing.

And Wookiee life span wasn't in the movies, Yoda's age was. There's a pretty big difference.

He's not blaming anything on Hayden Christensen or George Lucas so he's not there yet.

You're cursing. How cute. I'm curious. Where was Yoda's age ever in the movies? ESB? That was only a reference to how long he's trained Jedi.

The movie or it didn't happen response only goes so far. Lucasfilm spent years releasing official information to augment the OT. You may not choose to believe it's cannon, but it doesn't change that is.

Obviously-- we always knew Vader was a Dark Lord of the Sith, but we never heard what the were, or even the word "Sith" until TPM.

It's not a hard and fast to live by-- but at the same time, the source of so much of that information is lost to time. As a kid my knowledge came from Starlog Magazine interviews, novelizations, and the radio drama.

A lot of times that general information-- like say, the fact that Owen was actually Obi-Wan's brother, gets over-rided by things in the films.

Plus, as always, I abhor the fanboy that would talk down to a casual fan for the sheer gall of not having read everything Star wars published ever to make them feel stupid.

I hope I don't talk down to people. But I will answer questions based on book stuff if people haven't read them. I like to educate. :)

Talking down or giving someone back the **** given? I gave an answer to someone. Some on else questioned that answer. I responded to the call out. The original person took offense to that. And all because I wasn't around to answer Fozzie in a timely manner when he asked?

For the record my knowledge came from the same place yours did Tank. Before I started reading the official stuff. The stuff that can be referenced.

Thank God.  Then there is still hope for him yet.

The problem is some people are failing to consult the material that has been taken as gospel for 35 years which  clearly states Chewbacca is over 200 years old!  :eek:

I gotta hear him do the voice, the voice is what will make or break him being Lando. He definitely resembles BDW far more than Ahrenreich resembles Ford though.
