We’ve got our football where no one wears anything and the guys are in little shorts and they beat the crap out of each other, and they can catch it and they can kick it, and it’s the only place it’s played in the world.
I think the things I wanted answered have been answered by people in the know that we can’t talk about, so I’m perfectly happy with how Chewie came to be where he is and what is going on in Episode III.
