I think "Vode An" was written first by Jesse Harlin, and Karen Traviss used that as a starting point. Here's a link to her Mando'a page:

All right. In that case, what was Harlin's Vode An based on? Very Happy

Thanks for the link. I've been meaning to learn some proper Mando'a, now, for quite some time, but have never gotten round to it.

I have a question; was the Jabba scene in Docking Bay 94 in the original thetrical cinema release of ANH? I don't think I've ever seen the originals ( Embarassed ) and I've seen the behind the scenes photo with the big guy talking to Harrison Ford (the big guy as in the large man, not George Lucas, "the Big Guy") but I don't know whether they were in there because Jabba was CGI in the one I've seen but in RotJ he was a puppet. Wookieepedia hasn't really helped...

Ok, thanks, that what I suspected. So, it was filmed, but they didn't use it in the original, and put in in the '97 release. Got it. It's kind of silly though, why would Jabba send Greedo in to get the money if he was already outside? I suppose he didn't want to get shot.

George Lucas always wanted that scene with Han and Jabba in the original, but it didn't look good enough when he filmed it with a puppet. He finally added it when he could use CGI to make it look believable.

You know, not every change Lucas makes is bad. I like some of the enhancements over the original release.

Like putting Ian McDirmaid in as the Emperor and dubbing Boba with the guy that did Jango. Those made sense. I'm not altogether against changing the the film a BIT but, ultimately, stuff like improving the visuals is unnescessary, and sometimes even a bad idea, because for some people the colouring and the slightly grainy footage is part of the reason they watch Star Wars; the nostalgia. I personally love the 70's looking footage. It would be nice to have the originals though. Da Vinci didn't make the background of the Mona Lisa a red sky and give her a Bible to hold a year after it was put into the gallery.

ANYWAY, that's another thread for another time. Wink

I think the Mona Lisa analogy is a bad one but to continue it artists used to paint over existing paintings all the time.

Yes but, correct me if I'm wrong, artists painted over their paintings when the paint started to peel and fade (which could be argued was what was happening to SW) but they did it to hold onto the original feeling of the painting, whereas GL was try to change it, make it newer, stir it up, which could be argued as a good thing, but not for people who watch SW for nostalgia.

P.S I think we should stop soon before we get told off Razz

Irish actor Declan Mulholland stood in for Jabba in Docking Bay 94 scene. It didnt look right to George. In the original marvel comic adaptaion Jabba is depicted having tusks and is bipedal. By the time of ROTJ Jabba had evolved into a slug like creature.
