I didn't see a thread for this, so I made one.

I re-watched Episode IV: A New Hope yesterday.

Still holds up!

I watched my blu-ray, and loved every minute of it. Still one of my favourite movies ever made.

I'm hoping to slowly re-watch all the movies over the summer and fall, and then rewatch at minimum the OT before seeing Episode VII.

Alright Taral, since you've opened this thread, I shall do my part to keep it going. BUT, I'm going to ask a question: what's your favorite background character?

When I think of A New Hope...heck, when one things of Star Wars...there's that feeling of the galaxy. It's populated by all theses rough, colorful creatures and people. Back in the beginning, we didn't know anything about them. They were all pure imagination and fertile ground for it.

Me, I'm going to go with that four armed alien in the cantina with the gas mask. I don't think we ever got a backstory for him (but I could be wrong). I think he was a Morseerian. He looked neat, and it was weird aliens like him that spurred imaginations.

I know that my cousin and I plan on spending one weekend a few weeks before TFA comes out to watch the entire saga (minus TCW movie).

I don't know who my favorite background character would be. I don't think I've gathered enough knowledge about the films, but from what I do know, I think my favorite "background character" (not sure if he counts, as he has a line) was the guy who said "He doesn't like you."

I would go with Nabrun Leids the Morseerian, but seeing as Skuls already mentioned him, I'll mention my second favourite: Momaw Nadon the Ithorian. Great species.

Nabrun Leids



Momaw Nadon

You're kidding me, Reep. Did you really think of that one too? That's awesome.

And Star Wars movies need more Hammerheads. Would be neat to see an Ithorian in a somewhat prominent side role in a film. They're making headway in Rebels.

@Darth Bane: that guy was Dr. Evazan. Kind of a neat short story about him in the Tales of the Mos Eisley Cantina book.

Agreed. I like that glass-shattering growl thing they can do. I'd like to see that in something canon.
