I'm sure everyone's familiar with the look of an Emperial guard. They're the guys that go around with the Emperor in Return of the Jedi. They're also in Episode II guarding Palpatine (hey what's that all about? duh duh duh). Well... here's what they look like. They're the red guys:
<center><a href=http://adamrulz.com/jj/images/guard_and_vader.jpg><img src=http://adamrulz.com/jj/images/guard_and_vader.gif width=320 height=136 border=0></a> <a href=http://adamrulz.com/jj/images/guards_and_vader.jpg><img src=http://adamrulz.com/jj/images/guards_and_vader.gif width=320 height=136 border=0></a></center>

So I was a kid once (once?) and I had these figures for the guards. I always wondered what their heads looked like. Somehow I never thought twice about what a storm trooper looked like but these guys had me wondering what they looked like as if they were the second coming of Dr. Claw (or would that be the first?) ... anyway I actually went as far as ripping the head off one of the toys and ripping the head out of the helmet with a butter knife. No there was no face shown under there. The face was sort of part of the helmet. What a dissapointment.

So here I am nearly 20 years later and I finally get around to seeing the Star Wars Holiday Special. The story centers around Chewbacca trying to get home to his family for Life Day. Well at the end we see all the Wookies dressed up for Life day in ... Emperor's guard robes! I mean seriously... just chell this out:

How can you even dispute that?

I worked it out, its because of the symbolism of color. I saw george lucas talking about it last year sometime. I cant remember exactly what he said, something about how darth vader wears black and his death star is all black and white, ita all symbolic. He also said some other interesting stuff, you should try to track that stuff down.

They aren't Wookiees. WHERE DID YOU SEE THE HOLIDAY SPECIAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wookiees only where clothes on special occasions. The red represents the red blood of life.

Downloaded it last year. And where did you hear this whole red thing? If it's not on the screen I don't buy it.

Have you ever read one of the novels? Wookiees are BIG on symbolism.

When the movies do things that completely contradict main stories from the novels like let's say anything involving Boba Fett then I'd say that's a pretty good reason to consider those things to be little more than overglorified fanfics.
