    I've heard it postulated that this might be the case - even that Dave Filoni of the Clone Wars enquired about using the planet of 'Willow'. This the case do you think?

    Where did you hear this besides Filoni?

    I've never heard this mentioned before.

    I don't see why it couldn't be.

    For now, unless GL changes something it's nonsense. The Star Wars website had an April Fools gag in it's data bank in April of 2006 that put willow in the continuity. It was a just a gag however.

    E.T. ended up in TPM, a kid in a Yoda mask was in E.T. & was recognised by the little fella - I say yes, let's bring Willow into the GFFA, along with Howard The Duck, Dave Bowman's pod, asteroid-sized potatoes & Han Solo's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great nephew two thousand times removed, Bob Falfa.

    And finally, the Other referred to by Yoda in ESB can be revealed - Mad Martigan, ancestor of Vietnam war hero, Terry The Toad, who would eventually bring balance to the Force by blowing up a latrine in More American Graffiti. The circle was already completed before The Empire Strikes Back was even started, but no one was paying attention.

    Oh, it's another Willow thread?


    But, no, Willow isn't officially in the GFFA.

    Nub, I think you have now made all of those films unwatchable.









    Okay not really.

    Actually, Willow was an Ewok. About 50,000 years of evolution got rid of the fur.

    Wait a minute, I thought Star Wars was the sequel saga to Willow? That's why I was always so disappointed...ANH is just a bunch of kiddie stuff and wooden dialogue compared to Willow! :eek:

    I agree that this is nonsense. Not that Willow bas bad, but it doesn't mesh at all with Star Wars.

    Well I support Willow being a part of the SW Saga. I've always considered it to be like a prequel to the prequels.

    If you really wanted to bring all the George Lucas films together, Willow would work better as a LOTR-style forgotten Dark Age on Earth, perhaps referenced in an Indiana Jones film (and there's going to be more), in a similar way to the C-3PO & R2-D2 hieroglyphics in Raiders. Some ridiculous retcon could explain magic as being introduced to the characters of Willow via 'visitors from the sky' who explained how to utilise 'the Force of Others'.

    Ironically, THX-1138 would be the very last entry in this massive saga, technically being the one set chronologically last (Earth future).

    So the time would be:

    -Willow and the prequels

    -the OT

    -Indiana Jones

    -flyboys?

    THX-1138

    You'll truly impress me if you can fit in the Dark Tower series somehow, too. :p

    No, the timeline would be:

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away
    - The Phantom Menace
    - Attack Of The Clones
    - The Clone Wars
    - Revenge Of The Sith
    - Droids
    - A New Hope
    - Star Wars Holiday Special
    - Caravan Of Courage
    - Battle For Endor
    - Ewoks
    - The Empire Strikes Back
    - Return Of The Jedi

    Much, much later, on Earth
    - Willow

    Several thousand years later
    - Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom
    - Raiders Of The Lost Ark
    - Red Tails
    - Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade
    - Indiana Jones & The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull
    - American Graffiti
    - More American Graffiti
    - THX-1138

    Whoops, forgot E.T. & Howard The Duck, they fit in between More American Graffiti & THX-1138.
