    In one of the most glorious moments of my life, I was chosen to do my best Chewbacca impersonation in front of everybody waiting for George Lucas to speak. Did anybody here record that? I would love to be able to share the footage with friends and family. You may have also heard my wookiee growl echoing throughout the convention space at various times.

    I am a large man with a beard, as seen here: http://eriksogn.com/me/ERIK_100814_7844.jpg

    If anybody has this footage, or knows anybody who has this footage, it would be awesome if I could get it from you!

    No but I'd say the odds are very good. People were rolling on just about everything in there.

    i might have a few more on my computer as well, if you want.. although probably those two are the best in general.

    I didn't, but I just wanted to compliment you on a good job. Nothing's more annoying than the folks who just do the rolled, "r-r-r-r-r-r-r.." thanks for showing that other guy up, you represented us Wookiees well, Ovular-Modulation for the win!=D=
