'Twas actually his idea, back when he came to Cleveland to do the signing tour. I got all excited because animation is my intended major, and he thought it would be really nifty to see, so that's my ultimate goal.

    If you could live in the Star Wars galaxy for a day, what planet would you go to and why? ? I'd go to Alderaan, because I really want to know what the planet was like before it was destroyed. That, and the artistic community was supposedly amazing.
