    I often wonder if E.T.'s species is a part of the Star Wars galaxy. The aliens in the Senate look like E.T.'s, but I also think that E.T. can use the Force (like when he would move objects on Earth in E.T.).

    Steven Spielberg once said E.T came from the Star Wars galaxy, so I suppose The Phantom Menace confirms it!

    "I also think that E.T. can use the Force"

    "Steven Spielberg once said E.T came from the Star Wars galaxy"

    That's pretty funny. [face_laugh] I had never made that connection, though I had never heard that quote, either.

    I guess E.T. has a very long lineage. ;)

    Tis just a little Easter Egg nod towards a friend.

    Which makes it canon and perhaps even the E.T. movie itself canon. I don't know about that one though.

    The ET movie is EU. Choose whether or not it's canon at your own discretion.

    I wonder if they should put an Infinities label on that movie from now on! [face_laugh]

    Oh it's canon allright to me.

    That is an interesting thing though. It confirms that the GFFA has visited Earth or even better that Earth is in the GFFA. :p

    No, Earth has to be in a different galaxy, otherwise we contradict the bit about "In a galaxy far far away," natch.

    Perhaps the ETs just made more progress with the Outbound Flight Project.

    Unless that was thrown in there to make everyone think that the GFFA is fictional. Earth could very well be in the Unknown Regions and Lucas an ex-Rebel who decided to settle down on an unknown planet.

    "to make everyone think that the GFFA is fictional."

    Am I the only one who sees the problem inherent in this statement? [face_laugh]

    E.T pretty much went nuts saying "home, home" when he saw the kid dressed as Yoda for halloween...

    I did, I just thought that part was funny. E_V knows all too well I like to pick on him. ;)

    So that Jorg Sacul figure was telling the truth? :eek:

    Actually, in time tales, there's something about a time capsule falls into GL's back yard from the SW galaxy, maybe E.T. followed it.

    ET took place on Earth, didn't it. I guess that makes us all canon. Cool, I'm canon.

    They also had SW toys in the movie. Weird.

    Yeah, MBJ is a bully to me. :(

    Perhaps there was a space battle and the time capsule is just debris that landed in the backyard of GL. Who then contacted the Rebels and got this great "story" idea.

    Oh and for the record, I'm one of the ones who feels that Earth is in the UR and SW is real and takes place in our galaxy. :p

    I don't know if the movie ET can be considered Canon or not. I mean, the ET species itself obviously is as we see it in TPM. But the story of that particular ET... kind of sketchy.

    But yes, it makes Earth at least part of Star Wars EU. Wrap your head around that one. And while you are, I'll be over here looking through your stuff.

    But the fact that Elliot has Star Wars toys kind of screws up E.T. and Star Wars being in the same universe as it means that Star Wars is a movie in the E.T. Universe.

    No, it just means that by the time of the movie ET, some movies based on a true story called "Star Wars" have been made ;)

    Which mean Star Wars is real, and the Skywalker family's decendants can sue Lucas.

    Oh and exactly how do people on earth know about these true stories when a. there is no intergalactic travelling and b. if there were how would they be able to communicate with us?

    I think that perhaps you're taking this a tiny bit too seriously.

    SW has always been attached to our galaxy through the very nature of being a long time before us, and far far away from us. If you take into account the "theory" that the "journal of the whills" somehow crashed in Lucas' back yard, it would explain why Elliot showed E.T. his Star Wars figures. In that case, Star Wars really happened, and Lucas made movies based on them.
