    One could argue that Jar Jar was an instantiation of the early idea of having Han Solo be a froglike alien.

    True. Frog Solo did have gills. So amphibious sidekick :p

    I too remember the name General Granicus. Also, Vader’s suit was originally just a space suit. At the beginning of ANH, Vader went zero-g to float from the Imperial ship to board the captured Rebel ship.

    Let’s mash-up some of the stuff from this thread so far.

    General Granicus is leading the Legions of Lettow in a search for the sacred Kaiburr Crystal, which has the power to restore a dead Force-user to life. He floats from ship to ship to board the spacecraft above the planet Aquilae carrying Supreme Chancellor Cos Da**** and his loyal bodyguards Deak and Nomi Starkiller…

    :-B :p

    Hmm wasn't 7-9 originally ment to be about Luke finding his sister with his force ghost father, but because they were finishing with RTJ Leia became Lukes sister instead.

    It was indeed, and the Emperor wasn't supposed to be in RotJ, so yeah. But that is done, so the question is what is 7-9 now?

    If this thread had been called "Unknown unused Lucas Star Wars concepts," it probably wouldn't be as interesting. I just thought I'd point this out. [face_thinking]

    True, who knows what else he has thought of since the 1970's, aside from Jar Jar

    Weren't they originally going to have Nick Nolte play Han Solo? I though I read that in Entertainment magazine when ROTS came out.

    Not even an Egg Macguffin? With bacon or sausage?

    As mentioned, some of the early scripts also had an "ending crawl"... that might be a neat way to finish up at the end of Episode 9. Basically an "And they lived happily ever after," in a different phrasing (or not!).
