    A little tidbit that was to hot for IMDB or any site about star wars

    I went to High School with a boy named Skywalker, when i was in G12 he was in G9. He was not really a friend but I knew his family as they worked with my dad. He was named after a Native American shamon translated as Skywalker or Windwalker

    Sky was born in 1970. Sky used to live in Marion County CA. Sky's dad was at a yuppy wine and cheese party in Marion County in about 1972 or 1973 and was talking with a guy named George about his toddler son. George wrote his son's name down

    Skywalker may have been a Native American name, that makes sense, a few years ago, they taught me about native american indian names, and a lot of their names had to either do with nature or had noun-verb in them combined, or their/the last names.....

    Luke was supposed to be Starkiller until they shoot the scene where he finds Leia and introduces himself. There was a character named Luke Skywalker in the early drafts.

    There was a NBA player whose nickname was Skywalker.

    The kid I knew named Skywalker was born in 1970 the party ware his dad was talking to George Lucas was in 72 or 73 and looking at my script collection the first mention of Skywalker I can find is in the May 1973 Story Synopsis ware Luke Skywalker is still the name of the general

    Yeah, right.

    And the story synopsis was May 1973, not 1972.

    I knew that as soon as I hit post and went back to fix it as you were pointing it out

    Uh huh.

    So after little more than a month's worth of poorly-spelled, smart-arsed posts on the Ep 7 forum, largely around some fan fiction called JEDI CHICKS, you honestly expect anyone to believe this claptrap?

    Wasn't it Starkiller until pretty late into the script writing phase?

    I think that's enough of this particular tangent. Darth Boba

    Fine, I'll mention it to him at lunch tomorrow.

    Too many crumbcake sandwiches around right now. I suppose it's to be expected after the Ep 7 announcement.
