    I thought that Luke entered the carbon freezing chamber in the hole that Han Solo was lowered into

    I remember getting in a huge argument with a friend of mine over the size of an XWing vs the size of the Lambda Class Shuttle. I had one of the micro machines XWings, and as we were playing I "landed" the XWing and said my pilot got out. My friends was like "Did you lower the ramp?" I was like "What ramp?, I just jumped down from where the pilot sits". My friend threw this huge fit saying there was no way someone could just get out of an XWing because it's "too big", and I needed to land in a space port with ladders and elevators, and he's like "didn't you see the ramp in Return of the Jedi when Darth Vader got out of the XWing!!!" (referring to the Lambda Shuttle)

    He was always a little salty after that. So funny the things kids argue about.

    You do still need a ladder to get down from an X-Wing though...

    To get down comfortably, sure, but the ship isn't so large that you couldn't just shimmy down the side or hang off an s-foil and drop down. But trying to argue that with a petulant 8 year old (as a petulant 8 year old) wasn't very successful.

    Yes, he was knocked backwards into it, but, jumped backed out before vader could make him a Popsicle. "Impressive, Most Impressive!"

    I think that means when he first went in. He just went up an elevator

    I think James Skyrunner meant that he entered the room itself via whatever chamber Han had been lowered into - which isn't correct - however, Luke did fall/was knocked into the actual carbon chamber, then jumped out just before Vader activates the controls - "All too easy". Luke's leap out is a very quick visual effect.

    Vader then sees Luke dangling from some cables above, having escaped - "Impressive! Most Impressive."

    Actually I thought the original post thought that han freezing chamber was a different one than Luke fell into later ..I was saying they were cuz Vadar says reset the chamber for Skywalker and make sure he finds his way in here

    I'm pretty young so this one counts


    TCW episodes aired in chronological order.
    I didn't even notice the first episode of S3, because I never payed attention to clone names.

    That "Forest Moon of Endor" meant "Forest Moon called Endor".

    I thought that after ESB, Luke went back to finish his training with Yoda, made a new lightsaber, complete his training and just then, went back to Tatooine to save Han.

    I also thought that Return Of The Jedi would include Luke going back to Cloud City looking for his lightsaber and his X-Wing.

    In ESB, I used to think that Darth Vader said "Set your course for the hot system." And amusingly, I thought that Boba Fett said "He's no good to me, Dad." Thus referring to Vader as his father.

    Some from a new hope.

    1. When Obi-Wan is fighting Vader, I thought Obi-Wan was really weak in the force. The reason for this was because there are some weird shots of obi-wan's light saber where the camera is looking at the tip of the lightsaber. From my perspective, it looked like his lightsaber was getting shorter at these angles. I thought Obi-wan was getting weak in the force because he was so old, and couldn't even activate his lightsaber at full length for the majority of the fight.

    2. I thought Leia was a witch, because I misheard the "she's rich" exchange.

    When I first saw the promo pics used for ROTJ I thought the Death Star was actually the wreckage of the original Death Star.

    By the time the Galactic Civil War began in earnest, Jango Fett's clones were heavily supplanted by clones based on a variety of templates around 9 BBY,[2]followed shortly after by enlisted Humans.

    That was a little over the top. I certainly don't claim to out Star Wars anyone. I've seen the films dozens of times, but my EU knowledge is... Well it's pretty much non existent. I've read a few EU books, but nothing in between 3/4 except Death Troopers, and frankly, that book was just pure fan fiction at the end.

    My comment has only the movies to blame in which Lucas made it seem like clones were in charge of everything. I had my own idea that the clones would all be dead by time of Star Wars anyways. Glad to hear that was right. I have much to learn! :)
