Star Wars Challenge Day 23

Something you wished was different.

Guess what - I actually know what I'm going to talk about!  A miracle, I know...

The thing I wished was different is...

Stewjon.

Yes, kind of silly and not actually from the movies, but this is what I want different.

Stewjon is the name of Obi-Wan's home planet, and was created at Celebration V.  During the Main Event, an interview with George Lucas by Jon Stewart, George was asked what the name of Obi-Wan's home planet was.  George answered, "this is one of the first things I wrote in the very first script. He comes from the planet Stewjon."

Now nothing against Jon Stewart, whose name provided the base for Stewjon, but I really don't like it.  I guess you could say it's ok because there are stranger names in the galaxy far far away, but I would have liked for the planet Obi-Wan comes from to have a prettier name.

I used to want to know where Obi-Wan was from, but now I wish I didn't.  And I no longer have any desire to know where Qui-Gon is from!

Here's what he and Obi-Wan were saying before the interview.

  2. Yeah, it is kind of a weird name. I liked the name for the one people were saying was it- which was Ator.

  3. I think Qui-Gon came from the planet Barbo-spar. Oh wait, I think it was Ragi-tel. Actually, I remember now, it was Araggins

  4. Kinda of a bad name compared to other names of planets.
