Princess Leia's cell was named after an obscure film made by an avant-garde filmmaker from Montreal. Lucas included the detail as an homage to 21-87, which made a deep impression on him when he saw it as a film student at the University of Southern California....

We'll look for whatever mundane and little thing we can find just to tie our country to that movie, huh? [Big Grin]

"DID YOU HEAR?! George Lucas came up with the word 'Wookie' while watching a Toronto Maple Leafs game at the Gardens!" (no, not really.)

... Not saying there's anything wrong with it, just seems a little obscure to me. [Big Grin]

I hear the ice world of Hoth was inspired by much of the Canadian north. [Wink] Several Wookies have been spotted in the Yukon.
