Regarding Ewoks in ROTJ, I remember seeing something years ago, that Lucas originally wanted to make a planet of Wookies.
It could’ve been on a Discovery Channel program. However, since the Chewbacca costume was made of horse hair, and was extremely expensive, they had to change it completely. Make a planet of small creatures, using less expensive material. The name Ewok came from Economical Wookie = EWOK.

Yak hair actually. And what the heck is a Wookie? 😉

Well, that sounds even more expensive than Horse hair. Oops, Wookiee.

I’d be much more excited for a Lando spin-off than I am for the Han one.
Lando seems to have a much more interesting backstory. Going from a rogue like Han to a successful business man and a respected leader before we ever meet him.

Me too. I really dislike the idea of young Han movie. Even if they somehow manage it to work and not be like any other “young this” prequels, it still isn’t something that we would ever need. Lando’s story seems much more interesting and it would be fun to have some kind of womanazing stories in SW universe in some casino-type locations etc. And depending how young he would be, it could end where he would get Cloud City and be like “WTF did I just do…”.

That’s a great idea. We don’t know much about Lando outside of the OT. If done correctly, could be an interesting, fun movie.
