Lucasfilm Creator Kindly Answers Star Wars Question We Probably Should Have Known The Answer To

If you’ve ever read the novelization of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back then you probably know exactly how to spell the name of the bipedal pack animals that Luke and Han are riding on Hoth at the beginning of the film. If, however, you’ve only ever heard the word, then yeah, it could be spelled numerous different ways that would make sense.

In addition to giving fans the proper spelling, he also clues us in to one of the rules of properly spelling the names of various species within the Star Wars universe. Apparently, the names for sentient species are capitalized. However, the names of “creatures” which is to say non-sentient animals, are not capitalized. The interesting exception to this rule being the word “human” which is not capitalized. Even Matt Martin seems confused by that one.

So if you’re a Twi’lek or a Mandalorian, you get to capitalize your species, but if you’re a tauntaun or a mynock, no such luck. I suppose it all certainly makes some sense. Of course, one assumes that no non-sentient creatures had a say in this decision.

Of course, in the end, Matt Martin wants everybody to know that misspelling a made-up word is not the stoning offense that some might make it seem to be. He’s not trying to make people feel bad, just having some fun while also sharing some knowledge.

Justice League’s Jason Momoa Puts Support Behind Co-Star Ray Fisher’s Battle With Warner Bros.

Jason Momoa’s support here is a potentially powerful statement. While Justice League as a production was something of a flop, Momoa’s solo Aquaman movie was a massive hit. A sequel has already been given the green light, which means that Momoa’s relationship with DC, and by extension Warner Bros., is ongoing, and important to both sides. Fisher has been the only one speaking out about whatever it was that happened on the set of Justice League, and Momoa could easily stay out of this as most everybody else has done. Though, to be fair, staying quiet on issues isn’t exactly Jason Momoa’s style.
