person: are you ok? me: yeah i just think marcia lucas, george lucas ex-wife, should be more praised in the star wars fandom cause she literally saved the franchise in the 70′s. marcia was the one who had all the good ideas (like killing obi-wan, the “a kiss for luck” sequence) and was the one who had to edit the entire movie cause the first cut of ANH was an incomprehensible mess. marcia is also responsable for the existence of the battle of yavin aka the sequence where the good guys win over the empire. george lucas was, most of the time, tripping on acid and would’ve end up ruined if not for marcia’s ideas and actions. without marcia lucas, star wars would’ve flopped so hard we’d probably never even been hearing about star wars til these days. she left the sw franchise after her divorce with GL, during the production of ESB (but she kept working on ROTJ). her work provided her with an Oscar of Best Film Editing for ANH. wondering why george lucas never made a good sw movie after she left?

The tragedy of Han Solo as a character: He always prided himself on being mean, sharp and cynical. Until the final moments of life, when he abandoned every belief he had previously held and honestly believed “love” would win out at the end. Then he got killed.
