[About the origin of "Chewbacca"] There was a dog in American Graffiti
(1973), but I didn't use "Indiana" for the part because it was a night scene and I wanted a white dog. My wife was very upset that I didn't put my own dog in the movie; so I said I'd put Indiana's spirit in the next one. And that's how the "Wookiee" came into being.
