Funny, I always imagined the Hrossa to be more like Wookies, only their faces were not quite the same, and their voices, in my mind, were more human (as much as I love Chewie's roar...)


Messenger, I agree with some of what you say. Hrossa are tall like Wookies, not short like Ewokes. So physically and in appearance they would be much closer to Chewie. But they are quiet, gentle creatures, at least as far as I understand them, but brave and courageous in battle. This is more like the Ewokes. No Ewoke would tear someone's arm off if he lost a game of holographic chess, but Han warns that Chewbacca had been known to do this sort of thing.

Gentle? They might look like teddy bears, but I remember the Ewoks as being vicious little savages. :) They also had an amazing number of - albeit primitive - war engines set up and just waiting.

The Ewoks did have an edge to them. But I understood they were defending their territory. If Darth Vader and his Storm Troopers were always tramping around your planet your might be a little defensive too.

The gentle part comes from the scene where one Ewok sees another (his beloved? her beloved?) has been killed and laments pathetically.

But weren't the Wookies kind of gentle too?

I don't remember that they were.

I always thought the Wookies were like gentle warriors. They are "good" but you don't want to cross them.

The thing I was thinking of was in Star Wars I where Han tells R2 to be careful because Wookies have been known to tear peoples' arms off when they lose at holographic chess. This doesn't sound like they have a particuarly gentle dispoisiton to me!

True, but remember Han rubbing Chewie's head (I think in ESB)? The relationship between Han and Chewie has its gentle moments. Also in ESB Chewie put C-3PO back together and that entire time of carrying 3PO around on his back certainly seems to show a gentle side to the Wookie temperment. I think the above quote is more an example of the hot Wookie temper than a description of the entire species mentality.

O, ferkrynawtlawd! The hrossa are NOT Ewoks, and they are NOT Wookies! For all I know you'll next say the pfifltriggi are really quite a bit like Jar-Jar Binks! :shocked:

hahahahaha.
i love star wars, really, i do.
but i never once thought of the hrossa looking anything like either of the 2 species mentioned here. wookies are too incredibly temperamental,
and ewoks...
are...
cute... but...
i have to admit that at times it's difficult to believe that they're a sentient species... i mean... can you imagine?

ransom: here you go (not so) little fella...
have some of my dry, crummy space food.
hyoi: thanks man. let's be friends. i'll teach you how to kill stuff.

but then...
what if they looked more like the weird,
giant beavers in the live action BBC LWW...

muahahahaha

i'm sorry... this comment has hardly been helpful :wink:
but really... "what do we live for, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn."

More like Lord of the Rings

Actually the pfifltriggi appear to be inspired by the dwarves of the Brother's Grimm. They have all the dwarf-like characteristics of craftsmen who spend their time digging up and creating treasures. Although in the case of the pfifltriggi they share their creations with the other hnau rather than hord it as the dwarves have been known to do.

Im torn. I still think that the cosmic trilogy would not work as movies, yet i would love to see someone try. I would be too scared to see them though, as they could absolutely ruin the whole experience if they 'dumbed down' certain parts like they did with Narnia...

What about the nakedness of the Green Lady and Ransom? Movie audiences would never accept it nor understand it. Take away their nakedness and you remove a central theme from of the story.
