Star Wars in FrenchFebruary 25th, 2015
French people will already know all of this stuff, but many of us have no idea what are favorite Star Wars characters are called in French. The Millennium Falcon is the Millénium Condor. Makes sense. Chewie is Chico. Jabba the Woodsman? Weird. Maybe he was a lumberjack and we never got that backstory. He probably destroyed whole Ewok villages. Z-6PO?
