Do you have a favorite alien species in the Star Wars universe? My wife’s answer was very clear, “Whatever Hondo is!” was her response. I try to think about what it must have been like to see the Cantina sequence in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope for people who were able to see it in theaters. The possibilities of the universe would have felt unbounded. I likely would have tried to draw the wildest aliens I could imagine fitting somewhere in the corners of the galaxy.
