I always knew Lucas made it up as he went along. (The Star Wars Blogathon)

Andrew got the answer to yesterday's question right:  the Hoth scenes in The Empire Strikes Back were filmed (in part) on Hardangerjøkulen Glacier in Finse, Norway. You can get a guidebook to tour the glaciers, Empire-style (I don't know what that means but it sounded good). You won't be able to find the actual entrance to the Rebel base; that was a matte painting, according to that guidebook.

And now Question 79: What major character from Episodes V and VI did George Lucas originally intend to be a clone from a planet of clones that started The Clone Wars?

The picture to the left is Emma Stone in a Stand Up to Cancer t-shirt; apparently, Star Wars vs. Cancer T-shirts were a thing last fall and I didn't even know it

This is an obscure one, and I'm gonna try the answer without checking to make sure.

The answer is Lando Calrissian.

Good question!

Chewie! No, wait. R2. Robots can be clones, right?
