    So I was watching Return of the Jedi today and noticed something I never noticed before: an Ewok smoking a pipe while C-3PO was telling his story.

    I've seen this movie countless times, but this was the first that I saw this.

    That's what I'd call rusticated. I think Yoda would've smoked a churchwarden.

    I wonder if it's part of the original or something Lucas digitally added when he re-mastered the release...

    Just given how "popular" smoking is, I'm guessing part of the original, but I'd be curious to know if anyone has the original release on DVD (most people don't because it's about twice as expensive... Lucas did this on the original trilogy to make it jive better with his second - just wrong in my opinion.).

    It's in the original. I've noticed it in the past, but didn't think anything of it until you just mentioned it.

    Though I haven't thought of it, I believe I remember this from watching it in the theatre.

    For the record, you can't light a pipe with a lightsaber. If they can plasma cut through blast doors, I don't see a clay pipe surviving them either.

    (Han Solo should smoke a Falcon, BTW). :)

    I guess we can imagine Chewbacca's tobacco of choice...(I wonder if he ever used R2D2 as a spitoon?)

    I don't think that a clay would do well in the swampy climate of Degoba. He probably would smoke a meer carved by lightsaber in his own likeness.

    Jaba is also seen smoking, but it's more of a hookah.

    Haha, I noticed this last time I watched Return of the Jedi. I don't know how I got to be in college before I noticed it- I watched the Star Wars films non-stop when I was growing up. Though admittedly, Return of the Jedi is my least-watched Star Wars film.
