UPDATE: A winner has been announced! Check this post for all the details.

Star Wars is kind of a big deal for the LiveJournal U.S. crew. We can break into a conversation about our favorite moments in a galaxy far, far away faster than Luke Skywalker can start complaining about missing a trip to Toshi Station to pick up power converters.

To celebrate the release of the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray, we're giving away a Star Wars gift pack to one LiveJournal user who writes our favorite Star Wars movie pitch in Friday's Writer's Block on the LiveJournal homepage. The winner will receive a copy of the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray (or DVD equivalent* if you don't have a Blu-ray player) and a few other Star Wars related items.

Your movie pitch could be anything. Write a sequel, a prequel, or anything in-between. You're eligible as long as your story takes place in the Star Wars universe. Entering is easier than bull's-eyeing womp rats in your T-16 back home but winning will require... A creative force, if you will.

General rules:
Keep submissions limited to 300 words or less
No droids allowed!

* The Blu-ray version of the Star Wars saga is not being released on DVD at this time. A winner requesting the DVD version of the films will receive the most recent release of the Star Wars films available on the DVD format.

How Chewy met Solo.

This is the real story behind the partnership between Chewbacca and Han Solo.

Han freed Chewbacca from a forced-labour mining colony while on a smuggling run. He says it was out of the goodness of his heart, but Chewbacca knows that it's because Han needed him to help blast past the guards and escape the authorities that were onto him.

Chewbacca had been sentenced to the colony camp for killing his wife's lover in a jealous rage, and before he was arrested he'd stolen a spaceship and skipped three planets over. In the colony camp Chewy went through an almost stereotypical prison-based spiritual awakening, changes his ways, and became a philosopher. He saw Han as a kindred soul who he could help get onto his own right path, and that's the real reason he escaped with Han.

They then became a great Space Team and went through the galaxy having adventures and getting in trouble.
