We sleep in Star Wars sheets, teach our kids to read with Star Wars primers and fill the Internet with Star Wars gossip. Let's be real: We live in the Star Wars universe. Hoth, specifically, it seems. The Disney megafranchise is heating up again with a new batch of movies, perhaps a neverending one, starting in 2015 with Episode VII: Han Solo Dies. (We made that up.)
George Lucas is an honorary Chicagoan now, after his marriage to local busineswoman extraordinaire Mellody Hobson. Our city might soon be the home of the George Lucas Museum (but it will hopefully not house these items). Time Out recently ranked the top 50 Stars Wars characters ever. So we decided to cast some of Chicago's major players as heroes and villains in a galaxy far, far away.
