Lucasfilm (kinda sorta) Okays Ackbar's Candidacy for Mascot! (but not really)


From the New York Times comes this excerpt from a statement released by Lucasfilm. Lucasfilm is flattered that our Star Wars fans at the University of Mississippi are considering electing Admiral Ackbar as their mascot. The last time we checked in with Admiral Ackbar he was leading the Rebel Alliance Fleet on a critical mission so it will be difficult for him to show up for the games! Alright, George. We know you came up with Jar Jar Binks and all, but you don't have to talk to everybody like they're four.
