Most Insane Star Wars Fan Theories That Are Too Good Not to Be True

Star Wars takes place in our galaxy

I am aware of the opening words of Star Wars, but I'm still going to see this one through. After all, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" sounds like complete horseshit, right?

There's lots of evidence that Hutts and Mynocks and *sigh* even Gungans are from the Milky Way. Besides the fact that there are humans everywhere in Star Wars, a lot of the evidence comes from other sci-fi universes that hook in with Star Wars. Look hard enough and you can find links to Star Trek, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and even the work of Isaac Asimov.

But those are all ambiguous references at best. The strongest link to our galaxy comes from (gulp) Episode I.

Yep, that's E.T.'s brethren right there, participating in the galactic senate while also being butt-ass naked. We know they've been to Earth, which means that it's pretty likely we share a galaxy. More proof can be seen in the E.T. movie proper; when the titular alien spots a kid in a Yoda costume, he starts following him and murmurs "Home." It seems as though E.T. was familiar with Yoda's species, and was hoping to get help from a friendly face from his part of the galaxy.

What's more likely: That the E.T. species has developed a form of intergalactic space travel and haven't told anyone else in the Star Wars universe? Or maybe Earth is actually in the Star Wars canon, and no one has thought to bother with a backwater planet like ours? One thing's for sure: Fans definitely do not have too much time on their hands.
