What Roles Would “Star Wars” Characters Have in Meetings?

By Matt Swenson, December 14, 2015

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, the “Star Wars” characters would have made for an interesting movie about meetings. Since no Force is strong enough to make that happen, we’ll imagine how it would have played out in real life. Because “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” doesn’t open until later this week, we can’t predict where the new stars fit in. But in sticking with the film’s marketing style of ignoring the prequels, we relied on a few original favorites (with one exception) for creating this exotic meetings entourage.
