Continuity: The novel, though based on George Lucas’s original screenplay and credited to him, was actually ghostwritten by Alan Dean Foster, and formerly titled Star Wars: from the Adventures of Luke Skywalker. The question of how “official” the novelizations of the films are is a much-debated one among aficionados; as they were written based on earlier drafts of the screenplays, certain minor discrepancies can be found, and these are the cause of much consternation. For instance, in A New Hope, the Cantina scene is radically different from the one in the film, and in The Empire Strikes Back, Hobbie is apparently killed, but his character has survived through many of the books. Minor differences in dialogue can also be found, but the fact remains that the novels are the generally the only source of scenes were shot or written for the film, but did not survive the final edit.
