Hmm... That's a VERY interesting take on that. I don't know if I buy it 100%, but I certainly can't find much fault in it. Definitely ties together a few things that I just thought were fan service like the appearance of Chewbacca in III. I'd never even considered the possibility of Chewbacca or R2 having such important roles in the Rebellion.

I seem to remember, in one of the old West End SW RPG books, a historical anecdote from the R5-D4 droid that Owen Lars almost bought. It seems R5 had been chatting with R2 during the trip, and when it was evident that R2 wasn't going to be sold, the R5 blew his own motivator deliberately.

He was later repaired and sold to New Republic historian Voren Na'al.

The only big flaw in that story is that, from what I recall, Chewbacca spent a large portion of his life imprisoned by the Imperials. Han Solo was an up-and-coming officer in the Imperial Navy when he saw how the Wookiees were being treated and made the mistake of objecting. Seeing his career going down in flames and the enslavement of another race, he managed to smuggle Chewbacca out of custody... which is why Chewie has a life-debt to Han.

The thing that I don't get, now that they tie in that C-3P0 spent all those years at the Lars moisture farm, why Owen didn't tell the Jawas to take their droids and take a hike. Because even though Threepeeo doesn't recognize him, he sure as shooting should recognize the droid and figure that that wouldn't be the best thing that those droids anywhere near the farm. He always wanted Kenobi as far away from his family as possible, but couldn't get the law (imperials) on him for attracting too much attention on his own self.

Anyway according to the "Heir to the Empire" Trilogy, the Rebellion was founded by Mon Mothma (of Chandrilla), Bail Organa (of Alderaan) and Garm Bel Iblis (of Corellia)
