why would the "real" Reggie be considered a Burmese Python, but the in-film Reggie not? Just not sure why that needed to be split out to a Behind the Scenes.

  • It's the Wookieepedia logic: if something isn't mentioned in an official source, it's not canon. Adamwankenobi 01:23, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

but Star Wars is a completely fictional world. Indiana Jones isn't. Colt 45 has a entry as the firearm used by Indiana Jones, not "the model of weapon used by Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones" and the name Colt 45 was never mentioned in the films. The logic doesn't really apply here as most of the items in the Indiana Jones world are real world items, creatures, locations, etc Knowing a snake is a certain breed in our real world and applying that to the breed of snake in the film does not sound at all a stretch. I just think the logic doesn't apply as well here if a real world item can be identified for what it is.

That's fair enough that the novel says he's a boa constrictor, but I still think that applying real world identification to the world of Indiana Jones is a fair thing when that object or creature can be identified. If you guys don't think so, that's fine. I'm just Indy fan and trying to help. BobBeezer

So you gets asps in the Well of Souls and not plastic-toy-snakes-shipped-in-because-there-aren't-enough-live-snakes ;) Vetinari (Appointment) 02:10, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
