Take the word "plantation" -- it contains the consecutive letters of the movie Patton reading from left to right, although not consecutively. What familiar word contains the letters of Star Wars, reading from left to right, and not necessarily consecutively?

I spent about an hour on this and came up with....Don't want to be a spolier...if it's right...



scroll down...


...





stairwalkers.
Although I'm not sure that would be considered a familiar word. But to the right industry it is.

I like Kevin's answer. It may not be in the dictionaries just yet, but
I'll bet it's only a matter of time before it becomes "official."

And it reminds me of "Skywalker."

Very good, Kevin.

Well if someones wants the clue words I came up with and try to finish it here thye are...
I think the words needs to ends in one of these:
wares
wears
waters
walkers
watchers
wallers
wards
wardens
warts


that's how I started working on it....was finding the words that would hold wars.

But I obviously havnt got it all figured out yet.
