May the 4th is an unofficial holiday to celebrate all things Star Wars. Just in case you are unfamiliar, May the 4th be with you is a pun of May the force be with you…which of course is a famous line from the films.
Being a huge Star Wars fan as a kid, I thought I would pay tribute to some of my favorite characters:
Han Solo was the ultimate hero. Reckless and cool, Solo got the girl and saved the universe.
Chewbacca was Han Solo’s copilot and faithful friend. He also had a funny side, which appeared several times throughout the movies.
R2-D2 and C3PO act as the film’s catalysis as they weave the universe and the Star Wars saga together from Darth Vader creating C3PO as a boy, to their help in destroying the Death Star.
Darth Maul, a great character that died way too soon.
The Stormtroopers – at first seem just a mindless, expendable army, but later you learn they are clones of Boba Fett.
Boba Fett a bounty hunter on the hunt after Han Solo. This character is iconic even though his part is relatively small. Many fans want a Boba Fett movie.
The Star Wars universe was populated with many creatures and is limitless in imagination.
The baddest of the bad, scariest of the scary…evil personified, Darth Vader!
