May the 4th Be With You – A Tribute To Some Of My Favorite Characters From Star Wars

4 May

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!

Princess Leia, shown here in slave outfit. Jabba the Hut had her in his evil clutches as the princess distracts everyone to save Luke and ultimately herself.

      Vader is wearing shoes? I didn’t notice.

        Well… that’s just shocking.

    Are you sure they are different? I was going strictly by memory…

    I think I need to watch “Star Wars” again, I wasn’t paying enough attention… I especially hadn’t realized how cute would be once you shave all his hair off. Oh great, now I’m attracted to Chewbacca…

    Not exactly the faces (or bodies) I imagined when I clicked on your article!

    I don’t remember the droids nipping out so much, but I haven’t watched it on hi-def blu-ray yet.

    I think Chewy is now my favorite Star Wars character

      As well as he/she should be…

        As for the “real” Star Wars, my favorites? The heroes are a given and of course, Chewie is cool. But I also like Dark Helmet because of the cool voice. David Prouse was kind of pissed they didn’t use his gentle English voice, not menacing enough, and nobody ever saw his real face, even in the end when they even showed another actor in his place. Go figure.

        But he can still say he was Darth Vader…how cool is that?

    If Darth Vader had looked like that, would the guys have cared if there was a darkness in the force?

    My children had R2D2 and Princess Leia Under Roos. Remember those?

    • Christopher De Voss September 12, 2013 at 8:34 AM #

      I do! I wore mine down to just the waistband remaining.

        Do you know how many women laugh at shirtless men and say, “That one could wear a size 46 B.”

        Do you know how to get rid of a flasher? You point at the offending appendage, laugh and say, “Oh. My. God. Oscar Mayer just lost one of their mini links.”

        I know. 😦 😉

    I think I may have just had a stroke. This is awesome. Beyond awesome. I will not show it to my kids, but I’m going to forward the hell out of it to my wife. Best post ever. I mean that. My love for Star Wars knows no bounds, but I think you have just made it even better. Hot hot hot!

    Hi Christopher: Thanks for the follow!! We’re checking out your blog right now. As for this post, Star Wars never looked so good!! These ladies give the Galaxy a whole new spin & have one ready to pull out their laser! Clearly this is what Han Solo meant when he told Luke “May the force be with you.” He must’ve known he’d need all the help he could get! 😉 Sharing now!

    • Christopher De Voss August 22, 2014 at 11:45 PM #

      Thank you! I’ll return the favor. This is my old blog. My new home is at It’s myself and a bunch of other funny writers, plus a podcast. You rock!
