The Picky Bookworm

"Books are a uniquely portable magic." –Stephen King

May the Fourth be with you….

Today is a very special Movie Monday, because it’s STAR WARS DAY!

While I’m very much a Trekkie at heart, I can’t resist a holiday designed for nerds! So let’s talk….About Star Wars!

My favorite movie in the Star Wars franchise is, and always will be, The Return of The Jedi. This is because the Ewoks are really cool! Luke is able to find himself, and is able to reunite with the family he lost as a baby. This makes me feel all the feels, and the end makes me tear up a bit no matter how many times I see it.

The Story

Solo has been frozen in Carbonite, and is prisoner in Jabba the Hutt’s palace. Luke has come back from Degobah to free him, and ends up a prisoner himself. Of course they’re able to get free, with the help of R2-D2 and C-3P0. On to more desperate matters…

The Republic is building a bigger, better Death Star, and is determined to find and destroy the Resistance.

Even though I’m pretty sure everyone in the world has seen at least parts of The Return of The Jedi, I’m still trying not to give spoilers. Let’s talk, instead, about the Ewoks….

I have had friends that give me all sorts of crap about my love of the Ewoks. But they’re SO CUTE! They are also all warriors in their own rights. This one is my favorite:

This little guy is my favorite because he makes friends with Leia, and helps her when she can’t help herself. He leads her to his village, and when the others show up, this little guy saves them from being killed. But know what else? Look at that face! He’s so freaking cute!

Who is your favorite Star Wars character? Obscure or not, it doesn’t matter! You’ll never find judgment here 🙂

Happy Star Wars Day, everyone! Until next time, bookworms!
