Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (My Two Favorite Characters)

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (My Two Favorite Characters)

What better way to end and begin a New Year than relaxing and enjoying a StarWars marathon.

This time, as I watched these classics, I began noticing the wide array of character personalities that George Lucas created for his acclaimed series.

I thought you might enjoy a few of my StarWar-deian academic endeavors…

My two favorite characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story are the Ewoks and the Jabba the Hutt.


Facts about the Ewoks You My (or May Not) Know

You have to love these fierce teddy bears!

  1. Ewaoks were a one-meter in height ‘human’ species.
  2. They were omnivorous creatures who had no misgivings about eating Chewbacca, as well as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in a celebratory feast.
  3. Ewoks were covered, head to toe, by mostly solid colored fur. A few had a stripe or two.
  4. An Ewok had two fingers and a thumb on each hand.
  5. They were very strong creatures.
  6. Ewoks enjoyed living in ‘huts’ in the trees, but they did scavenger the grounds for berries, herbs, and hunting.
  7. Ewoks, though primitive, had mastered fire and were skilled at pottery and creating wooden structures.
  8. Their society centered in small villages built in the giant trees. The trees were sacred.  Between the trees and huts, the Ewoks built suspension bridges for easy access to different parts of their village and to allow them to stay clear of the forest floor. Knotted rope ladders were constructed to allow the needed access from the huts to the forest’s ground.
  9. The Ewoks spiritual leader was seen as a ‘medicine man’.
  10. Ewoks enjoyed playing music and singing in their celebrations and spiritual rituals.

Facts about Jabba the Hutt You My (or May Not) Know

  1. Jabba, the Hutt, was the primary crime lord of the Outer Rim.
  2. He controlled much of the Galactic underworld for centuries.
  3. Jabba was an ancient being, even compared to the Wookies. Jabba was well over 600 year old.
  4. The home planet for the Hutts was Nal Hutta- a marshy, desolate world with oily rains.
  5. Jabba’s criminal enterprises included gambling syndicates (Jabba’s favorite pastime), slave trading, trafficking in arms, drug smuggling (glitterstim from the spice spiders), and assassinations.
  6. Jabba was known for his gruesome cruelty and never-ending greed.
