30 Days of Star Wars

30 Days of Star Wars Challenge

We've been on a Star Wars kick lately, so here's a 30 Day Challenge on all things Star Wars.

Day 1: All-Time Favourite Character

Darth Vader. Even though it's kind of a love to hate thing. Watching the prequels I just spend the whole time wishing Anakin wasn't such a total tool destined to bring the Republic to its knees. But then by the original trilogy I'm all for Vader being as bad as possible.

Day 2: Favourite Member of the Rebellion

Princess Leia. She's a badass princess with really cool hair. What's not to love?

Day 3: Favourite Member of the Empire

Grand Moff Tarkin. Just, Peter Cushing. Legend.

Day 4: Favourite Jedi

Obi Wan Kenobi. He always does his best to be a good Jedi even when fate keeps dealing him the worst hands. Also I was 10 when TPM came out, and 13 for AotC - prime ages for being won over by Ewan McGregor's prettiness. ♥

Day 5: Favourite Droid

C-3PO. Obviously.


Day 6: Favourite Creature

Jabba the Hutt.

Day 7: Favourite Sith

Darth Maul. Just look at the guy.

Day 8: Prequels, Original, Sequels?

I like the prequels, probably more than most people, but the original trilogy is the best.

Star Wars Original Trilogy

Day 9: Favourite Scene

'Luke, I am your father...'

I am your Father

Day 10: A Scene That Makes You Happy

Nobody complains quite like C-3PO.

Day 11: A Scene That Makes You Sad

Look, I'm not proud of myself, but I totally cry every time I see the remastered version of RotJ. *sniff* Anakin, why did you have to be such a berk??

Star Wars RotS

Day 12: Favourite Parody

I'd watch it.

Day 13: Most Annoying Character

Yoda. I mean, he's great, but he's also really damn annoying!


Day 14: Favourite Location

The Mos Eisley Cantina, of course.

Day 15: Share Some Trivia

I love that Darth Vader was also the Green Cross Code Man. Prowse and Lucas' feud aside, I still think Star Wars could only have been improved by having Prowse deliver his lines in the thickest West Country accent he could muster. 'Ooh arr, Luke, I am yer faarrther.'

Day 16: Best Costume

Queen Amidala.

Queen Padme Amidala

Day 17: Favourite Colour Lightsaber

Purple! Mace Windu might sound like a knock-off cleaning product, but that doesn't stop him being the coolest Jedi out there.

Mace Windu

Day 18: A Character You Dislike

It's all Qui-Gon Jinn's fault. All of it.

Day 19: Canon OTP

"I love you."

"I know."

Han Solo and Princess Leia

Day 20: Fanon OTP

It has to be Anakin/Obi Wan. I especially like the angstfest of Obi Wan telling Anakin it's just a crush he'll grow out of, because he's all about ~duty and being the responsible one, then Anakin turns to Padme as mix of rebound, confusion and spite. Then Obi Wan gets the next twenty years to reflect on how he could have saved his padawan from the dark side...


Day 21: Favourite Fanwork

I have yet to find the perfect fix-it fic. I still have hope though!

For now, check out this fanvid - it's so cheesy and perfect. 

Day 22: Favourite Prequel Film

The Phantom Menace. The abundance of Jar Jar Binks is balanced out by cool costumes, Padawan!Kenobi, and Anakin still being tolerable. Plus it has the nostalgic element of going to see it at the cinema with my family.

Also: I love this picture so much; it makes it look like a film about a zany family road trip or something.

The Phantom Menace

Day 23: Favourite Original Film

A New Hope. It's one of the first films I ever remember watching, via the wonders of VCR.

Star Wars A New Hope

Day 24: Favourite Sequel Film

The Force Awakens. I love the whole Poe and Finn subplot - Stormtroopers wanting more for the win - but I'm still kind of meh on the rest of it. History repeats but that doesn't mean you can't get bored of the cycle. :/

The Force Awakens

Day 25: Favourite Cartoon

Droids. It's just so very 80s.

Star Wars Droids

Day 26: Favourite Anthology Film

Solo. It was a really fun romp, imo. (Though Rogue One was awesome too!)


Day 27: Favourite Merchandise

The Hot Toys stuff is amazing. The figure I want most is Grand Moff Tarkin though; the detail is awesome.

Hot Toys Star Wars Grand Moff Tarkin

Day 28: Favourite Music

The soundtracks have plenty of moments, but they can't compete with Weird Al Yankovic.

Day 29: Favourite Star Wars Memory

Darth Marianna!

Day 30: Favourite Quote

Do or do not. There is no try.
