In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is the Top 10:
#7: Return of the Jedi
Half-finished Death Star II. Speeder Bikes. Jabba the Hutt. Admiral Ackbar. These are just a few reasons why I love Return of the Jedi. The first time I saw it was at the Eastland Theater in Southern California. The newspaper had printed the wrong time and when my brothers and I showed up, it was right when Jabba’s Sailbarge was exploding. My brothers had already seen it, so they were fine. But I had to wait years until I finally saw the beginning of the movie on VHS.
It is a great movie. I know it can be hard to take the Ewoks seriously (I have poked fun). But, let’s remember THEY EAT HUMANS!!!! They were going to cook Han Solo. The clothes Princess Leia changed into were probably from another human they ate!!! Also, I’m not having any of this Special Edition stuff. I want the original ‘Yub Nub’ song. Because, as a wise man once told me, “no matter what happens, the teddy bears dance in the forest.”
