Empire… 100 things you didn’t know

A bit late to the Empire Strikes Back party, but here are many of the reasons we love Star Wars.

Just 100 things we didn’t know… or 100 things YOU may not have known. (I knew some of them, but I’m almost as big a fan as this guy is.) Are you?

My oldest daughter loves the movies and the Clone Wars series. We’re looking forward to the new live action series. The younger daughter expressly dislikes Star Wars, but that’s okay, she’s really into Legend of the Seeker, remember?

Q: So are the stormtroopers also clones?

Love you, Yoda. You to “me”


Yoda is on the verge of really gross and definitely not for the kids. I always just thought he was a puppet and then a cartoon, but really he’s just a guy! Kind of like Danny Elfman, no, Danny Devito! (see Devito Yoda)

Not really. Not for work either. He’s not that bad, just more funny and bawdy than your boss or IT people would probably care to know about. Other than that, enjoy!

Seeing The Phantom Menace for the first time.

I pray you’ll bring sanity back to the Senate.

J is six and today we watched Star Wars Episode I. Here are J’s comments.

Never tell a Jedi, “You’re under arrest.”

Who was that white lady? (Watching the pod race.)

What kind of fabric are their clothes made of? (Anakin and his mother’s on Tatooine.) Information about the costumes. And another article.

I’d bet the fabric would be something synthetic since it’s a desert planet, but here you could go for a linen or bamboo fabric.

Yoda: ” I sense much fear in you.” to Anakin.
J: “Yoda’s a good senser.”

Queen Amidala: “I pray you’ll bring sanity back to the Senate.”
J: “She prays? She believes in God.”

Yoda: “May the Force be with you.”
J: “And also with you. (giggle) Church.” (That’s Daddy’s joke, now she knows the reference first hand.)

Queen Amidala: “Jar Jar, I need your help.”
J: “Oh! Gungans have fine armies!!!” (J puts it all together and remembers what Jar Jar said earlier in the film.)
