Star Wars has become one of the biggest movie franchises of all time from the 1970’s all the way to the present. Since Disney will be pushing out more movies, that shouldn’t change for a long, long time. From the beginning it’s had some of the most dedicated fans around, here’s a look at those fans through the years. May the force be with you!
Darth Vader surveys the scene. Beware the forces of the Dark Side.
I always practiced this on my brother when I was a kid. (I actually used my hand).
Nerds, nerds everywhere! You never know when you may need a light saber.
Even Darth Vader gets tired waiting two weeks in advance of the first showing!
I know we normally would be shooting at each other, but, “How are the kids?”
Star Wars Mania sets in.
Some women never want to get out of character. Boba Fett shaving her legs in a bathtub? I’m not sure of the inspiration for this picture, but I’m certainly inspired now.
70 MM and 6 track stereo sound. I bet it sounded awesome at the time!
I remember 1983 going to see Return of the Jedi – and it was awesome!
The crowds of fans extend into the water.
Is Darth Nerd showing Boba Nerd an old iWatch?
A long time ago, in a lawn chair far, far away…
I have seen both movies, but only one I have watched more than ten times!
I will never forget Halloween back then when I dressed up as Luke and my brother dressed up as a Stormtrooper. I bet C-3PO was intimidated by THREE Darth Vader’s.
Chewbacca is struggling to carry the two humans. I expected him to be stronger than than, what with carrying Han Solo for all those years.
Pew! Pew! Admit it ladies, every one of you when you were a kid put those cinnamon buns on the side of your head at least once. Didn’t you?
This is the worst R2D2 one I have been able to find. Terrible, but funny!
These are exactly like the costumes we made 30 years ago! Awesome job guys!
Always super-classy Courtney Black dressed as Darth Talon. Darth Talon is from the Extended Universe, which may no longer be part of the Star Wars canon but it certainly has inspired a lot of great cosplay.
Even the dogs are getting into the action. This cute puppy looks just like an Ewok. I need to get a costume build for me dog too!
And, finally – a funny meme about Star Wars that is so true. People that dress as Jedi to go see the new Star Wars Movie, are the same people who wear jerseys to go see their favorite sports teams!
