9 REASONS WE LOVE

Awesome facts that are beep, beep, beep, beep, beep (Droid translation: out of this world). Star Wars™ for J.Crew “Chewie, we’re home” T-shirts for kids, women and men. Shop the exclusive collection here.
In “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Han Solo says to his furry friend, “Chewie, we’re home,” and you can only find these T-shirts here.


1. SNACK ATTACK

George Lucas was inspired by a half-eaten hamburger (stuck with an olive) when dreaming up the famous Millennium Falcon.


2. LIGHTSABER SOUNDS

How they make the “whummm” sound: waving a microphone in front of a loudspeaker playing humming and buzzing noises.


3. WORLDS COLLIDING

6. JABBA JUICE

It took three puppeteers to operate Jabba the Hutt from the inside, which is pretty inkabunga. (That translates to “incredible” in Jabba’s native language, Huttese.)


7. “LUKE, I AM…”

Darth Vader’s distinct sound was created by amplifying James Earl Jones’s voice with a scuba regulator (a device that reduces air pressure so divers can go farther down).


8. MIND-BLOWING ROBOT FACT

There’s bilingual, trilingual, and when it comes to C-3PO, hex-mega-lingual (he speaks a cool six million languages).


9. BIG NAMES

George Lucas got the idea for R2-D2’s name when a coworker asked for “reel two, dialogue two” while editing another movie.
