40 Years of Star Wars Memories: Boba Fett and the Special Editions

Favorite Memories of Star Wars: The Special Editions and Boba Fett

The 40th anniversary of Star Wars dominated Star Wars Celebration Orlando this month. In fact, a celebration of 40 years kicked off the convention. George Lucas, Warwick Davis, Mark Hamill, Hayden Christensen, Harrison Ford and many others recounted the history of Star Wars from 1977 to the present and began the conversation from the Galaxy Stage. Naturally, this lead to many conversations about the best and favorite Star Wars moments from the past 40 years. One of my most favorite moments was the release of the Star Wars: Special Editions. I’m certain this is a controversial pick. Many fans hate the changes made to the classic movies. However, I have many reasons for celebrating the 20th anniversary of the special editions. For now, I’ll focus on two, which include a personal reason and a content addition.

This week features a special edition of Core Worlds Couture – full coverage of Star Wars and the Power of Costume Exhibition at Discovery Times Square, New York City. Read on to learn about the exhibit and experience my adventures!

Whether interested in the fashion/cosplay aspect or not, costumes tell a tale and set a stage like nothing else in a story. “Craftsmanship and artistry in costume design are valued creative components in the Star Wars saga,” said George Lucas. “The detailed precision of a design can be as bold a measure of storytelling as words on a page, leading to the truths at the core of a character, situation or shared history.”

From Legends to Canon: Five Characters that Deserve a Shot

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

“There’s always a bit of truth in legends.” -Ahsoka Tano

Once upon a time, the Expanded Universe (EU) of Star Wars opened up an outlet for me that helped sate my unyielding desire for all things in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. I consider myself a relative newbie to the now-titled Legends category of knowledge and stories, having only come into it about 10 years ago, but I have nonetheless become an intense follower. I have read – and own – countless novels, and have invested myself emotionally and mentally in its lore. When the announcement came in April of 2014, rendering the EU as basically a defunct sector of the Star Wars timeline, I was absolutely heartbroken. First, the cancellation of the Clone Wars series and now, this?! I didn’t know how much more my fangirl heart and soul could take!
