Star Wars Day: May The Force Be With You
Grogu! What did I tell you about frogs!
This is definitely NOT the way. 🐸
Hehe! Happy Star Wars Day, belles and beaus ! I’m officially going to the dork side of the force by bingeing Star Wars movies all day today on Disney Plus (Disney+)!
When Disney+ finally arrived on our sunny shores, I literally jumped for joy! I couldn’t wait to revisit old faves such as Beauty and The Beast and discover new gems such as the live action remake of Lady and The Tramp (worth the price of subscription alone)!
While browsing for the next binge-worthy show, one title that kept reappearing was The Mandalorian, set in the Star Wars universe.
Now while I’ve enjoyed a lot of the classic Star Wars movies, a fan of the late great Princess Leia, both on and off the screen, Star Wars is not something that I find myself immediately drawn to.
I finished Wanda Vision, finished Falcon and The Winter Soldier, revisited a few Disney classics and thought, okay, let’s see what this Mandalorian thing is about...
Famous last words..
I’m literally addicted! I binge-watched all two seasons in a matter of days and while the title character is cool, it’s his little friend that caught my eye and quite literally captured my heart!
Introducing The Child (or incorrectly Baby Yoda)!
With every coo, smile and gesture, I found myself falling more and more in love with this little fellow! I even signed up to a Facebook fan-page where people just spend the whole day sharing memes featuring him! Dank farrik!
The series is great, following the adventures of a hardened Mandalorian bounty hunter, Din Djarin, protecting ‘The Child’ from all manner of bad guys from all over the galaxy, a very classy and cool homage to Japanese classics like Lone Wolf and Cub (Shogun Assassin)!
‘The Child’ or Grogu clearly stole the show for me and on hectic days, I even find myself watching clips of this little bundle of adorable joy to cheer myself up!
Totally inspired and surprisingly drawn into the Star Wars universe, I simply had to do a themed photoshoot (come on, you should expect it of me by now). 🙈
I managed to dig out this absolutely perfect ensemble from Joop Boutique to recreate the perfect outfit and Star Wars visual aesthetic but how would I recreate my little friend?
All the images of ‘The Child’ I could find online fell short of the mark but little did I know, hubby had been silently taking note of my intergalactic search and my mind was blown when this little fellow showed up at our doorstep just in time for my birthday and this photoshoot! Awww!!!!
So enough of me going on and on, without further ado, I present to you, ‘My Child’, just in time for Mother’s Day! 😜
If you haven’t already seen the show, you simply have to and I for one, can’t wait for Season 3!
May The Force Be With You, Friends!
