Star Wars Challenge - Week 2

Favorite member of the Rebellion.

I'm a prequel girl.  I know, I tend to be in the minority on this one.  There are many, many die-hard SW fans that are purists, you could say, and are very staunch on the fact that the Original Trilogy (OT) offerings are the best.  I beg to differ on so many counts.  Don't get me wrong, I love the OT just as much as the next SW geek, but I just think the prequels are...well...better.  *gasp*

Well, now that the cat is out of the proverbial bag, I do enjoy watching the OT, and just spent some time immersing myself in A New Hope (ANH) and Empire (TESB), just for fun.  Watching these classics always takes me right back into the theater.  You, too?  Especially the opening scene of ANH...just incredible.  Star Destroyers are impressive...most impressive.

Anyway, so my favorite character from the Rebellion, huh?  Had to think about that one a bit.  Not Luke.  Sorry, staunch Luke fans, but he's a bit whiny for me to consider him a Jedi in any capacity.  Leia?  Yeah, very cute and a strong female role-model, but still no as the fave.  I know Han is always a popular choice, but to be honest, I never found him very attractive.  Yeah...I know - now I've crossed the line!

I think my favorite character has to be Artoo.  I love Artoo.  I always have to ask myself if he is Force-sensitive, as he continually seems to know what's going on in a mystical way.  I like how Ben reacts when he first sees him...subtle, but reserved.  Nice.




My favorite character of the Rebellion - R2-D2!
